I finally got some sewing done today, lots of it too. I should have been doing other things, but after yesterday, (sanded all day long on the sheetrock mud) I didn't feel like it. Soooooooo, what did I accomplish today. For starters, trying to catch up on Kylie's mystery with my pink n orange:
Got all 40 of these done, didn't press them yet, cuz I am not sure which way I will want my seams to go yet.
Also all over my table are turquoise strings, so I finally sewed a few of those today, I started with doing just 2. Then I said try for 5. Well I got 4 done, and that was enough of those for one day. These are for my Orca Bay quilt, that I am slowly working on. I did finish pressing all those hour glass blocks a while back, I think I have way more than I need, but that is ok. I will save the extras for a rainy day or use them on the back.
Last weekend I was on a cutting frenzy, here are some of the strips I cut. These are the 5 inch, and the 4 inch piles. That 5 inch pile is about 12 inches tall.
Awhile back I had mentioned de-boning blue jeans, and had about 143 more pairs to go. Some of you emailed me and asked how many pairs I really had left............well here is a pic of some of them piled as high as the fabric shelf. There is a third pile hidden by the design board, and more on the floor. Another HUGE box down in the laundry room too, because this shelf is full. So when I said 143 more pairs to go, I might be 1-5 pairs off..........in either direction! :D
I stitched the first two together, but then when I went to cut it, I stopped........looking for the directions or youtube video as soon as I am done here.
I am not supervising at work right now, so I went back to working my old job. What a change, hadn't done this in almost a year. But I now have weekends off again, which is nice. Helps get the remodel finished. But then again I use to have Thursdays off, so it was hard to wake up and go to work this past Thursday. Also Thursday was my birthday,so it sucked that much more to go to work. I had plans for that day, and going to work wasn't part of them. I turned the big ol 44. Really? I am really 44?........doing math in my head. Crap, yes I am really 44. I don't feel like I am 44 now. Guild meeting was on Thursday so look what I got......
a fat quarter cupcake, calorie free too! It is bright pink, but the flash washed it out.
My husband had asked me last weekend what I wanted for my Bday, I told him the usual. (fabric) and these two books from Bonnie Hunter and I had also given him a hint the day before. He told me to go online and order my books and some fabric for my present, like I made him order his watch he wanted for his birthday and Father's Day too. So I ordered the books, I am still waiting on the them, and the fabric I finally ordered it today. Good thing I waited, I got bday emails with coupon codes!!! Well he also caught my hint. I got the Trilogy of the "Shades of Grey" books on my bday. Now to break open the plastic and start reading the so called smut filled books. Don't know how dirty they are, but I will let you know if you want to read them or not if your into reading good books.
