Three things to be happy about:
(1) a bowl of Cheerios
(2) the pendulum on a clock
(3) a groundhog when you need one
I heard something on the radio yesterday that they couldn't find a "living, breathing" groundhog anywhere and they might have to substitute a stuffed one. It was probably a joke but really - can you imagine?? Somehow good ole Punxsutawney Phil made his appearance yet again!
Thanks everybody for your congratulatory comments, I was so happy to be a part of this month's Sew We Quilt banner! I took the quilt to the studio Monday, then around midnight I woke up and realized I had meant to attach earrings and forgot, eeeeeeek! Nobody but me will know the difference and it's not necessary to the design of the quilt, yet it is a little creative thing I wanted to do. The way that sistah's ears are sticking out, they need something hanging off em...
I haven't blogged for a couple days but I've been busy behind the scenes, tidying, cutting, sorting and just a little sewing.
I put labels on more of my non-stash containers so I won't have to do the pull-and-dig exercise when I'm looking for something...
small thing but it makes a difference!
I'm still cutting for x and + blocks, along with the other sized strips. This is really going to be a scrappy quilt, I'm cutting up lots of colors and patterns! To hurry the kitting up process along, I've started marking the pieces I'll use for the corners of the 3-1/2" squares, as I cut them...
I'm planning on a variety of lights and brights for those corners, each finished block needs eight of these.
I'll start making the kits after I've cut a lot more, for maximum variety. I'm thinking of a 7 x 8 arrangement, with whatever border size(s) I need to make a throw size. I've made four blocks, and they're turning out to be 8" unfinished (7-1/2" finished), so 56 blocks should be enough.
These envelopes will come in hand to hold the pieces for each block...
I was about to toss em, but I figure why not recycle at least once? The pieces will fit perfectly in there, I won't need to pin them together, and I don't need to actually see what's in the envelope before sewing. It's a good thing.
Well, laundry is calling me, I better answer! You all have a great day - sew forth and sew on
