Design Wall Monday - 12/3/12

I didn't have a lot of sewing time this weekend but I still think I made some decent progress on Easy Street...


I need 24 more twosies - the strip sets are sewn so I just need a few more minutes to subcut them.


I also have all 256 triangles cut for the flying geese units and I have assembled my dark purples. I find it quite strange that purple is one of my fav colors and I really don't have many purple fabrics...I need to remedy that problem!

Easy Street Guessing Game
Last Thursday I posted a guessing game on my blog. Viewers were supposed to guess how many twosies I had already trimmed based on the photo. I gave a little clue that I had talked about my counting "technique" before and here is is again - I use the thimbles and buttons to count. After I count 5 subcuts I lay a thimble on it's side on the cutting board or after 10 I stand up the thimble. After I get to 100, I take away the thimbles and put out a button. Therefore, I had already cut 172 twosies when the photo was taken.

The closest guesser without any clues was ANudge with a guess of 192!! Unfortunatley, no one guessed without clues as to how to guess...

Yard Sale
Don't forget I have some yard sale items on my blog. I didn't have time to update the list of items this weekend but I think Bonnie said there will be a collective/online yard sale next Saturday so I'll definitely get the list updated by then...

Yellow is my favorite color, and I don't have very many yellow scraps either!

Great bunch of work you've done there, Sarah! I have barely any purples in my stash either though I love the color. Maybe because I am picky about the prints...it can be really hard to find non-kid purple prints :)

Great work Sarah! I love your fabrics. I had lots of purple but I never seemed to use it either. The good news was I didn't have to buy anything for the mystery. (closet fabric hoarder...what the husband doesn't know won't hurt him!) Cheers!

LOL! You and your guessing games! I love it. Wanna take a guess at how many miles I've ridden/driven over the past six days? Bahaha!

So Bonnie's doing the yard sale thing on Saturday?! GREAT! I'll have to get some stuff out and ready! :)

The geese fabrics are gorgeous! Clue 3 is here.
