Old Faithful (my '71 Singer) , after its unexpected promotion to Main Machine, and I buckled down to some serious piecing for the last two days.
I was actually halfway through the block in the right hand corner when disaster struck yesterday.
As you can see, I finished it, and even continued.
Those are the first five blocks for March in the 365 Challenge. Yay, I'm less than three weeks behind now! (By one day, but still that totally counts.)
And you know there had to be piglets...
I found another yarn-y fabric -
and I thought I had already used this purple plaid for a piglet, but I can't find it, so I made another one. Because I love this purple plaid.
I cut out a few more projects while I had the rotary cutter in my hand. Apparently I think I need at least two more purple piglets, plus I cut a bunch of 1.5" squares for my four-patch leader/enders because I was running low. On the far right are some tiny boats, ready to sail off to the sewing machine.
And a monkey mysteriously appeared, bearing his own provisions.
That banana fabric was a gift from Libby last fall, along with a couple of monkey prints. She apparently felt that the monkey fires needed to be fanned. And it worked.
Because while I was piecing some little boats for my Rainbow Regatta -
THIS suddenly hove into view.
Just when you thought it was safe to get back in the water, another one turned up.
Just to add to the chaos, that second monkey ship is going the wrong way...
