Due to the big storm 2 Friday's ago, we had postponed Hexie Club to this past Friday. Unfortunately, we only had 3 people at the meeting which turned out ok - we had cookies and got lots of stitching done.
Saturday was my Guild sit-n-sew where I finished section #6 of my Christmas Tree Skirt. I quickly laid out section 7 (above) and got right on it. As of lunch today, I've got the left and right corners complete up through the red rows and I have 3 of the 4 top rows completed. I should be able to finish this section by the weekend thanks to several evening meetings. I hope they don't mind my stitching while they talk. That leaves just one more section. Eeeeekkkkk!!!!!
Yesterday I went to a town on the other side of the county to visit their quilt store - I needed a little more of 2 grunge fabrics for current projects. Well. I gotta tell you. I was held hostage by that grunge section until I came up with the following idea.
It's an incomplete idea as I don't know what (EPP, of course) pattern I'll be using but I'm being a good girl and not even thinking about it until that tree skirt is done!
I also visited a new "junk" store where I was held hostage by several crocks. I know I probably already have enough crocks but that's like saying I already have enough fabric. Ain't neither never gonna come out of my mouth...
The label on this crock claimed it was a 2 gallon. Really? Pretty sure it's a ten-er...but I could be wrong.
This means I now have a 20 gallon, 10 gallon and 2 six gallon crocks plus 12 to 15 smaller ones. The only crocks with out a purpose are the new crocks and I'll find a use for them soon enough. I use the 20 for fabric scraps, a six for rolls of wrapping paper and the other 6 for a kitchen garbage can. I use the smaller ones for all kinds of storage all over the house.
BTW - using a 20 gallon crock for scraps is NOT a good idea - can't keep up with the scraps when the container is that large.
I thought this 1.5(?) gallon crock had a different/neat bottom. It's got blue speckles on one side like it was around other crocks being marked with blue glaze but other than the bottom it's a standard crock.
I'll let Zorro tell you about my other hostage situations on Friday =^..^=
