Today was the first substantial time spent in my sewing room in QUITE some time -- July, maybe? Recall, my month of August was filled with my new obsession of crochet; and then, of course, school started in September.
I dare say this is my first COMPLETE weekend home since school began. Both days! And I can stay in my PJs!!!! And despite needing to tackle piles and piles of laundry, today... I still sewed!
Bonnie's Celtic Solstice mystery is drawing closer; less then 2 weeks. I will ALWAYS take part in a Bonnie mystery; they simply are be-YOND amazing designs!
Therefore, I wanted to just clear my head and organize the umpteen projects in various stages in order to be ready for the mystery.
The crib quilt for a friend didn't take much effort to get to flimsy stage. There is no longer a rush on the quilt, but I'd still like to get it to a finished state sooner than later.
Pattern: Confetti, Quiltmaker March/April 2010.
Super quick and easy!
Next was to take care of the stacks of pieces/units for the RWB Pineapple Blossom quilt that was started (and left) back in June. At the same time, I had some Leaders-Enders in the works for the Lazy Sunday border units.
Those have now been set aside for some day in the future. My layout will be the same as my last Pineapple Blossom quilt.
My full attention then moved onto piecing Lazy Sunday blocks with sashing, all the while, continuing with the border units as my leader-enders.
I was midway through the second row when my bobbin thread ran out, nor did I have any more bobbins prepped. Therefore, I took that as a sign to call it a day. Seven hours is still WAY more than I've sewed in months.
Now... I'll relax with my feet up with my crochet hook in-hand to work on Cassie's Laker Ripple afghan.
Happy Saturday. Truly.
