I really love Fridays! This year I seem to have scheduled myself so I that I'm off at work early on Friday morning and I can get back home by about 1:00 and nothing else is scheduled for the rest of the day! This means I can sew or take Choco for a long walk or sew or clean the house or sew. SEW, you know what I did yesterday!
I've been working on Tonya's class' quilt and though I'm getting a lot made I still don't know what it is. I just kept making letters yesterday and putting them together into phrases. I need to get some direction but I'm still just making odd blocks and shapes.
And look at the state of the sewing room! Making letters just meant turning my scrap and string tub upside down and grabbing from there. You'd think with all the letters I made that I wouldn't have so many scraps to put back in the tub but they still occupy the full capacity of the tub (I guess that means I'd squeezed them in before). Tetsu took one look at the room and said,
"What are you doing in here? How many quilts are you working on at one time? Three? (He could see one on the wall, one on the floor and another arranged on the bed.)
"Umm. Actually four. There's another one under that box."
I really think I aimed too high this month. I've got to get the quilt under the box back into action but that will just add to the confusion. But it's so much fun and I guess everyone knows I have a hard time concentrating on one thing!
And look what someone just handed me yesterday when I was at the kindergarten! A bolt of light green cotton fabric! I can't think of a thing that I'm going to do with it but would I be crazy enough to turn down free fabric! Nope. There is a lot of yardage there for little 'ol me and I have a feeling that it may outlive me. Either that or all my quilt backings may be light green for the next few years. (But that's no fun is it!)
