My blog from last Sunday magically disappeared again. What the deuce blogger?! Why must you gobble up my Sunday stuff?
This is the view from my front porch. It's a monster heat wave and I refuse to go outdoors. Or spend money watering the yard. I expect to see tumble weeds any day. I haven't sewn as much lately for the sheer reason that the iron being on makes a room too hot. God bless you Sonic Drive In, and you're wonderful pellets of ice.
I looked at what I had made for my swap partner and realized it kinda sucked. I liked it at first, but then the more I looked at it the uglier I thought it was. I made a whole new small gift and it looks a lot better. I'm a little nervous about posting it to the group and her saying she didn't like it. I'm not sure my ego could stand the blow right now.
I had started a tote a la Tetris from back in the day. I charted it out on my handy graph paper, cut the pieces and sewed them into strips. When trying to join the strips, I don't quite know what happened. I don't know how everything ended up so wonky and crooked! Nothing matched up right at all! How does that even happen?! That may end up being scratched as well. I have some more solids coming in soon so hopefully that will kick me in the rear and find something that doesn't come out looking like technicolor dog poo.
This is the New Wave quilt I'm making for my sweet mums. There are 3 more rows and its turned out pretty big. I had to rip apart a lot of the sashing pieces. For whatever reason I sewed them on, and then trimmed them down without realizing there were big gaps where I hadn't done it straight. Thankfully I bought tons of the fabric I'm using. Once those got fixed its coming along swimmingly :) The 8 rows have now turned into 4 2row pieces.
I spent Sunday doing this all day. Just Between Friends is a big consignment sale that I somehow manage to sell stuff at in the Spring/Summer, but not Fall/Winter. These are Little Man's newborn - 2T winter clothes. It's hard to imagine him ever being that small. Some of my favorites aren't going though. I don't plan on any more kids, but I guess I'm a sentimental sap and love me some onesies.
As per usual, I'm linking up with the lovely ladies at Freshly Pieced.
