I am back to working on projects this week and haven't done any 'runnin' around--(though the thrift store did text me they are having another sale this week???????????????????)
I got the next '2' blocks done for the block of the month from Jenny--
These are really small--think the finished size is under 4 inches--yesterday the Jelly roll I ordered for these blocks came in--I had started with a charm pack--but need more than 5 inches for the sides of the squares so decided to order a jelly roll when I found it on sale--and yes--I will have lots left over--but then again--I am already working on a second project using these fabrics--this one---
And here is the 3rd block for April from "the book"
a paper pieced bird--he just needs an eye embroidered on him and the paper backing removed--
And here is what I am working on right now for my 'leaders n enders' work--I got the strips done awhile ago from left over project and now as I need a ender--I sew them together--have no idea how many I will have when finished???
And here is the Harmony top--hand piecing all done--I did work ahead on this one --I needed some slow stitching 'quiet' work there for awhile--
and I have the binding made for this one--just need to get it 'layered'!
And here is where I am on this month's OMG project--
All my baskets are in a row!!!! well -- 5 rows really!! I am so glad that I had figured out the layout and taken a picture when I finished these blocks last year--today I am cutting out the pieces for the border--This pattern for putting it together has been challenging as in the pattern for directions--I only got the even numbered pages--have no clue why I did not get the odd numbered pages???? This was a pattern and I am pretty sure I also bought the layer cake for the corner pieces on a 'Shop Hop' back in 2005- 2007 --so it has brought back some fun memories of those Shop Hop days--and I took photos of all 3 years trips so had to get that photo album, out yesterday and did some more remembering--!!!
Well the sewing machine is calling me--and I have alot of prep cutting first--so guess I better get going!!
Funny side note here--
I have not done laundry on a Monday in a while now--
it is either Tues or Wed--it seems--funny how things can change so suddenly sometimes!!
TAKE CARE AND KNOW THAT I AM THINKING OF YOU--
LUV AND HUGS, DI
