Do you ever have times when you are not doing a whole lot of sewing but you want to try some new things?
Last year at a quilt show I saw a quilt made of panels that had been cut up and sewn back together. My guild was going to have a class on it, but it got cancelled for some reason so I thought maybe I would find the book and a panel that I wanted to use.
I found the book on Ebay.
I have been going back and forth about doing the Bonnie Hunter mystery QAL. But I decided I would pull some fabrics and maybe acquire some new ones.
The Quilter's Asylum had a lovely bundle of fabrics 2 of each color to give you a start. I thought they were pretty awesome looking so I bought the bundle. Wednesday, DH and his mother went to the apple orchard to pick up our 2 bushels of Mutsu apples. They are a cross between a Granny Smith, and a Yellow Delicious, nice firm flesh, but not too sweet. I met them after work and we went to dinner and headed to Joann's Fabrics. I needed some fabric to finish up my stocking. While I was there I bought some greens. I hope they will work too since I don't have a whole lot of green in my stash.
Oh and here are my Christmas Fabrics.
The pile of scraps shown here. Turned into this.
Sunday afternoon DH and I were going to remove window screens and wash windows and the screens, but we have had an invasion of Japanese Beetles. They look like orangish colored ladybugs, but they are not very lady like. They are constantly landing on you, crawling all over you, and they bite too even when unprovoked! So more than likely we open a window and remove a screen we are going to be invaded and I just cannot deal with more bugs in the house after the cricket invasion of September.
That is the sewings on going on around here, not much sewing but lots of planning.
