Friday Night Sew-In - January Results
Will someone please straighten me out!!
It was another wonderful evening sewing with my friends from around the world. It may not have been in person but it definitely was in spirit! Orca Bay is coming together slowly but surely. I thought I would have got a lot more of it pieced together but it is definitely slow going. I am trying to be careful but I am still losing some of my points - I don't mind if you don't mind!! I have some other blocks started too, they are in various stages of construction and they are sitting on my ironing table - just waiting their turn to get up on the design wall. I am a little late posting but I just could not find the time yesterday. That's me - a day late and dollar short - what can I say! Hop on over to Crafty Vegas Mom to check out what other participants worked on.
We were supposed to visit our son yesterday but schedules got rearranged and we will see him in the next day or two instead. So, what is a girl to do? I loaded up the car with a ton of fabric and visited my sister Cheryl in Toronto. She purchased one of those new-fangled cutters and we cut enough scrappy 2.5" squares and 2.5" hst parts to make a quilt for my nephew Norman...and then some! His quilt is going to be red, blue and neutral so those are the colours I focused on cutting.
Don't let my poor pictures fool you, those bins are 4.5" tall and there are thousands of pieces in them. I know that for sure because there are over 1000 neutral hsts alone. If I had not had the opportunity to have my sister cut most of the fabric for me (I mostly ironed) then this would have taken me many hours and probably days to cut. After all that excitement and the drive home last night I was just too tired to do anything but unload the car and read for a bit before going to sleep.
