I think my running theme for Sunday posts is going to be projects I'd like to sew someday. I've got such a long list in addition to quilt books with so many pages flagged. I have plenty of ambitious goals to keep me busy for quite some time.
High up on the list would definitely be a Hawaiian appliqué quilt. I've seen some beautiful examples of these quilts in museum exhibitions, but I would love to craft one up myself. Alas, all the Hawaiian appliqué classes were full by the time I committed to going to the International Quilt Festival in Houston a couple of weeks ago. However, I did pick up this great book of cushion patterns while I was perusing the aisles and aisles of vendors: Poakalani: Hawaiian Quilt Cushion Patterns & Designs.
This should at least keep me entertained long enough to keep me from diving into a queen-sized version that will take forever!
In other news, today marks five years at my day job. On some days, the idea of leaving it behind for craftier pursuits is quite enticing. I don't have any plans of quitting today . . . ask me again tomorrow, though. Mondays can go either way.
