I had a whole day at home yesterday to sew to my heart's content! I needed to iron some new FQs so I could put them away in the proper bins and I got that out of the way early. I was also determined to finish up two smaller hexie projects and those would be easy to do while I finished the DVD set for WhiteCollar Season 1 due at the library today.
The thing is...I never got motivated to machine sew anything other than the 2 steps needed to catch up with the Market Day SAL and some leaderender basket blocks which I'll share later in the week. I had plenty that needed doing but nothing that I could decide on. And that means all y'all are stuck looking at the hexies I worked on yesterday...
|I think I had to baste another 6 or 7 hexies and then whipstitch the whole basket together for The Hexie Blog BOM. I had once thought of using another fabric or 2 to look like there were flowers in the basket but I finally decided that might not work well with the flowers on the fabric that was already cut so I just went with my original plan. I'm pleased with the balance of the flowers across the piece - I think I only planned 2 of them, pulling the rest out of a paper bag.|
|I caved and bought another set of jewel papers to use on my Salt & Pepper project. I was one paper short on this block but had put the rest of it together so all I had to do yesterday was baste 1 more jewel and whipstitch it in place.|
|I finally decided to join the Value Proposition QAL with Karen and picked fabrics for my first block. The QAL is already on their 2nd block but I am determined not to berate myself for being late on this project since I know I'll be late for all 22 blocks! LOL! I'll get them done when I'm done.|
