some progress, but not donePosted: July 31, 2010
um, i’m not even sure i like sewing.
i think i like the idea of sewing.
just not the execution. not the actual act of sewing.
i like finding vintage fabrics.
i want so desperately to be one of those women who can crank out quilts like nobody’s business. it’s a trait and skill to be admired. i am so S L O W. i never would’ve been employee-of-the-month in a third world country sweat shop.
that said, those 148 little fabric squares of hell are cut out and pieced together for a pillow. found and admired this gorgeous pillow here, which led me to the tutorial here, which led me to think i could do this no prob. i’ve still got a back ache from cutting out all those dinky pieces of fabric.
i need to put this one away for awhile before i finish it. some projects you just need to take a break from before you hate them.
which reminds me, this was also supposed to be a pillow, but i ended up needing to walk away from it as well. no idea how to finish it.
i took the pattern from a vintage drinking glass.
is it any wonder i can’t commit to a human being? i can’t even stand to be around fabric for any length of time.
