A Day to Play


After a rush on some pattern testing (that quilt is ready for quilting) and before I dive back into the tiny bear foot print blocks, I need a day to play.  My 2.5" barrel was just stuffed full and I knocked it off the shelf trying to cram more into it.  So it needs a day right along with me.


First I had to remove a fabric holder so I could get that backing cut to size and moved out of the way - for tomorrows day of play.  He was actually more interested in the tape measure to play with rather than the job of holding down fabric.


I'll add to a leader/ender project to move that along a little more, plus I am pulling out all the browns because I saw .......


this over at Beth's on her Monday Making.  Oh, I love the movement of this and the browns make it so rich.  I have a LOT of browns.  In the barrel, in a basket, in a tote, on the shelf.  I need to play with brown - and this block.


So I need to press, cut, sew, and enjoy the day.

I am thankful for a day of play,
Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  1. I can see that block in other combinations, and your helper, they have to be right in with the fun/measuring, pin finding. I have to hide my pins as Boris has been known to pull one out of a design board when it was on the floor.

  2. That fabric holder doesn't look like he's going to move easy, he has the look, good luck.

  4. Sounds like such a lovely day Sharon! I love days to play where I have no commitments, just stitching on whatever takes my fancy. And that rich brown block definitely takes my fancy!
