Sew, Sew Sunday

 I got two packages from Connecting Threads this week. First I ordered some backing material for Daddio's wonky Christmas quilt and some material I thought would make a nice apron. Now that I see it, I think not. Too dark.

 Then I saw this new collection. It's called Penguins Love Colors and it will be an apron for January. I didn't know it at the time but it's also a children's book. Cute.

 The extra wide backing material I was waiting for was a bust. Apparently I don't know how to measure it and it was too small. It's 104" wide and like a big dummy I ordered only one yard. I was really ticked at myself because the whole point of it was that I didn't want seams on the back. Grrrr...

I got over my tizzy, seamed it and then made my sandwich. I'll start quilting it on the Juki another day. I was all done in by the drama. I needed to go sit in a quiet corner and knit then get out and enjoy the snow we have left.


  1. Those penguins are just too, too cute!

  2. Ohmy goodness . I 'd fail a lot more often if I did ALL The crafts that you manage to do ! Hugs. Twill get better!

  3. Love those penguins but ALL of the fabric is beautiful. No one but you will even notice the seam. You are amazing!

  4. I had my quilting group Christmas party today; for the gift exchange I ordered the penguin fabric kit for a tote! I loved it , too! An apron will be very cute out of it!
    Sorry for the backing drama-it happens!

  5. Can't wait to see the penguin apron - too cute!
