May For Me - Day 3


Yesterday I spent sharing my space with my SIL. She is becoming more confident and can work on her own. She finished up her pot holders - a dozen or so of each - cupcakes and pot pinchers.


And I was able to start assembling all those string blocks. For those that asked, this is the layout chosen. I am going to put thin black sashing inbetween to keep the star pattern - other wise they turn into another whole new look.

Once we did a little clean up - we started to play with prepping some pincushions - some simple easy work, to fill in the afternoon.


BINGO CALL WORDS

N - SUNFLOWER(S) *NOT SUN OR FLOWER*
N - TRAIN(S)
I - MATOR
O - LIZARD(S)
O - RAIN *JUST RAIN*

Remember we all have different lists, so check in with Marcia, Tonya, and Snoodles for their words as well as what they may share for May For Me.

Today, my ME time is going shopping - away from the computer. My SIL and I need to pick up a few supplies for some other projects planned, a few groceries, and a stop at the LQS for a wide quilt backing and king batt (maybe even some wonderful new Sulky Thread).

CLOSING THOUGHT

  16. The potholders are cute and I love the string quilt. I can't wait until the other projects are done so I can dive into my own pile of strings and start on something just as great.
