Oh Dear Me--I do believe I have been on a Christmas Marthon for the last couple of weeks--didn't even realize it till I came up for air today!!!!!
Yesterday--my big plan was to redo the block I needed to do for the presents paper piecing quilt top I was doing--here is the new look==
And of course--could the block be an outside one --NONONO--was in the very middle--but I am a good sister and i redid it--I does look much better--here's a pile of the leftover fabric scraps from just this one block?????
now tell me paper piecing is fun==
she really liked the pattern and the next thing I knew she was picking out the fabrics--SO--I sat down at the sewing machine at 1:30 and I paper pieced til after 7pm with only one break--(ice cream was shouting my name from the kitchen--so) and I did get the top finished to this--
let me tell you--there was not as much waste on this one--the pattern gave some fabric cut charts--and of course it was smaller--I mean alot SMALLER--some of the tiny corner pieces only took 3-4 stitches on the machine--no joking--the upsetting part is that all my seams on the back of the paper pattern were even and right on the lines--but yet some of the fabric pieces on the front are crooked--can anyone tell me WHY?????
Today I had to clean up the apartment--could not stand all the threads and tiny piecies of paper everywhere--cleaned the bathroom and so on--then my friend Ann came and we visited a while and went to the store--after lunch is was done to the laundry room--had been trying all weekend to get in there,but for some reason--everyone else wanted it too!!!!
Once that was done and taken care of--I finished the borders on the two quilts and here they are in all there GLORY--
And this one is ready to be quilted one of these days and my cat needs his face put on him -- and the outter border was one with a one direction in it--I was sooo careful in sewing it in==but me got one upside down and had to take it out and redo it!!!!
Later I cleaned out my fabric closet some and regrouped some of the new fabrics I have gotten in--then worked on organizing all my boms and seeing which ones I might need to check on to see if I have all the newest blocks--boy being two months behind is not going to be fun--and then there is the swaps I am not in and I want to do FALL--SOOO I WON'T BE BORED ANY TIME SOON!!!!!
TAKE CARE HAVE SOME FUN TODAY--HUGS,JUST,DI
