I've been suffering from CADD (Crafting Attention Deficit Disorder) today.
It all started yesterday during my work's town hall meeting. I spent the hour and a half meeting doodling in a notebook, coming up with ideas to modify my current garb to look a little cooler.
So I came home full of ideas today and set up my dress form.
As you can see, the corset that I bought to go with this dress doesn't really work out so well. Oh gee, I guess I'll just have to make myself a new dress, so that I have something to wear with my corset. Shucks. ;)
Then I was distracted by the patches I am attempting to embroider. We've been through three iterations so far.
I think the last one looks the best but I am considering a slightly different shape to better accommodate the dragon.
While those were stitching out, I finished up the last few of the blankets for DollsforAlzheimers.
I have a full box now, at least sixteen of these doll sized blankets, so I'll ship them out soon. I was able to reduce my fleece stash from one overflowing bin to about half of a bin.
There are eight pieces of fleece still in here, but I have plans to make crochet edged blankets out of them. The yarn that I have set aside to use is in the bottom of the bin.
But wait, that's not all.
I started to lay out this quilt to be sandwiched. The patches are still stitching away here. They take a while.
I realized that I needed to iron the backing fabric and piece it together to get a large enough back. But my ironing board is still in my car from making surcoats and sword covers last Saturday.
So I had to clean up my sewing room a bit, or I wouldn't be able to fit the ironing board back where it belongs.
And that's when I came across these, in one of those "oh, shiny!" moments. These are cut offs from a quilt I've already put together.
I have a GREAT idea for what to do with these - a strip quilt!
To finish up a long story, my ironing board is still in my car.
I guess I'd better go get it, I'm going to need it to work on my strip pieced quilt.
