Long Weekend Over


I had a 'stay at home' holiday weekend as the shop was open (and everyone else was away) - although we had no one stop by.  I spent most of it cleaning and clearing out the bathroom as I had a plumber coming on Tuesday - so my Tuesday was a stay at home, too.  Since I got a late start I did the Slow Stitching Sunday on Monday.  The large stitch goes so fast, so this Let's Book It project just might get completed in time - although you don't have to have a finish.


I worked on the chambry and denim scraps from my clear-out space.  Half way there with these.


Yeah, this was hiding under those blocks.  I found this in my 'specialty' drawer.  Little scraps of whimsy and interest that are too special to tuck in with the other scrap storage.  The are my applique for...........


this quilt.  Yes, leave me home alone and not having to share my work space and I just go to town!  The green and yellow gingham, plaids, and stripes log cabin blocks got worked into a flimsy.  I'm hoping to get this one finished up on the next weekend.


And the bow ties got sewn together.  I would love to make another round on this, but there is not enough scraps.  SO - borders.  Yeah, I hate borders, but that's the plan.

This week I will be working on the last few star plaid blocks so that will be a flimsy.  Then the left over scraps from all of these projects can be put away or cut down into my fabric food chain - a good start to that clean up project.

Hope you had a lovely Holiday weekend and head into a great week.
Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  7. You certainly did get a bunch accomplished and with the rain we are expecting in the coming days I'm guessing that you will get more done.
