Just finished binding my projects from last night's Friday Night Sew-In. Normally, I'm so flippin' tired by Friday night that I don't even want to think about doing anything, and usually just hang out on the couch and watch TV. But last night was different. I was looking forward to joining in on my first FNSI. After work yesterday, I ran by Joann's Crafts on the way home (just in case I changed my mind about the project I wanted to work on), picked up a pizza and a bottle of wine (not at JoAnn's!), stopped by Creative Crafts to pick up a pattern that they were holding for me (will hopefully make this cute little item in the next week or so!), came home and played with Giacomo the Schnoodle, had a cup of coffee, ate dinner, got my comfy clothes on, poured a glass of wine, and headed upstairs. Whew! I listened to junk TV for awhile, until my hubby came upstairs and saved me by playing guitar and singing for me in the next room. <3
The project I had planned was a wall hanging for my new office. Well, actually 2-3 wall hangings. I had a 3-picture panel of Java by Deb Strain for Moda. Anyone who knows me knows how much I LOVE COFFEE! I bought this a couple of years ago and thought I wanted to do something with it for my kitchen/dining room but just never got around to it.
I recently moved into a new office at work, and the walls are bare. There were two screws on the wall that held a picture frame for the previous person who occupied that office. So I thought this would be the perfect place to hang Java because of the dark browns (same color as my desk). I decided to cut the panel into 3 separate pieces and add some borders with the matching fat quarters that I bought at the same time. I got two of them done, except for finishing off the binding, so I finished that today. I think the third one will go in the kitchen!
