(1) remembering the coupons
(2) ignoring appearances
I have this pair of yellow shorts, I think they're made of cotton flannel but you can't prove it by me because they're so old the label has washed out. I think they're about 15-20 years old. The only drawback is they're so floppy, baggy, saggy and decrepit looking, I can only wear them inside the house. I really love those shorts because they feel so good on, who cares what they look like! Some of you know what I mean...
I went to Hancock's on Thursday to get a yard of Kona and decided to pick up a new bottle of Best Prest since I had only about an inch left in my old bottle, I really like that spray! I saw a large size refill, but it was $11.99 - sheesh! Well, I didn't have my coupons - forgot em as usual. The cashier knows me by now; she picked up a flyer from the counter and said "I'm not supposed to and you might make me lose my job, and if I do I'm coming after you, but let's see if we can use this coupon..." The coupon was for 40% off notions, but the starch wasn't a notion. Somehow she made it work, and it brought the price down to $7.19. Bless her!
Now, what does all that have to do with my crumb along project? Nuttin honey...
I made these three heart blocks that turned out really nice.
I had to laugh because I kept sewing the little flying geese units at the top together the wrong way - atop each other rather than side by side.
These star blocks are right cute too!
I'm going to make some with a smaller center - I want to use more than one round of border strips.
When I lay all my blocks out in a group they're starting to play really nicely together! I like the idea of combining plaids/homespuns with African fabrics, I'll explore that a bit more as I go along.
Well that's it for today, sew forth and sew on til later...
