On my design wall (a.ka. louvered doors to my washer/dryer) is my newest Postage Stamp quilt using 2" squares. I have a few more rows ready to add and I probably need to make more. Once I get those on there will be a border of muslin and then a 2" scrappy square border followed by another muslin border. You all know how I love borders - so this one will be around for a few more play dates.
My thread order arrived (Connecting Thread sale) and notice they are tubing them differently. I just hope this doesn't cause a problem with my side spindle feed on my machine - and they don't stand to steady on my stand either. We shall see as my last 'piecing' color spool is just about out and I will be using the new spool.
And I had a 'duh' moment with my new lint rollers - must have these for working with scraps that leave threads every where as well as two furkids that shed non-stop. I removed the cover (same print) and set it down to do the next one. I looked - now didn't I just remove the cover? Well howdee!! Every sewing room needs a fancy sticky lint roller. Now I have to check next time if there are other patterns.
Speaking of scraps - I sent off my 5" cut downs and a box filled with my 3.5" and 2.5" squares is heading out to a new home. WHY?? Because I have not been able to keep up with them, used them in 20 plus projects, and I have some new bags of gifted scraps that need moving into my fabric food chain. Why stuff them into over flowing totes and barrels - clear out and start fresh. First clear was all the large items to either the drawers or totes.
And there were a lot of skinny strings. Some of these will get worked into my Grandpa's Stars, but I think some serious string block play needs to be had.
I found some pieces for my July 'Let's Book It' project and pulled some reds for RSC15. What was left will be cut down into my barrels thru out the week.
