I don't get much time to wander off to my sewing room, so some things have migrated back down to the sun porch---small ironing board, large cutting mat, couple of rulers, (no sewing machine as of yet). Um yep it made the appearance yesterday.
While I am waiting in the morning for the AO to get motivated to move, I have been working on binding. I keep the thread I am using next to where I am sitting. I was working on my pumpkin hanging and went to reach for my thread, and it was gone! I looked in my bag by the couch, in the couch I sit on, under the arm chair next to where I sit, in the arm chair, in my purse, on my sewing table, in my jacket pockets....you get the picture. Even Finn and my daughter look under the couch. I looked upstairs in my sewing room (gasp!) like it somehow made it there.
As Finn and his mamma were leaving, I pull the couch out and there it is, it had rolled under the couch, and somehow had eluded Finn, and his mamma, even after she cleaned under the couch!
With all of my purchases lately I really wanted to sew something, and maybe learn something new. I decided to play with the side kick ruler that I purchased. I have 2 big shopping bags of scraps to cut up for charity quilts for the guild. We uses10 inch squares, 4 1/2 inch squares and 2 1/2 inch x at least 12 inch strips, anything smaller can be thrown into dog beds or thrown into the person who is cutting up the scraps. Because we make gurney quilts which are donated to transport wounded soldiers, anything with metallic flecks cannot be used. Therefore I ended up with a large chunk of yellow fairy frost, and a bunch of short 2 1/2 inch purple strip, throw in some strips from my stash, I made the pattern Rock Candy by Jaybird Quilts to test drive the side kick ruler.
Of course I still have things trickling in from purchases some several weeks ago.
Today I needed to escape the house for a bit. The AO were irritating me, because he needs to go in for a procedure tomorrow and he is whining, and complaining up a storm. One of the LQS recently moved and I wanted to check out their new digs. Plus I needed some fabrics for the last 3 months of the RSC, perhaps I will finish up the blocks for the year soon.
Hmmm I wonder what kind of mischief I can get into next?
