Tonya arrived early this afternoon and the chatter, laughter and sewing has been non-stop!
That is ---non-stop until we decided we really better get some dinner and make a run to the grocery store ----we’d worked up a powerful hunger!
A trip to the local Japanese Hibachi grill filled our bellies, a run to the local grocery store ((The only one in my small burb)) gave us all the good and healthy food and snacks that we need for our on-going sew fest to continue!
Up on deck this week? STRINGS and MORE STRINGS!
I started sewing my neutral string sashings last night during our Quilt-Cam time ---and today that continued.
I’ve arranged the room so that I can treadle on the 227 M while Tonya sews at the Bernina 1008 set into my sew ezi table. PERFECT! We can face each other and see the progress each is making.
Arial view of our set up….I’ve put the Singer 27 down in its cabinet so we have common table space between us. And yes, there are plenty of beverage cups…we are staying well hydrated!
Tonya digging into the string basket I handed her!
Neutral strings in progress..check out the dreidel fabric! FUN!
Sadie was not impressed to be ignored in favor of sewing!
Trimming and slicing!
Quite the pile, but just the beginning of what I’ll need.
Joining all the sashing units together in one long length!
My blocks are 12” finished…so I need to cut the sashing into 12.5” sections. Working them this way gets me more variety….and it’s going to be a great way to set these blocks!
We are now hanging around, each tapping on our laptops while watching some Law & Order and making plans for the next couple of days.
It’s been a fun full day ---and I’m happy to have a good friend here with me!
A happy night to you all from both of us ----
