A friend and I are meeting at her church Sunday evening to do some sewing. Between now and then, I need to figure out what I can accomplish in 3-4 hours and pack it up. My rolling bag is filled with scrapbook supplies, so I either need to empty it out
or find a different transportation method for this time. No flights of stairs (a few random curbs and such), but plenty of walking to get to/from car. Any ideas?
Then, on Tuesday, my bedroom decor sewing class begins. I need to have my designs and measurements and fabrics ready for the first class. I have the fabric for both DD's bedroom (Ikea line of 5-6 prints and coordinating bright solids) and our master bedroom (batik FQ I collected on a road trip). I had designs (handmade patterns) for several items in DD's room, but am not sure where they are now. Measurements? If I have them, they are with the missing graph paper designs. She has a new curtain rod, though, so needs new measurements for that. Also, I want to add a flannel or fleece layer closest to the window just in our coolest months. Gotta think about that a bit more. For our bedroom, I want to do a Turn Twenty quilt top and create a reversible duvet. I haven't figured out what I want on the other side, though. I was originally thinking the batiks would be for our cool season and then have whites/creams for our warm season. Washing the duvet would be troublesome if I did that, though. A friend suggested having the two sides completely disconnect for washing separately. Gotta think about that more, too. Any ideas?
While typing, I remembered what I need to sew first. DD's shower curtain. Any leftover fabric from that will end up in her duvet. In fact, her curtains also need to be finished before the duvet, as well. Well, pretty much everything in her fabric needs to be completed before I start the duvet. Her duvet is going to be a Take 5 quilt top on one side and a solid sheet on the other side (I think -- gotta see what I saved for it). I want the Take 5 to include all her fabrics, which is more than the original pattern calls for....hence my homemade graph paper design floating around somewhere...
I think my mission for the rest of the week is clear:
1) Straighten up scrapbook supplies.
2) Dig out bedroom/bathroom decor projects.
3) Verify shower curtain measurements.
