Give-aways and fabrics to friends - that's a good thing!
Some fabric arrived that was expected. Lily & Will by Anne Sutton at Bunnyhill Designs and Pom Pom de Paris by French General.
I did manage to cut a few yards for backgrounds for my appliqued basket blocks but not counting that yet. I looked at the pattern, though, and I thought that total yardage would have been a lot more. Oh, well, it'll get reported as a bust when it's all cut, which will be a while. I'm not cutting much ahead of where I'm working because I'm only prepping 20 blocks at a time.
I'm teaching a friend to needle turn applique. It's been fun working with her, an hour here and an hour there. Saying techniques out loud refresh and reinforce them for me. I love showing someone how needle turn. I love seeing that "light bulb" moment when it clicks. Yes, you can see it.
Good news - 60 basket blocks done. A lot more to go. Eating this elephant one bite at a time!
This might be my last weekend off for a while, so I've been cleaning and prepping blocks and cooking to freeze meals. Penny has taken to camping out in the kitchen. Never know when Mommy will "accidentally" drop something!
