Coincidence? Or, Divine Intervention…
So, it all started out innocently enough. I was excited! I made the big executive decision to merge the girls’ things into one room. Here’s why: they sleep together anyway and they hardly use the other as a playroom.
I wickedly and swiftly had my own sewing room. I cannot show you pictures yet because it is still quite messy and I wouldn’t want to confuse you all with imperfection. (HA!) So, after the machine had been moved in, and I figured out storage, and the like, it came time to decorate a bit. I’d had this cheater print from Denyse Schmidt for awhile and didn’t have any grand plans for it and so this is what has become of it. I cut three squares and stretched them over a canvas frame from the art supply store. I love them.
So, I had a fair amount left over. I thought that the nice home dec weight of the canvas, and those lovely, wacky squares would turn into a nice bag or tote. So, I started to make one and here’s what we have so far….
I’m pretty excited about making a bag out of this. I’m using Peltex fusible stabilizer so it will be extra boxy and have firm sides, which I like. And, what’s the big deal about making a bag out of this? Well, it’s not. Except, a few mornings later, I opened up my Denyse Schmidt newsletter email to find this.
Hmmm. Interesting. County Fair fabrics are in the air I suppose. Well, they were. Literally.
Fastforward a few days and what comes in the mail for me? My DQS7 quilt from my partner. It was her first step into the quilting world and I think she made a great, sweet quilt. Uh…notice a theme here?
And not only did she make this, but she sent leftover stash…
So there you have it. Do things really happen in threes? I say yes.
