patchwork digger

November 18th, 2008

I started this digger almost a year ago (it’s nice to have a record of the things you make, but it’s not so nice to see just how long you can procrastinate) and it should be in the shop later today.  It’s funny how my tastes have changed in a year. I wanted to rip up all the patchwork and start again, but then it would have sat around another year I’m sure.  A lot of the scraps came from my first big sewing project (and my first big post). I think it’s time I cleaned out my scrap box and made a quilt. Or an army of patchwork diggers.

*My site was a little messed up this past week–if you couldn’t leave a comment or find a post I’m sorry. My genius of a husband fixed it all, so comment away.

    i totally understand what do you mean by changing taste in a year.
    all the patch work shows that you put a lot of work in that digger.
    it looks wonderful.

    Your digger is wonderful! Sometimes projects take a while but at least it did get done. I have a few never-to-be-finished projects that really probably never will be finished.
