I made a commitment NOT to blog on weekends, but it is pouring, the laundry is done for the weekend (I think) and all I have left is to clean Miss Izzy Guinea Pig's cage. As I mentioned in my last post, I joined in on my very first Friday Night Sew In over at Heidi's blog. I had already chosen this Schnibbles pattern
and this Charm Pack by Blackbird Designs so it was easy to get started on a little project (yes! another one!!)
My night went something like this:
7:45pm- start a load of whites so that mom's pants would be ready for my sister to pick up in the am
7:55pm- head to attic to pick out a background fabric from the huge stash hidden from plain view
8:05- background chosen, begin cutting the following:
85 background squares at 2"x2", 44 side triangles, 4 corner triangles, 72 assorted print squares at 2"x2", 36 2"x5" assorted print strips.
8:45pm- let the sewing commence!
10pm- change laundry. Pat myself on back- three rows are finished! Four more rows are set to go.
11:30pm- Eyes are crossed, I've been up 17 hours so far, and as much fun as I am having, I think it is time for bed! Is that allowed at a Friday Night Sew-In??
I'm half done and expect to spend my day tomorrow sewing to completion. What a great way to spend a quiet Friday night.
Stay tuned, more to come soon.....
