Productive Procrastination

It's that kind of productivity that gets the bathroom clean when one has a paper to write. Useful, but something to wonder at. Luckily, my current "must do" project is delightful (a big drawing) and the procrastination distraction has become anything sewing related.

Some careful shopping in the Ikea "As-Is" section as well as a thrift store 50 cent bin have yielded several baby items that can be adorned with colour. Fun! My godbaby-to-be has a great many older cousins whose mum has bequeathed all their outgrown clothing to the expected one. This makes some of my creative actions seem slightly less than necessary, but it doesn't stop me. So far, the adorned-with-colour collection includes 4 bibs and the above onesie.

Much progress has been achiebved on the quilt for the baby too. The back is complete. I used a half of a cute birdie tea towel as one panel, for my Galiano Island farm theme.

The front has some amazing Scarlet Fig lamb fabric by Laurie Wisbrun as well as the trees and brown lattice. All I have to do is sew on the sashing (fudge brown) and get to quilting!
