Apparently 2 is under the limit...

so here's a couple of pictures I can share while I wait for my photo storage account to be expanded (which should happen within the next 24hours).
 Okay, back to my project... I designed a new cover for my serger using those patchwork crosses I shared with you last week.  It is such an improvement over the thin, plain white, soft plastic, completely worn out cover which originally came with my (20 year old) Janome serger.


I'm really happy with the details on this new cover - like the cheery red piping I made for the end panels and that yummy cherry print binding along the bottom edge.  I won't even go into just how giddy the dotty aqua fabric I used for the side panels makes me. Oh, I heart dotty fabric. lol  So fresh and pretty!
Funny, how much that new cover is brightening up my sewing space.  It's definitely inspiring me to come up with other projects to refresh my creative space - perhaps this is the start of a Spring- Makeover for my sewing room.

  4. Oh what a great use for that thrifted skirt and your scraps. It is so bright and cheerful, especially since I'm sure that you are more than ready for spring. I know my family in Canada sure are.
