But I have such a short attention span these days, i can't trust myself to begin a large project and see it through to completion. Perhaps it's all these purses I've been sewing that has ruined me. I want to make a queen size quilt for our bed, but the task seems entirely too overwhelming. Perhaps it's because it's October 4th, and it's over 80 degrees. Yes. In the Northeast. What the? So I content myself with manageable patchwork activities, like this scarf, made with my favorite fabrics from my stash, along with decadent dupioni silk accents:
I am sitting here with this loopy grin on my face because I am simply so pleased with the way it turned out. It's the first one I've made, but I don't think it'll be my last. I've been just drooling over the patchwork scarves out there, thank you Denyse Schmidt, and just had to try my hand. It took me all stinkin' day, but I don't mind, it was so much stinkin' fun. Of course, the colors have to be in the brown, blue, peachy pink family. That is my current color fixation. Until I tire of it, and move on to another color fixation. That seems to be the cycle. I have listed it on ETSY today. Alrighty, i may have to take a short break from designing to work on some customs that are on board...till then.
