Three things to be happy about:
(1) a little bit more
(2) happy accidents
(3) the color purple
I had more purples than I realized, but they were all in the medium and dark range. I did make a quick trip to JoAnn's for lighter purples, so there goes my resolve to shop from stash!
They're having a 50% sale right now, so that's a win win.
Bagged and tagged.
Ready to go when you are, Bonnie!
I really wish I had more of this pretty piece, though. Someone gifted it to me in a bag of scraps.
Meanwhile as I wait for the first mystery clue, in addition to the hourglass blocks I'm cutting fabrics to make a granny square quilt, using my Accuquilt 2-1/2" square die.
I want to use up as many of the less-than-half-yard pieces as possible, to move them out of my stash and into a quilt.
Some members of my guild are hand piecing this block and they seem to work up pretty fast! Cynthia is using African fabrics with black sashing; this combination really makes the block pop.
As for me, I'll be doing mine by machine - nothing like instant gratification!
Well, that's it for now. I'm going out with a neighbor to vote this morning, go ahead and get that out of the way! Everybody have a great day, finish something old, start something new, sew forth and sew on...
