206: the fabric of my life, lately

melissa averinos

I think it's gonna be a while before I can cut into these precious pieces of Kokka

Remember, these are the ones I got at Bolt that night in Portland?

Oh, how I love this one:

A-Line skirt? Jumper? Definitely some small bag in addition to whatever else I make.

Oh, Yum.

At Quilt Market, I bought a darling charm square pack from Bunny's Designs, a distributor of supercute Japanese fabrics. These are a few of my faves:

Killin me. Killin me with the cuteness! 

I've been sewing a little:

I am trying to grow out my hair, and it is making me mental. More mental than usual, I mean. So I am making some cute headbands to contain the craziness that is my hairdo these days. I'll take some pics soon. They're just some simple  little patchwork-y headbands. Reversible. I wear them every day now.  

I had cut a bunch of fabric a few months ago, so that when I feel like sewing I can just dive in. The other day, I grabbed a bunch of the yellow-y pieces and started some patchwork:

Not sure what I'll do with it yet.

But you know me: I never have a plan. And that's the way (uh huh, uh huh) I like it (uh huh, uh huh) . 

 A digression:
I saw KC and the Sunshine band in concert, you know. And no, silly, that wasn't the embarrassing first concert I mentioned before. I saw them maybe ten years ago  at the Melody Tent here on the Cape. ( This was the site of that first concert, though. No one has guessed yet, so there is still a prize waiting if you do.) So, yeah, KC and the Sunshine Band! They were awesome!

Oh my god, am I too silly for you? I am feeling all spazzy. 

Ok, back to , um...  what were we talking about? Fabric, right. Oh, did you notice that all of those pictures are super warmy-colored?

That's what happens when you take pictures in a pink room:

The whole room has a glow to it. It's great for living in, not so great for accuracy of colors in pictures. Oh well, I love it.
See how the cats have clawed the arm of the chair? Charming, isn't it? Yeah, I don't think so either.

Oh, hey, I wanted to thank you for all of the wonderful comments lately. I had always thought that only the people who commented really enjoyed what I am doing here. I love how a giveaway encourages people  to come out and say something that I might not otherwise hear. Someone telling me they are inspired by what I write or show- well that is just amazing. So, thank you.  

My 200th Post Giveaway is still open, so make sure you leave a comment to have a chance at a yummy bundle of goodness. I will start to gather up the goods this week, but it will probably take me a while to complete the package. I am kind of a perfectionist about these things.

Hey, what are you making these days? Feel free to leave a link to your blog or flickr to show everyone! 

xo, m
