Oops..........thought about writing my post over the weekend...and then forgot. Today was the last day of class for the week - YEAH!!!!!!!! Of course I then started my weekend by having a crown come off for the second time out here. Sigh..........bridge or implant is on the horizon for me to take care of it.
On the good side though I have managed to get some sewing done this week. Been putzing around with a possible rug mug (all right maybe more of a snack mat as Susan would say...lol). Still thinking about how to quilt it because it is 7" tall by 12" wide. Still need to get one more mug rug made by I haven't made up my mind on what i'm gonna use for it.
I also made up over 200 HST's using up cut-off triangles from the wedding quilt I made last year. To make them I just laid the triangles onto strips of leftover cream tonal fabrics from the same quilt, sewed the diagonal seam and then trimmed to size. All total, I now have over 200 that are 3.5" unfinished and over 100 that are 2.5" unfinished.
And am still trying to decide what blocks to make with them. I figure there will be at least 2 and probably 3 quilts to come from these because all the patterns I'm tossing around need an additional color with them.
I wanted to use scraps with them, but am not finding big enough scraps to work......may go digging into my FQ's to find something that will work.
Patterns I'm considering include the two blocks here among others. Both need additional colors, but I still want a scrappy look.....decisions, decisions. Time for stash diving.....
I also pulled fabrics for two quilts (a queen and a throw) for a friend who asked me about them. Another mutual friend is supposed to pay, but haven't heard back on price. Total yardage (front and backing) was just over 30 yds for the two quilts and backing has also been pulled for them. Am hoping price is ok 'cause I could use the money.
Will be sewing this weekend on Christmas gifts if I can get them cut out....and that means I need to find the pj pattern I need for pj pants........wonder where I packed that....... Also have a commissioned fleece hood/scarf combo to get cut otu and made up. Lots to keep me busy!
