One morning this week I got up early and decided to start cutting out a triple Irish Chain that I'd been wanting to do for ages. It was all in red, blue and white, with a touch of grey and pink; wonderful colours, against a green background.
The material hadn't been put away yet, so I cut out a few 2"strips, and made a nine-patch from them, and thought, 'You know, that looks a little bit Big to me'.
I cut madly for a couple of days, and sewed four complete blocks. just to make sure I was happy.
Then it occurred to me that I wasn't supposed to start anything new, until I'd finished two old projects. Failed big time there. So I went through the drawers of almost finished tops, and found two that just needed borders.
