I spent the day over at Jane's yesterday sewing. She's working on a gorgeous '30s quilt top made from triangles. She cut these triangles at our cutting day a couple of months ago, and I rescued her scraps from the trash can at the end of the day - and began the Jane's Crumbs quilt blocks! Her collection of '30s fabrics dates back probably 20 years. There are some awesome pieces in there! It's a beauty!
I decided to procrastinate one more day on cutting the Irish chain, and pulled out some simple applique projects instead. This one is an easy one and should be fun to work on when I need a break from sewing. This is as far as I got yesterday on prepping this block. And, naturally, I photoed it going the wrong direction! The pattern is "The Bundling Board," Primitive Pieces by Lynda. Only four blocks, so it should needleturn quickly.
I'm going to get off the computer and spend an hour picking up around the house and start laundry. I'd rather be stitching, but if I devote an uninterrupted hour, I should get it all done. Then I'm going to start a pot of spaghetti sauce simmering, and then I start cutting! I'm looking forward to a day of piddling today.
~ Jane's DH who takes us to dinner after a sewing day, and ever so patiently listens to our quilty talk and girl chatter!
~ Although overwhelming at times, lots of projects to keep my mind stimulated!
~ Dreary, overcast skies today. I love this kind of weather!
~ Sleeping in until 7:00 this morning
~ Listening to Daisy's dreams. She's makes the funniest sounds!
