I love days when things plug along like a well oiled machine!
I got into a major rhythm this morning piecing together the 600 flying geese units into rows of 6. Although, once I got to the end, I kinda scratched my head....... not sure if I was missing units or if I had extra. But I figured I'd worry about that once I neared the finish of the 25 blocks; I didn't want to be slowed down with counting and figuring at that time.
And wouldn't ya know it? THEY WERE EXTRA!
These were most definitely super fun blocks to piece. Every block is a bit crazy, 1845 style! Andra and Andee swapped some beautiful units!
Unfortunately, this is as far as I can go. I don't have any "perfect" fabrics for use as sashing; so a shopping spree will need to be planned. Soon. :)
Therefore, I took care of cutting up Easy Street part 6 since my cutting board had been cleaned off. That didn't take all that long....
So FINALLY.... these fabrics had been calling me long enough, waiting so patiently on one of my shelves. And go figure, right!?!?!?!? Light purples, rich hunter greens, and copper. LOL. My favorite!
After looking through my files of "to be made someday" patterns, I pulled out "Forever Christmas." Although, these most definitely are not Christmas colors. :) I'm simply thinking of shortening it to "Forever". Seems fitting. They ARE my favorite color combinations afterall :)
I was plugging along, cutting away and piecing away. Until 3:30, when the Packer game pulled me away.
And now that I see this brownish/reddish fabric that I thought I'd try as a "here i am!" fabric..... I'm reallllly not liking it.
I'm glad I haven't sewn these together yet. That fabric may just be ripped out, and I'll grab one of my darker greens.
Meet Father-in-Law. Taken Christmas Day.
Happy Sunday everyone!
