I have a list of things to-do that's a mile long. And absolutely nowhere on that list does it say 'go make something for your sewing room.' But this last weekend I set the ever present to-do list to the side and made myself a pretty sewing machine cover. I used my Nesting Chairs fabric and the matching Nesting Chairs pillow panel (for the big chair in the center). I pieced it together in strips with white sashing and quilted it in stripes and a concentric box. All that's left to do it make and attach the binding and add grommets with ties to keep the sides closed.
I'm thrilled with the way it's turned out so far. I love little projects like this so I can actually finish them. I think I worked for 3 hours or so on Saturday and it was a great diversion and really fun. (Insert sheepish grin here...Remember that duvet cover I started a while ago? It still sits unfinished. I've finished piecing the top but haven't quilted it/assembled the duvet pocket...I hope to get that finished soon...) So, I'm hoping my machine cover project may have inspired you to tackle a quick and fun project (that's not on your to-do list!).
I'm going to give away a FQ set of Nesting Chairs in Aqua/Orange + 1 Pillow Panel to one winner. Yahoo for giveaways, right?!?
