First thankyou to all who joined in the fun in my last post. So nice to meet some lurkers and find out a bit about where you all live. I so enjoyed reading all your comments - not that I don't normally if you get my drift - lol ! Anyway I did a little number generator thing this morning and the lucky number was 7.....And it was Linda. My little bag will be on it's way to Oklahoma very soon.
I need to answer a few questions from that last post but I will do that next time as this will just be a quick one as I am trying to make a meal at the same time. I have pizza dough rising as we speak and have to go and see to it soon.
Now for my confession . . . .
As some of you will know I have been doing the quiltville mystery quilt and this weekend was going to be dedicated to getting a bit further along. I was nearly at the stage of completing all the blocks when alarm bells started ringing. The little basket that held some of the 9-patches seemed to have fewer in it than I thought I needed. A quick count and I was right. I THOUGHT I had made 100 but for some strange reason there were only 88. After a couple of re-counts the number stayed the same. I had a look under and behind things in case they had wandered but no - definitely 88. Luckily I had cut too many 1.5 inch strips so quickly joined some more up. Sew, press, cut - great.. Quick count .......2 short. ARGHH. Here's where I spat my dummy ( comforter ) out - lol !!! Stuck them all away in a strop....
But still I had loads of those extra strips lying around....mmmmmm what to do ?? Not supposed to be starting anything in January.....
4 inches finished -
Shall I or not ?? This is the fabric that called my name from Iceland and thanks to Gudrun is now in Wales..
Stay tuned - lol ! I have actually got a lot further along but want to do a bit more before I show my progress. I have had so much fun doing this.. Not planned at all and certainly not a UFO but I had a great time. Hope you all did too.
