I'm inspired!!

Oh how good it feels! Yesterday I was supposed to clean my kitchen, but to tell the truth, I was too tired. I didn't feel like coming home from work and do a very necesary but very uninspiring job.

So instead, I took out my rotary cutter, my rulers and mat and began cutting away! Oh it felt so good! I even put a -very much needed- new blade in my cutter (my last spare one! yikes!). I just grabbed the fabrics, selected the combination I had in my mind and started cutting away...


And cutting away....


Lovely strips of my favourite fabrics from my stash.... Mmmmm.. I gues pink is quite the predominant color in my stash... will have to do something about it as soon as I have some spare money.

After I cut all the strips, I called it a day and today I got up in the wee-smalls and began joning, ironing, piecing this project... Can you guess what it is? I think not! lol!

My trusted little Singer Tica. The first sewing machine I bought myself. It is really simple, a bit small for quilting (very short arm) but it has not let me down yet! There it is, my little pet, next to the folded fabric that is now something more than just fabric, however simple it may be still...

Oh, and last night I also began teaching myself how to do a new crochet stitch... I had to to the first knot at least five or six times before I got it right!!! but I'm proud of my effort!


Isn't it great how it feels when you challenge yourself to learn something new/do something and you acomplish it???

Is that the solomon's knot stitch? I've unsuccessfully tried that one before. I really like your colorful yarn.

Oh, everyone has so many secrets nowadays! First Libby, then you... Just tell us, what are you sewing?

And yeah, it feels great when you finally got to do something you find difficult. Congrats! :-D

Just be happy! said...

I'm curious, I hope you reveal the secret soon...
Love the new stitch as the yan as well!

Ashley: the name of the stitch in the book is Lover's Knot, and the yarn is cotton and oh so shiny and easy to work with! I had a hard time getting it right, but once I figured it out, it is sooo easy! If you ever try it, the secret is in getting the correct "back single thread". THAT was what kept me in knots, pardon the pun!

Alhana: la curiosidad mató al gato! hehehe! en unos dias sabrán!

Ale: hehe! I hope to finish it by friday so I can tell you all about it. Isn't this stitch cool??
