Things just happened yesterday and I couldn't get to the computer to update the blog - even though I had uploaded the pictures. It happens!
This is how I spent my Friday at work. I have cuts of all those vibrant prints from Northcott's ColorWorks concepts. Next up was to start slicing and dicing them.
|Start by cutting strips|
|Then cutting squares|
|Then more squares|
|And even more squares|
|One block DONE!!!!|
|Many blocks done|
Yes - I know it looks like a wild mess at this point, but trust me - there is a plan. Can you guess what I'm making? Even I don't know what the end result will look like - I'm just making it up as I go along. But it will be fun. I made even more progress on it yesterday and over the weekend. I HAVE to get this project done soon as the deadline is looming and I still have a quilt for the booth display and well - let's just say that the next month is going to be jam packed!!!! Thank goodness for that Prioritize - Focus - Win strategy which is working very nicely this week.
Northcott has also put together a challenge using some five inch squares. I'll provide you with more details in another post. I thought it would be fun to try the challenge myself and rather than fire up the computer and use EQ7, nope - I decided that trying to mull over the ideas on paper would be a good way to start.
|ACK - too many numbers|
Not only do I sew at work, but I construct furniture too! I built a small couch the other day. And I'm loving it in the office. Now I have a desk, two chairs, a couch and a sewing machine. What more could someone want. I think asking for a bed would be going too far and the couch is too small to sleep on! No time for sleeping anyway! But there is lots of seating to have a party!

Of course - I can't reveal all the details. Oh no! But let's just say there is always fun and games happening.
On that note - I'm off to brave the cold weather. It appears that winter has finally struck. We've been so lucky so far.
Have a great day!!!!
