Well, the weekend was a fairly productive one, for a change…
Saturday, I worked on cleaning the sewing room (a bit) and then cut the pieces needed for the next step of the “Day Dreams” paper piecing project. I don’t know why, but I really like photos of stacks of cut fabric… so much color, so much potential…
And don’t you like my big tray that I got for 99 cents at the Goodwill store? It is huge and perfect for holding fabric bits and pieces.
I sure hope that I’m done with fabric #9, because this is all that I have left:
I’m fairly certain that I won’t need any more of this particular fabric, but if I do, I’ll find something else in my stash to substitute.
On Sunday, I used the fabrics and the arch pattern pieces and got almost three of them done (out of eight total) before the Broncos game started. They go together fairly quickly, I guess, but still take about an hour each.
(forgot to take pics of the finished ones, will have to get that photo later).
I had previously finished the “Spiked Borders” but haven’t attached them to the piece yet. But here they are for you to see… each one took nearly a day of constant sewing…
The photo is a little blurry and cluttered, because the borders are hanging in front of the center section, but oh well. You can get the general idea.
I made bread during the Broncos game. Seriously, folks… are there any crueler words in the English language than “Cool completely before cutting?”
I managed to wait until dinner time to cut into the bread. It was fairly yummy and really light. Just my standard white (yeast based) bread, but it will make some lovely toast this week.
The cats had a relaxing weekend, I suppose, but they are cats. Purrcy was a bit put out that Taffy was “in his spot” but she just tucked her nose under her paw and ignored him. At least the sunspot was big enough for both of them.
