Preparing something for you...

Do you have some fabrics leftover from an old (or new) jelly roll?
Maybe you have a basket of 2 1/2" wide prints?
As I have a few in my scrap bin, and assumed you might too, I thought it might be fun for us all to make a pretty project from them.

After the housework and baking were out of the way this morning I decided to get lost in my sewing room and play with these Tilda bits and pieces...


...which are beginning to look rather good together.

Tutorial later in the week.
Any ideas what we'll be making?

"Be still my beating heart!"
(that was a hint, okay?)

Have a brilliant week,
hugs

  11. Oh my gosh Jenny! It looks so lovely, I'm thinking it looks like the beginnings of a patchwork heart project. I love lots of 2 1/2" scraps in my basket. What ever it is, after a long time away from any kind of sewing, I'm truly anxious to get back to some projects. Starting with smaller, fun, and hopefully one day projects as I work my way back to the my for difficult projects. Can't wait to see it. Big Big Hugs sweet friend, you and yours in my prayers always.

  12. Doubtful it's a heart monitor. LOL Love the pieces together, and I think I'm just going to guess a heart sachet, maybe. It'll be wonderful, whatever it is. Thanks!

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
Jenny
