Whoop it up Friday
Since I was hunting for fabrics to play with Bow Tie blocks, I processed two more grocery bags of scraps into the fabric food chain. I know I could have just gone into my barrels for stuff already cut, but I am seriously trying to tackle all those gifted scraps.
I got forty 4.5" Ties made and I know there will be a lot more to come, but this was a good afternoon of play after all the sorting, pressing, and cut-down. And I did accomplish my block for the month.
The last two poodles were finished and I hope that in April I will have time to put this into a flimsy. I have a lot of bookings thru April, so my sewing may slow down.
I saw SARAH mention pulling all her HSTs and finding a project to use them up. I have these all over the place! I use to be very good at making them finished and trimmed, then put into a container by the size - I dig thru them and use them here and there and then got a little sloppy in keeping them in order. So I pulled one of the totes and may play with these to finish out the month.
They are talking about us getting into the 50's this weekend - we shall see. I am grateful that our snow has had a chance melt off slowly, but now we are into serious MUD season around here. The woodchuck has come out of hibernation as well as Sir Stinks Alot - skunk. Even a racoon has been raiding the bird feeders at night, so they are being taken in now. Maybe Spring has arrived?
I will be taking time off for the Easter Holiday, so blessings to all .
