Third to Next Sewing Project

I think this cool serger cover will be my third to next sewing project.

Isn't it nifty? 

My sewing machine needs a cover, too, and I might use this pattern


Now I say the serger cover will be my third to next sewing project, because I already have a few in the works!  I just didn't want to forget about this one, so I figured I'd blog about it. That'll help, right?  One can hope.

My current sewing projects are a quilt and pillow cases.   The quilt is being made out of old neckties.  Old. Ugly. Neckties.

from the 70's. They're not even silk. Some of them are brocade, taffeta, and one even feels like burlap. All extremely ugly. I'll post photos when I can get a chance.

So I'm cutting them into 1 1/2 inch strips and then I'll cut those strips into 1 1/2 inch squares and sew them all together again. If it works out. I might get bored along the way.  I have about 16 of these ugly ties. I don't know how big of a quilt they will make, but I'm willing to experiment!

The pillow cases haven't been started yet, nor do I have the fabric, for them, but I'm going to Joann's tomorrow armed with 12 coupons for 40 - 50% off!

Once those projects are done, I can start on the serger and sewing machine cases.

The only problem - writing is getting in the way. I'm not allowing myself to work on the necktie quilt until I write at least 1,000 words in a day. *sigh*

It happened yesterday, but today there is clogging class, so I don't know. Here's hoping.
