Hello! I'm writing from the Felicity Quilts Pouch Sweatshop here in (not-at-all-sunny-didn't-you-get-the-memo-it's-June?) Vancouver. Lots of production this week - we've exceeded our quota! Three pouches for teacher gifts, and two more for the Vancouver Modern Quilts Guild's pouch swap with the Portland Modern Quilt Guild.
A full post on the swap pouches is forthcoming - for now, here's a sneak peek at one of them.
That's Aurifil 12wt 100% cotton thread - absolutely dreamy to stitch with.
That little tag with the "F" on it is my attempt at a DIY labeling strategy. I stamped the letters FQ on some cotton twill tape, folded it and sewed it into the side seam. I'm thinking I should just fall off my wallet and order some labels.
So while I was making the pouches, I wasn't doing anything else that remotely addressed my WIP situation. Not to worry - all that will change once I spend all day this Saturday at one of Krista's fabulous day retreats.
In other news, my Habitat pillows have made it into the finals of the Summer Sewing Contest at Ellison Lane! Lots of beautiful projects have been shortlisted - please do go have a look and vote for your favourites.
