Fabric!!

I am knee deep in projects right now!!
Between growing grass {and plants}, painting, refinishing, and sewing – I feel like a crazy lady!!
I also feel like I have crafting ADD where I am bouncing around from one unfinished item to the next – maybe if I bounce around a few more times something may end up finished!

In the meantime – Did I ever tell you that I settled on a fabric for my little boy’s room? Because I did! I am going with the new Riley Blake line – called Peak Hour! When I saw it released I totally fell in love (I shared my love for it on Facebook a while ago) A local fabric store (The Fabric Center) carries the cotton and the flannel – and I have been there 6 times in the last 2 weeks!

I am totally in love with the bright and bold colors and the little cars, trucks and vans are to die for – so cute!!

I have been working on the valance, crib bumpers, crib skirt, baby blankets – and matching twin comforters! That is a lot of fabric (I was lucky enough that Riley Blake actually provided the fabric for one of the comforters!) In my head this room is adorable and fun and bright – so I hope it turns out like I have planned! But really with these fabrics how can one go wrong??

My living room literally looks like the Riley Blake Warehouse exploded in it! (and I would be lying if I didn’t say I love it!!) A project here, a project there, scraps here and there – and {an almost} comforter top in the crazy middle of it all!!

I can’t wait to share all of my fun projects with you – I have some tutorials coming up so stay tuned!! What summer sewing projects are you working on? And do you have crafting ADD too? Maybe it’s the heat!! Oh – and do you like the fabric???

Oh I totally have sewing ADD, too! But for me right now it is all about hand stitching and hexies since recovering from knee surgery doesn't let me sew at my machine (not that there aren't about 5 projects waiting for me when I can). I saw Peak Hour online and ordered myself two charm packs because I thought it was adorable to make something for my friend's little boys! I already have plans for them when I can sew again. I can't wait to see the room all done!

I love all this fabric. Can't wait to see your projects finished. And see the room. You've been working on a ton of changes.

It seems to me like out of nowhere, there is a spark (creativity spark?) and I manage to get out of my funk and everything is so exciting and fresh and I'm ready to tackle those HUGE projects! I am the same as you and have to learn to bide my time, otherwise I end up with a half finished quilt, a half sanded chair, one out of two skirts for the fourth of July parade, etc. I am really happy I'm starting to finally work on my big projects but I need to focus my energy and finish at least one before moving on!
