Oh, shoot -- I forgot to get a picture of the under-the-desk drawer situation. Something to look forward to tomorrow!
More great classes yesterday on using pre-cuts and scraps. I've got my share of pre-cuts, and I need to use them up! The class (hosted by The Hobby Horse) runs until June, and if you didn't sign up, I think you missed the boat. The discussions we've had so far have made me WANT to use these things up, and I'm getting ideas on what to do with the pre-cuts. So this is what I'm tackling during the class.
|My box of pre-cuts|
This project box is filled with pre-cuts from Tim Holtz. I have three small bundles of squares; however, I have lost one, or there was one square missing; I seem to have 29, not 30. I have two small jelly rolls for a total of 36 strips (or something like that), a Fat Quarter bundle of about a dozen fabrics, and some yardage. My goal for this sew-along is to get that used up!
This is what one project looks like.

However, I'm sad to say there's likely enough fabric in the box to make three, if not FOUR, quilts. Then I have one more jelly in blues and greens that I want to use up during the sew-along.
|The next jelly roll to use up!|
And I have three of these smaller jelly rolls in my favorite color, and I also want to use those during this sew-along.

I've got 40 minutes left on my audiobook, so I may listen while I walk the dogs so that I'm done. Another good read, but I might take a break for a week from this series. I don't usually read a series back to back, but these stories are so different from each other that it's doable.
And here's the last day of QUILTsocial. I just LOVE the final project!!! I don't see the final day on the website, so this may be a repeat of what I posted yesterday.
And don't forget that it's Virtual Retreat weekend, so from NOON to day until whenever, we're online sewing. And while I may not get as much done as if I were sewing myself, it's a great chance to share ideas and realize you are NOT alone in anything that goes on in your life! We share the joys and the sorrows, and it's great therapy!
And here's the link to Sunday, November 27, starting at NOON.
