Pretties and projects

I’m closing in on the final days of my editing project – the manuscript is so close to being finished (first round of edits, anyway!) that I can nearly taste it.  Yay!

When I put so much time into my writing I have to put extra time into playing too.  I can’t write well if I don’t also enjoy a little tactile creativity.  So I figured a trip to the local fabric store, the beautiful Millie P’s, was in order.  🙂

I’m not yet sure what I’ll make with all of these pretty fabrics.  Maybe some new hot pads or table runners for the kitchen, maybe a few pillow covers for my boys or my office.  There are lots of fun possibilities – and lots of inspiration as I work my way through the rest of my manuscript.   So (sew) excited! 🙂

  1. I’m so excited to hear you are almost done editing! 🙂

    You clearly have an eye for picking fabric. Those stacks are just delightful and I can’t wait to see what you make.

    • Thanks – it was so much fun picking them out!
      After I finish editing the manuscript, I send it off to two editors and see what they think…. it’s hard to wait for their comments!

  2. I went and treated myself to some new fabrics on the weekend. I had a voucher and just felt like enjoying some pretty colours. I have no specific project in my head but a few ideas. I think your fabrics are so inspiring and so many possibilities!

    • I’m so glad my fabric picks inspired you! Isn’t it so much fun to browse the stores and soak up all the lovely colors? I can’t wait to see what you picked, and what you make in the coming weeks! 🙂
