What a WEEK! I feel like I went non-stop every single one of the past seven days! It amazes me, actually, that I was able to get the five solid fifteen minutes of sewing in that I did . . .
Friday ... I think I was so darn tired by the time I got home Friday and got dinner ready, I didn't care about anything else. LOL! Anyway, I need to find something different to work on -- I'm getting tired of seeing, "My Orange Crush" on post-it notes!
My stash report isn't all that original, either . . .
The intake is the purple fabric I purchased to finish up (what else?) MOC. Linking up to Patchwork Times!
Yesterday I headed out for our Stitchers Etc. group -- we had our bi-monthly stitch-in. Wanna take a guess at what I brought with me? I'll give you three and the first two don't count!
Yup -- purple fabric for MOC -- got all the cutting done for my horizontal strips, plus got them folded and pressed *and* I got all the binding cut and those strips folded, pressed and ready! Whoohoo! I guess another week or so of MOC in the 15 Minutes report! It's nice to know that when I get serious about something, it's full-speed-ahead.
I also tried my hand at something new. One of our group does lovely crochet work (actually, several of our ladies do lovely crochet or knitting) and agreed to help me learn some basics. We started with cotton yarn and a size "I" crochet needle . . .
And I have a *finished* project--a cotton wash cloth (or a little bitty baby blanket)! I'm rather proud, I have to say. Ashley was a great and *very* patient teacher. My homework is to make a second one, making sure (this time) that my rows stay consistent. Ha!
So I'm set up for about an hour or two of hard sewing this afternoon (getting those rows stitched together) and then I plan to take it real s l o w and work on the hand stitching aspect of getting those rows finished! I'm really looking forward to that part of my afternoon/evening. Are you doing any hand-stitching? You ought to mosey on over to Kathy's Quilts!
Have a peace-filled Sunday!
