I must have a problem with sanity!


Yesterday Irene came over and we sewed til about 9
last night! I really cut almost as much as sewed. Irene
accually finished 3 flimsies... I just kept sewing and cutting.
I found when done I only have 5 more blocks to cut for my
pick and choose quilt(6 to sew)...so this morning I decided
Just maybe I had better start randomly cutting my 1 1/2"
strips into odd lengths for sashing. Yeah right, I had saved these strips over time and some were long enough to cut
for my courthouse step quilt that has had the grand total
3 blocks completed since 2003 so, you guessed it....I am cutting for both at the same time. the picture is of the strips I have to trim to size before I have to cut more for the sashing. The right side of the chairback are the ones I will get both quilts out of... and the drawer still has mountains
to pull out. I think I will work on the shorter pieces first.
I do want to get the Pick and choose done in a timely manner.
Its beautiful out side...I think I will close the door to the studio and go dig in the garden!
as ever,
A

Ann,

Sounds like you had a great day. With this pretty sunshine, I understand that you don't want to be inside. I couldn't stand it anymore either, and worked a little outside today. It is time for me to get these porches and the deck cleaned up, and ready for spring.

Ohhhhhh how I love your scraps!!! Glad Irene was there for day of quilting with you. I agree, yesterday was too pretty to be inside.......but I didn't get the opportunity to sit out there!!!!
