Ok, so here's a "keeping it real" moment. I took this photo a couple weeks ago for the Moda Blog Hop, and to be totally honest, nothing has changed much...
...well that's not entirely true. There are actually more fabric scraps on the floor. But that's ok, because someone loves scraps:
Most of the time, Lou likes to "help" me.
And despite that, i managed to get all these squares cut for the quilt i'm working on.
Franny is more of a planner, so she helped me pick the strike offs for Daydream (way back in April):
Chin rubs help her think better:
Lou also likes to supervise my sewing from above to make sure all those seams are lining up:
And if they aren't, you know what that means...
If you don't have one of these in your sewing box, you might want to think about getting one! It's a seam ripper made by Tacony, and like none other. That little rubberized beehive thingie at the end is used like an eraser to grab and pull out all the small threads in a ripped seam (see it in action). No more picking them out by hand! Which means Lou can spend less time supervising and more time napping.
More soon. This quilt isn't going to sew itself! Hope you have a beautiful weekend.
