Three things to be happy about:
(1) closing things out
(2) sunshine in winter
(3) many many colors
Hi everybody! I started not to do a post for today but then I thought - hey, this is the last day of the year!
Word Play book I'm using!
Chunky chunky chunky! I want to get the basics down before I get fancy with these, but boy are they chunky! My least fav to make so far are the angled letters - capital R, N, X and Z.
I can see lots more practice in my future!
Get out that leader-ender project!
This is definitely a project for leader-enders, all those little pieces you have to sew onto another little piece, one at a time! I'm working in a few stringy log-cabin blocks in between little bits.
Is there an assembly line way to do these, without getting confused??
I didn't choose the best fabric for this one, that design makes it iffy to see what the letter actually is.
The one challenge I'm having with following the book's instructions is that - for me - I'd like to have seen more specific suggestions about the length to cut the pieces, since I'm learning these flat out. As I get more practice I'll be able to do my own thing, but as a learner I think you need more hand-holding.
So that's what I've been up to ... I awoke in the wee hours this morning and sewed a bit on my spinning star blocks for this project.
Used my last bobbin, so I thought I may as well do a whole bunch ... nothing like winding bobbins with one eye closed, I tell ya!
That's it for now, today my friend Charlene I out will venture out to the Honey Baked Ham store in search of ham bones!
I hope they have some left, I want one to cook with my black-eyed peas for tomorrow - gotta have those black-eyed peas on New Year's day! Sew forth and sew on til later...
