YES - there is NO STOPPING me. I got the fever!!!!!!!
Now - I DO NOT want more scraps - I really want to deal with those that I have, although I do have to say that things seem to be somewhat under control. As I was working on those two current projects - I decided that there were more scraps upstairs in the living room. There were a few bags of scraps left in the members boutique after the quilt show. That means that those bags had been picked over by MANY people. At this point - no one wants them????
I was going to take them to the guild for a member to pick up (for free), but I am a member so I am picking them up. I really want things to go to people who will take care of them - not just add to their mess.
So here is the box of stuff that was sitting there.
|Box of scraps|
|Found a three and a half meter piece which will be PERFECT as a backing for the quilts that I am making for community projects|
|Half square triangles - already made - I pressed them and put them in my half square triangle box|
There were still scraps left and I have put them with the kit making stuff - I will deal with them as I get to that box. I am working on three kits right now and I just can't process it all quick enough.
I do have pictures of the homes of all that stuff above. However I have to say that I am having loads of trouble with pictures and my computer. I am wondering if the card reader is going???? Well - changed the card and that helped somewhat, but went to load the pictures and the computer froze so - it was a question of a blog with some of the pictures or no blog. I'll post the rest later.
Speaking of scraps - Karen was busy putting a back together this past Monday. In order to use up her scraps (yes - we feed off each other) - Karen was making a backing using that 1600 strip method.
She first sewed a small square between each of the 80 or so strips. There are MANY MANY ways of doing this and all kinds of info on the web if you Google it.
|Now where are the ends so she can do step two??????|
|ACK - help!!!!!!!!!!!!!|
I have said it before and I'll say it again - I really don't care much what I make or sew - as long as I am making or sewing something. It is fun, it is entertaining and for the most part (at least for me) - it is the process of making that is fun, I don't so much care about the end product. Although my quilts are precious to me, and I enjoy snuggling up in them - the making of them is my pleasure.
Daphne had brought in some scraps from her stash (and yes - I think I acquired a couple of bigger pieces so I could use for the backs of those community projects quilts). Anyway - there was this bib panel in amongst her stuff.
Judy took that panel and is making some bibs.
|I think it is a TAD SMALL for her!!!!!|
|She finished the edge of the bib off with a nice decorative stitch on the machine. SUPER idea!!!!!|
As usual - I leave so much unsaid and so many pictures unpublished. I am going to try (seriously try) to get myself and my pictures and all my other possessions organized. Who knew this was going to be a life-long job????? Seriously - it just seems that when you clear a space out - well then I move something from deep storage into that space and then I have to deal with that!!!! But serious progress is being made. There isn't much left in deep dark storage. Not much at all - if anything.
And the clothes - well good thing one does go through the clothes. I was looking through that pile of short hang stuff and OH MY GOD - here are my TWO BEST CYCLING jackets in there. I thought they were older running jackets, but NO - I guess I hung up those jackets in the inside closet, not the outer wear closet on the main floor. Well I rescued them and filled yet another plastic bag with clothes.
Like I said - pictures tomorrow.
Have a SUPER AWESOME day - despite the icky snowy icy outdoors. I have a sewing day planned and I can't wait to get started.
