What was I sewing? I'm glad you asked. I was finishing up the trim on this little quiltie. I didn't really do any quilting so I guess it's really more of a fabric collage.
I was inspired by a C.S. Lewis quote. He can always settle my mind a bit. "We are what we believe we are" was the quote I liked last night so I chose an image to go with it and just kept going. I have a whole sheet of his quotes to play with. I chose them, saved them, reversed them, and then printed them onto iron-on paper so that whenever I want one I just have to cut it out, iron it on some muslin or something and sew it on. I may even just iron them all onto muslin so they'll be ready to be sewn on!
Tim and I ran out to ACMoore today but I didn't get anything. I walked around with clay for a while....I put that back and walked around with watercolor paper for a while....then we left. heee I still hear my mommy at all times "you don't NEED that Lisa." It's a helpful thing. I am going back for that watercolor paper when I have a coupon though. (grin)
