You know what you need after a tough deadline? A nice, easy, poofy project. I dreamed of making the lap duvet from purl soho, and all the necessary fabrics sat around for a couple of months, just waiting for me to stop writing, spread out the material, and cut things and pin things.
So, one night, a few days after I handed in my report, I dragged myself off the couch, thinking, "you promised yourself you'd do this. TV is not more fun. Go do it." Just the kind of attitude to have for a nice, relaxing project.
It's just 42" x 60" and made out of Nano Iro double gauze, which is wonderfully soft. And expensive. This is not a cheap project. But this fabric seemed made for my family room.
And, despite the kneeling on the floor for two nights cutting and pinning, and the three days of deciding which color thread to use to tack it together (beige in the end), it was, in fact, relaxing.
*Of course, if I didn't take the break, I wouldn't need to work crazy hours for the next deadline. Ha.
