Uh oh.

October 2, 2008 at 3:06 am (Quilting) (, , )

It would appear that I have possibly acquired a new hobby.

Involves thread of some variety? Check.

Time-consuming? Check.

Generally regarded as uncool? Check. (maybe knitting is getting too mainstream? 😉 )

Potential for stash acquisition and project planning that exceeds my probably life expectancy? Check.

The fabric in the photo is from a cute little tin box I bought when I visited the Quilt Museum in York when I was there for Chris and Jo’s wedding. There are 35 charm squares, and they are meant to make a little quilt with appliqued flowers on it. Sod that. I’m going to make a bag . . . or at least attempt one. I should point out that I have no pattern, no quilting book (and the web is woefully uninformative) and no sewing machine. I’m hand piecing, with the English paper method. This is clearly the way madness lies. (Although it may be a potential back up plan for my flight to San Francisco, if they take my (wooden) knitting needles off me.)

(You may also want to note the timing of this post. It’s 3 a.m., and I have to be at my horrendous soul-destroying temp job in 6 hours.)
