It was a beautiful Memorial Day weekend. We had a wonderful time cooking out with one of my sons at his new apartment. Not much time for quilting though! With a new week I plan on getting back at it.
I am still busy sewing curves. There are 320 of those small units to create before I can start putting blocks together. Progress is being made, but i have a ways to go. I did take time out to play with the scraps from this project and made something a bit different from my usual quilts.
It all started in Paducah when we found some pretty cool lamps in one of the vendor booths. I loved them, but was not willing to pay what they were asking. What’s a girl to do? Make my own of course! When we got home, Pam and I did a road trip to Goodwill where we both purchased lamps to repurpose, then a stop at Hobby Lobby to buy some Mod Podge and I was good to go.
This lamp was not real pretty, but it was exactly what I was looking for. Time to pull out the scraps! I cut them into circles freehand and got ready to glue them down. One by one I added them to the lamp.
I am pleased with the final project. It was fun to use some of those scraps in a new and different way. Here is the lamp that now adds light to me sewing room.
Now, back to sewing those curves!
