Yesterday I made miles of binding for Pfeffernusse and machine stitched it in place. Woohoo! I'm putting this aside for Sadie sitting. As you might already know, we are keeping her while her parents work. The secret to quilting while taking care of a sweet baby is to have hand work available! I try to have hand stitching at the ready for when she's in her bouncer or swing. We are both happy! She is a joy to have around.
I also pulled fabric for a new quilt. I know...I still have several UFO's, but I'm making such progress that I allowed myself to start thinking of the next project. This will be a quilt for our living room, speaking of which....our new sofas were delivered this week!!!!
We have been living here for 3 months without a single sofa. We sold ours when we moved from the cottage. I ordered the matching sofas the week we closed on the house and I'm happy to report we LOVE them. On a trip to Birmingham just before Covid hit, we went to several furniture stores and I sat on dozens of sofas. Comfort was the key. I am long waisted, but my legs are not long. I wanted to be able to sit with my feet on the floor and my back against the sofa back. The winner was the Ethan Allen Marcus sofa. We ordered them in a light gray fabric and they are fabulous!
We have added new furniture pieces here and there as needed. I still need a couple of rugs and some throw pillows. but we are making progress. I'm almost ready to share photos of my sewing room - it's working very well for me.
Today I need to get back on the mask making train. And I have another little project I may work on. AND I may practice making a video for our Curved Hexie Stitch Along - yes, you can find all the info in a tab at the top of the blog!
