Where does the time go? Three weeks into February and this is my first gathering of the yellows for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
In between finishing those two tops I showed in my last post, I got a couple of Antique Tile blocks done,
and a couple of yellow chips as well. I've got several more of those cut out and sitting next to my sewing machine since they make dandy leader/enders.
And I really got carried away with my postage stamp blocks for PSP20-21, making not one,
but THREE blocks.
(Admittedly that last one was kind of an oops. I'd lost track of how many I'd made and thought the third one was merely the second.) (This is not a bad oops.)
And while I was doing all that postaging, I finished up another pink that I'd cut out last month but hadn't gotten stitched.
It's been a good month for postage stamps!
I only got one cake stand done so far,
but I've got two more cut out and ready to go.
After working so relentlessly on Grassy Creek and Sand Castles 2, I was a little lost after finishing them. What to do, what to do? Get back to a UFO, or start something new?
You'd be proud - I dug out a little bag of Glitter bits that I'd kitted up a long time ago, then set aside and mostly forgotten. (Somehow in my mind, I'd taken the 'there, that's done' of setting up the kits, and transmuted it into 'there, that's done' as in 'no further action required') I spied a few sets that had yellow incorporated in them and pulled them out to stitch right up.
And there I was, feeling all virtuous for resisting the siren call of starting a new project. So strong!
And since I was being so good, it surely couldn't hurt to just look up that other Jen Kingwell quilt that I want to make. You know, for after I finish Glitter and all. It's always good to be prepared - everyone says so.
So I pulled out the book and just looked at the pattern. And then I read the directions and noticed that she used an odd measurement for the grid base for the blocks. Next thing I knew I was translating the pattern into sizes of strips and squares that I already cut and use, and then this happened.
Not that I'm starting a new project. Nope, not me.
