post anyway

I'm not getting much done lately.  Which is pretty boring.  I really need to start  a few small, easy to finish projects so I have something to share!

So in an attempt to create some kind of content, a couple of fabric mosaics:

The first is my entry in Sew Mama Sew's weekly Fat Quarter Idol.  This week's theme is "meet me at the picnic".  I can't remember the last time I went on a picnic.  Is that weird?  I mean I've sat on the ground and eaten a snack mid hike, but other than that I really prefer to eat indoors.  Less bugs, dirt and dogs snatching your food.  Which could explain why my fabrics don't really scream picnic.  I like the combo, though.

Second mosaic was inspired by Jenelle at Echinops and Aster.  I was lucky enough to get a spot in her orange, aqua and grey mystery charm swap, and these are the fabrics I'd pick if I were hosting.  And if I have any sway on her choices at all, Jenelle, we need that aqua ruler print!  Please?

  1. I'm in Jenelle's swap too. Can't WAIT!!

  2. Ok Chelsea. We can probably do the ruler print since you said please, but I won't tell you any more about the fabrics until they arrive. ;) I actually saw some of it in person yesterday (Sunni and I had a non-swap related fabric shopping day in Seattle, more on that later!) and it is really vibrant and just about the perfect scale for a charm. It is heavier canvas, so hopefully peeps won't mind that.

  3. oh i love that aqua ruler also! love it!
