My first chore for the weekend was packing my little blue suitcase with hexie projects for an upcoming trip. Yeah, it's early to pack but I see it as setting my honey-do or priority list until repacking for the next trip in mid-April. Any way...the suitcase worked cuz I was pretty productive.
Second chore was cleaning up a bookcase - tune in tomorrow for those pictures.
Having done my "chores", it was time to play so I alternated back and forth between hexies and machine work.
|I like the sparkle the teal flange adds|
One of my easiest finishes was the binding on this doll quilt. It was already sewn onto the front of the quilt, I just had to machine sew it to the back with my flat fell foot. Easy peasy.
I think the Quality Control Officer was pleased.
|Not the world's best photo but I really liked the texture as I was turning off the room lights.|
I also worked on a section of the quilting on this (unnamed) doll quilt. I had quilted orange peels in the hexie off-center strip but wasn't sure about the other strips. After some encouragement from Janet I went ahead with my idea for a grid (matching the hexie edges/angles) on the larger strip. The remaining smaller strip (at bottom of photo) will have feathers.
|I'm not the only one taking advantage of the table!|
I also got a real good start on name badge holders for my upcoming conference. I took advantage of the 8 foot table still up from the party last week and spread out each "kit" so I work on it assembly style.
On Saturday afternoon I peaked into my little blue suitcase for a project to work on while I watched one episode of Grey's Anatomy. I decided to work on the ombre rosettes since I thought it would be easy to finish one rosette.
Of course, as the weekend progressed, I kept going back to the ombre project.
After all, there were only 6 rosettes left to finish...
You know that I finished all the rosettes by last night, right? There is one more at work that I will take home to finish tonight and then I'll find a piece to sub in the burnt orange gradient. I think that will make 21 rosettes.
|Am I crazy enough to cut fabric for the diamonds before my trip?|
I've even worked out a setting. I'll be using these 3/4" diamonds. Please know that *IF* I ever post a picture of myself I will be bald from making tiny diamonds...
And after the rosettes were done? I pulled out my card trick blocks and got a good start on this too.
Yeah - I might have to repack the suitcase before my trip...and I'm ok with that...
