Hello there.
Household sewing project #3

A pretty pile

January 27

Somehow I manage to get myself all worked up about nothing this afternoon. Now I am cranky and tired and just over it. So how about some pretty fabric to look at? That normally puts a smile on my face. For an even bigger smile, I just might make something. How's that for an attitude adjustment?



I see you found the cherry floral but not the gray leaf. I Have the gray leaf but not the cherry floral! Ugh! Isn't it luscious though? The pics don't do it justice. I went to bed dreaming the other night of what to make with this line!


Oh, I have that orange - isn't it lovely! Make yourself something fun. :)

Whenever i need a quick happy boost i check out my stash and imagine projects! Totally instant lift!

Hi Colleen - I do have the gray leaf...not sure why it isn't in this photo. Anyhow, I love this line, too. I'm excited to cut into it. - Erin


Sometimes just touching my fabric makes me happy. I'm always surprised at how my mood changes with just a quick 5 minutes of sewing as well.


Gotta love fabric as a mood lifter.

Ooooh, so pretty! Forgive my ignorance - what line is this? I, too, have been all worked up about something, probably just being "too emotional!" Thanks for the eye candy, almost as good as the real thing, which I can't get right now, seeing as I'm at work (on a break, mind you :-)


Oh - I see a bunch or orange - are you doing the tangerine tango challenge? (I think that's the name of it) I am seriously considering doing it, but am afraid if I do my husband may put my sewing machine up for adoption...

Hi Jodi - this is the Aunt Edna line by DS Quilts for JoAnn'a. Hope that helps! -Erin

I'm not familiar with that challenge. What is it?


Absolutely! Life gives ya lemons, make lemonade sister! Except I bet you'll be making something far better than lemonade!


Oh no? Was it something I said???

oh no! not at all! our call was a bright spot in the day!!!
i came down with a stomach bug in the middle of the night so i just think i was getting sick.


made me grin! thanks :)

(and i do so hope that stomach bug hightails it, QUICK!)


I find I do that all the time, work myself up and then need to talk my way down. It bugs me to no end. Glad you are feeling better!


IT is a quilt challenge going on right now in the blogoshphere. The perameters are that you use mainly tangerine/orange, and can use a neutral and another color to create your design. There is a huge, adn very inspirational, flikr group as well. I may need to make ALL of them... lol... Or maybe just buy the fabric and look at it.


Love love love the pretties! I can't wait to see what you make, you have to post pictures! Fabric always puts me in a better mood. And with my two boys.... sometimes I need a lot of fabric :)


gorgeous colors!!!
