Somehow the weeks just keep speeding by and I feel like I have nothing to show you guys. I took a little break from sewing this week to start to spruce up my sewing space. Well I painted a shelf anyway. I'm hoping that once it is hung I will have a place for some of my go to quilting books, precuts, and a few special treasures I like to keep in my space. I'm also planning to hang some art on the walls-I have all of the tags from the precuts I have used in the past and I'm thinking a little shadow box or mosaic of them would be kind of cool.
So the shelf is actually a light aqua color-it's a little hard to tell in this bad iphone photo. The color is Tropical Surf by Glidden just in case you wanted to know. I was inspired to paint it light aqua by Camille's hutch. She actually used a different color but when I was at the store I was afraid that shade would be too light and gray against my pale off white walls. So I went with a color that had less grey and was a few shades darker.
In sewing news I did finish my Complications Quilt top. Well maybe, it is done with the exception of the boarders which I decided to leave off. Right now it is roughly 62 by 73. I am thinking about adding a little more to two of the sides just to make it a little bigger. What do you think? Big enough for a lap quilt or does it need a little more?
I had been wanting to try them since the first commercial I saw. Not a big fan but at least now I can stop looking for them in every store I walk into.
That's it for me this week. Head on over the Lee's to see what everyone else is up to.
