Feline Friday 6-6-14
My SIL rang me in the morning - thought maybe she left her reading glasses again. NOPE, she wanted me to tip toe to my door with camera to capture a 'moment'. I've had skunk, snake, possum, racoon, and even a deer once on my porch - so didn't know what to expect. These two hardly ever get close, so this was a Kodak Moment.
I thought I would tackle that apple basket full of scrap and cut-offs muslin. Yes, that is a huge pile and I didn't even dump it all - just crammed in there. So some pressing and cutting for some useable sizes for a few leader/ender projects going. I need 3", 2.5", 2", and 1.5" for various things. Any long strips will get trimmed to size and left in the length and put on hangers - might need them down the line.
I took a break, yup they are still there! My Bella, you are getting pudgy!!
The 2" squares are going in the tote for the Lozenge blocks. I am half way there with these. The 3" squares are for a HST project - using up those scrap triangles in a box.
And the 2.5" squares are getting chained right thru the machine as I cut them. My barrel was full AGAIN, so another postage stamp quilt is in the works.
This is one of those distractions I was talking about - off and running with something when I should be working on something else. But I wanted to use up that cone of thread to start with a fresh one on my weekend project. I keep my empty cones and spools as a resource for inventory to order for the next year.
I got thru about a third of that basket, worked up three 20" postage stamp blocks, and have plenty of pre-cuts to work with for a while - so picked up and took another peek. Gosh, to have a cats life!! By the way, that notch out of my indoor/outdoor carpet - the deer that was on my porch decided this was good 'grazing'. A chase with the broom and she hasn't been back.
