Music to Sew By… or …Plans, Dreams and Oy! I Need More Time

September 27, 2010 · 3 comments

Happy Monday on You! The weather here is soooo nice! It actually was in the 50ºs this morning.
I have a whirlwind of sewing planned. It HAS to get done. When I am in that mode I MUST have a music playlist {at bottom of post. Click on it to make it big and then click again}. Of course I always listen to music … it’s in my bones {see my self-centered list} and my likes are very eclectic. I love all sorts of tunage. Do you have a list you sew/quilt by? A favorite type? I am posting just one of my playlists. It is one of my “high adrenaline, dang I got a lot to do” versions, not my “calm yourself down girl!” versions Text only…cuz ya know how I ranted about sites that auto play music… although I have to admit there are a few sites that have great selections, like Heather’s…love it!

Here’s what’s on my cutting table and some stacks to drool over:
I LOVE the High Society by Khristian A. Howell for Anthology fabrics. I had a custom request for a hat with Henna-ish / Paisley-ish / fabric. I think this will be perfect. I am going to hoard the leftovers for some quilting…

I know I’m probably late to the Anna Maria Horner Little Folks Voile party…but OMG! It is such a wonderful fabric. Like buttah I tell ya! This is the Little Honey in Berry sitting on the top of my stack…

A few of my fabrics tagged for cycling gear…

Oh! Oh! I forgot to tell you I WON a giveaway from Kristie at Obsessive Crafting Disorder A nicey {heh} stack of Nicey Jane and also some custom note cards that are being created by Samantha over at Paper by Paper Dolls

Also… I am making a dress for a sweet soon to be 5 yr old out of this fabric from A Little Sweetness

Just a little more stash candy…

Okay here is my music playlist. {seriously robyn? 99 songs? couldn’t add one more??} Let me know if you sew/quilt/craft/etc to music and if so, do you have favorites?
Rock On my Fibery Friends! I’m off to finish up 80 or so hats and some other bicycle gear goodness for a show that is LESS THAN A FREEKIN’ MONTH AWAY!!! #panicattack

Hi Robyn!

I am so happy you are loving High Society! It is my debut collection with Anthology, and we are pretty excited about it! I would love to invite you to join the flickr pool I’ve just created and share all your high society creations!

Happy Sewing!

What a great playlist! Looks a lot like mine (the best of the best) and gave me some inspiration on other artists to add to my list to listen to tomorrow while I create. I found you through Luci’s site, DuhBe, and when I saw my two favorite items together, Coffee and Cotton, I just had to check it out. I am so glad I did. Nothing is more exciting than finding creative souls sharing their fun and inspiring work! Wonderful site!
