It’s January. That means February and March are right around the corner. And that means I have a lot of unselfish sewing to do. Why do I always forget this?! My mom’s birthday is coming up, as is my niece Katie’s and my nephew Thor’s. I have to get on this. Pronto! I have an idea for my mom’s gift, but haven’t found the right fabric yet. Maybe a day trip to LA is in order? Let me know if any of you in the LA area are interested in meeting up and I will throw out a couple of dates.
Last night, my dear friend Tim put in an order for some of the bibs I make occasionally for baby gifts. I ran to my stash to pick out fabrics and found only 3 suitable girl fabrics. When I was buying fabric for the bib business that never was, I really stocked up on boyish prints because they’re harder to find. That means I have too few girlish prints on hand now. Must. rectify. this.
I finished up the bibs a few moments ago and will put them in the mail this afternoon. I really love the large-scale floral fabric in tangerine and raspberry. It reminds me of my colorblock dress. 🙂
Should I get new labels that say San Diego now? 😉
In other sewing news, I think I may have just introduced one of my new San Diego friends to sewing. She’s taking a four-week intro class nearby. I took her to our nearby Yardage Town to get all her supplies. She bought a really cute purple and black buffalo plaid cotton to make her first project, pajama pants. I can’t wait to hear how her first class goes.
Ok, gotta go find some fabric and patterns for all the unselfish sewing I have ahead of me.
