After pulling aside some fabric that she mentioned liking to gift to her, I listed some in my ETSY shop. After all, de-stashing some fabric was one of my goals this year, and so far, it has gone quite well, with anywhere from 2-5 fabrics finding new homes each month. Whatever did we do before the Internet??
Quilty Orphan Adoption Event this coming weekend. Last March I was able to send out 5 other projects to new homes, and while this doesn't clear a ton of space in my sewing room, it does make me feel better about that ridiculously long list of UFOs I catalogued in January.
|One of the "orphans" I'm putting in the Quilty Orphan Adoption Event. I learned after starting this that I don't much enjoy paper piecing. I'm listing 2 paper piecing minis and one foundation pieced project.|
I selected, cut and washed the backing for the quilt I pieced last weekend. The plan is to pin baste it tomorrow and attempt to machine quilt it this week. Those of you who know me know that I am a hand quilter, but I don't want this quilt to be added to my To Be Quilted pile. Besides, I need to learn how to machine quilt, and the only way to learn is to do it, right?
I cut into a small mountain of scraps, clearing my cutting mat of the clutter that had been encroaching upon it from all sides, yielding 61 precut scraps for the scrap bins.
|Doesn't look like much, but there are 61 squares in those piles, everything from 1.5" to 5"|
Add to that the floors I swept and mopped, the loads of laundry I did, the dishes I washed, the meals I prepared, and I'm surprised I'm still standing. Time to go finish my book and drift off to sleep.
