I interrupt my insane day to bring you an update on Celtic Solstice!!!!!
I am behind. No excuses (well Christmas is coming and customers want their quilts and a store wants a queen sized sample) but other than that - NO EXCUSES!!!!
Remember - I am piecing the components as enders and leaders UNTIL my Christmas crunch is over.
|So - from part one - this is still waiting to be sewn|
|BUT the stack on the left is BIGGER than it was this time last week. Still need to cut some (OK - MOST) of the orange/blue units|
I decided to take an afternoon interlude (in light of the looming cut off deadline to post the blog) and get SOMETHING done this week.................
|200 background squares - CUT|
|The green rectangles - CUT|
|The yellow squares - CUT|
Thank goodness that did NOT take a lot of time to cut.
|And LOOK - ONE CHEVRON IS SEWN and trimmed. Only 99 more to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!|
Now there is the issue of those little cut off triangles. Bonnie mentioned it and she is tossing them. ACK!!!!! I can't do that even though I (like Bonnie) have BOXES of those darn little things.
|My little cut-offs|
|Here are my little cut-offs from East Street - I changed the colours around last year. ALL those cut-offs are sewn together, trimmed and are now four patches. I have yet to decide what I am going to do with them.|
Am I crazy????? Oh yes - because look - these are from cut-offs from another project. Same size as above.
One must be careful what one wishes for. While it is nice to share this project with all of you, it is more fun to share with your real friends!!!!! And this year - there are more and more people that I know participating in Celtic Solstice. I told them if they got pictures to me by 4 PM - that I would post them. I got Mary's. She is DONE!!!! DRAT - going to have to sew my eyes out to catch up to her!!!!
|Mary's Part One - DONE|
|Mary's Part Two - DONE (I could have used her picture and said it was mine!!!! - But I am honest!)|
I know that Jan has jumped on board and is working like mad to get hers up to date. Anne is done part one and working on part two, Linda is working on both parts? She may be done one of them by now. I think that is it. Well I had better get these last customer quilts out the door so I can stay in their league!!!!!
On that note - I am out of here - got loads to do.
Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!
