That's what I spent a chunk of the evening wondering as I dug through patterns, fabrics, books, buttons, this and that, and all the general detritus of the sewing room. What was I thinking several months ago when I tucked away a packet of buttons and embellishments for the Bunny Hill Pumpkinville quilt? Because if I could just remember my thought process at that time, maybe I could recall where I put it.
The Sweat Shop is starting to look like it might explode again. Although I don't feel I've been buying very much lately to add to the clutter, I must be buying more than I'm using because I suddenly don't seem to have room for what I have. Or maybe it's just that I haven't really kept up with organizing things as I should; I think it's just about time for another serious clean out. And I started that a bit tonight, just because I didn't really have any other options.
Here's the first little thing I thought I could do. Are any of you interested in the Bunny Hill Autumn House pattern? It's not exactly in pristine condition since it was used when it came to me and then I've made the quilt too, but I'd be happy to pass it on to someone who's interested in making it. Just as a reminder, here's what my quilt looks like--keep in mind it still needs to be quilted:
The quilt finishes at 49" x 57", so it's a nice medium large wall hanging size. If you're industrious and start right away, you might have it done by THIS autumn; if you're a little slower, you still have NEXT autumn to shoot for. If more than one person wants the pattern, I'll have a drawing on Saturday night and post the identity of the victor on Sunday's blog post.
Since I've finished this one and I'm nearly done with Merry, Merry Snowmen, I thought I'd get out the pattern for Pumpkinville and start making plans. That's when I started wondering where the embellishment kit was. And after looking in every logical place I thought it could be, I finally decided I'd never purchased it in the first place. Thinking back, I remembered I bought the pattern hot off the press, and I don't think there WAS an embellishment kit yet. So I guess I'd better buy that before I forget and go through all of this again. And as crazy full as the Sweat Shop seems right now, I'm pretty sure I still have room for one little embellishment kit. All is not lost. It just seems that way sometimes.
