Monday - noon update

Okay---super quick update while lunch is cooking

Judy is having a June Mystery (see previous posts). The other day I started sorting through my stash, and I couldn't do much of anything today until I chose my fabrics----they were all over (on the cutting board and ironing board).
At first, I couldn't decide if I wanted to use light colors (left) as Judy's recommended colors, or to use the browns (right).

Yeah---the colors were winning to me....but then I didn't feel there was enough contrast between the dark and medium pinks I choose. I found had this PERFECT dark pink that would have been ideal, but only 3/4 yard :0(

So, I pulled this brown-------hey :0) I like it! This way, I still got my brown in the quilt :0)

Then I moved onto the project of the morning. MONTHS and MONTHS ago, I signed up for a "Too Good to Cut Challenge" (see left side bar.) It was time to FINALLY cut into the fabrics....

the fabric line used...

all fabs cut (with my L-n-E project pictured upper left)

the first piecing.......and, ummm......cutting too fast?????

the status at the start of lunch.....

but I couldn't stop there, so I zipped them through the machine, piecing the next step before running upstairs at mach speed.

So, lunch is on the table and then it's time to get outside to enjoy the weather.......

So glad you got a chance to sew something. The nice thing about too many irons in the fire is that pulling out something to work on is never a problem. Love the colors for the Judy L mystery. Hope the gardening goes well, I'm sure it will all be worth it in a few months when you are harvesting all of your goodies.
