I finished sewing all of the blocks today for the queen sized quilt I am making. They still need to be cut, but that requires buying a 12.5″ ruler and I have not made it to Joann’s yet. Plus, from this point on – everything begins to get very awkward with pinning big strips and laying out the design in my living room. Just glad to be making progress on it.
I actually went shopping yesterday at a huge fabric shop about 40 minutes from here. Could not believe the selection the store had. And that it took me three years to finally visit the place. But I walked out with nothing! Nothing struck me as “had to have.” This is a place to go when you are working on a specific project and know what you need. Very proud of myself for not adding to the stash this week.
I am going to even out my stash report because of the great new project I have been working on. Fabric Yo-Yos! My friend Carol inspired me to actually use the Clover templates I own. I cut up a lot of fabric last weekend to make yo-yos with. So I am calling it even on my stash. No idea what I will be doing with these yo-yos yet, but I am excited to be using pretty fabric.
