Wow, it's been 6 days since I posted last!
I didn't mean to be gone so long.
I was planning on posting over the
for Scrap Basket Sunday.
But, there I was without my camera cord...
and who wants a post with no pictures?
But I have camera, cord and photos to share now!
My son took a little trip over to the coast and brought back
some salt water taffy for me!
It made my chores so much better...
salt water taffy does taste good with sewing binding.
Every time I think I am caught up with bindings and sleeves...
a quilt comes back from the LAQ.
It makes for good busy work while watching TV in the evening with the hubby.
But my fingers are getting pretty sore now.
My Scrap Basket Sunday results are here...
I couldn't resist the opportunity to dive into my scraps
and prepare for the "next" scrap project on
my list. I have always wanted to make this
quilt from Temecula Quilt Co.
So, pulling out some stash fabrics and doing a little bit of
cutting was nice to do. Now I have it ready to go.
When I am done with this one that is...
I am up to 42 blocks now. I skipped working on it
the week before, so this week I had to do double time
to catch up with my schedule.
I also have a little cheat sheet to use for cutting when you do it as
a weekly project... unfortunately I strayed from the plan...
and things just got confusing.
Note to self: do not, not use the cheat sheet.
I hope nobody remembers when I made a comment to not start a new project
before starting a new one...
because this week I seem to have started a couple new ones.
What was I thinking?
I should know myself better than that!
I needed a little bit of light sewing. Something that requires little thinking...
something I can handle in the morning when I'm still
not fully awake, but also light as in light when I am working with other
projects that are dark.
A friend of mine made this quilt as a shop sample and as much
as I liked it when I saw the pattern, and knew I liked the fabric...
it was even better to see it made up and in person.
But I think I am going to add a twist to it.
I made those tumbler/crumbler blocks out of
Comma also... so I was thinking of a way to combine the two.
I was kind of thinking of an outside border of crumblers.
One place I haven't been is at BOM Rehab.
I have decided to end my Rehab Mondays.
There are so many other things going on and
it will just be simpler for me.
I want to thank you for playing along in the Rehab with me.
I will be contacting you all so that I can send a little something to
you in appreciation of you inspiring me to
finish up my block of the month projects along with you!
