Feline Friday & Sidling
Since Halloween, here in the NorEast it has gotten cold and dreary. All one can do is catch a nap where one can. I prefer to find some place a little more comfortable, but these two will drop off most anywhere. I know, usually Moe is in the box, but Bella claimed this one first.
I have been sidling with my sewing and stitching all week. I have been slowly cleaning, throwing out, and winterizing around the house. On Sunday I did get a start on my NewFO project.
On Monday my Mom gave me a box of solid homespun scraps from an old railfence kit she pulled to finish up. New scraps - yes just had to play with them. I pulled my baggy of left over solid lites JR strips that need using up.
In between some vacumming and dusting, I put these little log cabins together.
Tuesday I got me some baby cudding time and a nice quiet visit with my daughter as the boys were in school. When I got home (and caught a nap with the fur balls) I pulled the fabrics for the Sew Sweet Simplicity QAL. Button is on the side bar - must sign up (free) to receive the blocks.
These are some left over FQs from a quilt along last year. One of them is this lovely floral panel that I can get 4 centers from as I didn't want to applique or stitch the center. I plan on just a 4 block quilt with 2 pillows - or however those few FQs will stretch.
Wednesday was a day of a lot of errands, mail runs, UPS drop off, groceries - lots of car time. But I wanted to get a start on my Let's Book It project. She used the freezer paper and glue baste method - neither of my favorite methods, but sometimes you have to work techniques so I went with the flow. I am starting with the house section and may change up to a smaller version rather than the whole original pattern.
Thursday was totally a wash as busy with the shop and sewing class. And I cleaned windows and put up the winterize plastic, washed curtains and hung the insulated drapes.
Today I hope to get some sewing time to put together my Christmas Row Quilt. The kitchen floor needs mopping and I have some new table clothes for the dining and kitchen tables - an easier house chore day. Oh, I need to put together my supplies for a Quilt Guild Saturday Class - making a purse from a tie.
