Isn't Mother's Day wonderful, with all the crysanthemums in the shops?
I couldn't understand why I felt so driven to keep cutting projects these last few days, without stopping to sew and actually enjoy myself. Then I realised why I'm stockpiling; my DD is coming to stay for a few weeks, and my subconcious was obviously in charge, making sure that I will have a heap of piecing that I can just pick up and put down easily. I'm glad someone is on the ball around here.
Today I want to cut up all my 3.5" strips, so that I can actually get the drawer shut easily. They will make those simple plaid blocks that were on my design wall a while ago. Once I've done that, I will have completely emptied my 1.5, 2.5 and 3.5"strip drawers, cutting them into pieces for kits. Quite an achievement, I feel. As soon as I sew all those kitted projects together I'll feel even better.
On Friday Mereth and I ran away to a neighbouring town and investigated the Op-shop there. I found all this vintage ric-rac for 20 cents each, so I bought the oldest ones. I have no idea what I'll do with it, but I can feel an applique project coming on, I'll have to preshrink all this, it's pretty poor quality, but at least it's all guaranteed colour fast.
