Yesterday (Sunday) I dreaded getting up for work. How I wished I could sleep in. It was day three of three of work. Sunday AM’s I most love to sleep in, read the paper, make a big breakfast. Love it.
Got up, went to work, with my co-workers help realized, duh…I wasn’t on the schedule. “Would you like to stay and be our unit secretary?” Nope! Went for breakfst at the Frontier, a must-experience restauraunt across from the University. Formulating lists of must do’s around the house today (laundry, cat hair clean up, clean the bathroom, etc. etc.) I decided to hell with it! I’m sewing!
Unpacked my machine two weeks ago. Hadn’t touched it in months. Hello beautiful! Pulled out a quilt top I pieced last summer. quilted and bound it. Made a small quilt from batik scraps. It felt so refreshing!
Project TWO: Original pattern uses charm squeares, pre-cut 5″ squares of fabric that oordinate and are pre-packaged. I made my own from stash. Original pattern pic is alos very traditioal. This version, very differnt. A quick project, it took around a few hours total.
Here’s the website: http://thisandthatpatterns.com/patterns_charmpatterns.php It won’t let me copy and paste the image of the original pattern I used. It’s pattern number 45.
Today, after I get the domestic duty list done, I’ll start the Turning Twenty bed quilt I’ve cut out and mentioned in Previous Post: https://hfrank007.wordpress.com/2008/06/23/im-in-heavenim-in-heaven/
To be continued!
