Three things to be happy about:
(2) trail mix
(3) a child's enjoyment of simple things
They're doing some work on my street, digging and pounding and jack-hammering. My neighbors' 3 year old son is just fascinated with it all - he's a truck man! Me... I look forward to them finishing so I can park in front of my house again!
Still sewing away at it; I want to finish this before I pick up something else.
Besides, I have to show more progress on it at the guild meeting this Saturday!
Among the sewing I still need to do - I'm combining the blue and green sashing strips that I pieced on phone book pages into longer strips, then cutting them down into usable 12-1/2" pieces.
Little by slowly, but it's progress!
When I cut a strip I have to move the ruler left or right to get a piece that's long enough to have a decent seam allowance after cutting.
So, that means unsewing tiny bits and recombining pieces to get what I need. Some of the strings I used were a bit narrow, but the good news is I included a lot of 2" pieces so I have plenty of wiggle room!
I was looking at some of the strings I used in these sashing strips; at one point I wasn't too sure about the other colors I let creep in amongst the blue and green ...
But looking at it now, I think I made a good decision.
All those reds and yellows and golds add a lot of texture to the sashing, without overpowing the quilt.
The SNS cornerstones give it light, and help pull the sashing together.
That's it for now, have a great Wednesday. Don't tell anyone but I have to get started on my taxes! Sew forth and sew on...
