Remember my Treadling Photo from the deck the other day?
I ran into a small snafu.
Not on EVERYTHING I had pieced…but on quite a bit….
The squares of phone book paper I had cut were NOT 8.5” square before cutting them in half on the diagonal.
Somehow they ended up too small, and my pieces wouldn't fit together. I had a whole handful of block quarters that were the WRONG SIZE and I was so frustrated I threw them in the trash and walked away.
The next morning an idea hit me, and I went back down, pulled them out….and CUT the string pieced parts off of the kites.
I can still use these ends!
New kite on the correct paper size.
I just have to add a strip up next to the kite, and then I can sew these “wrong size” de-papered and un-thrown-out ends on and I’m good!
Strip added, end ready to be reclaimed and sewn back on!
This might have been a no-brainer to some of you, but to me it was like….WOW! I really was going to throw these wrong size units in the trash.
6 pink centers, and two yellow sides…
Sadie doesn’t look too interested at this point, but at least she is staying OFF of my blocks for the moment.
Next row of yellow ready to go on the top.
When the yellow round is done, the green one will be the next to work on. I’m still undecided about the final row color after that…this is evolving as I am working on it. We shall see!
The cheddar Sampler is FINISHED!!
I took this photo on the front porch while it was raining yesterday. I’m so happy with this finish. Not sure what to do with it, or where to put/hang it ---but I’m happy with it!
Bottom edge and perfect binding from a shirt!
We’ve also had some front porch improvement since there was lots of guy-help here this past week:
Front Porch Fans!! Move that humid air, baby!!
Myron and Pam are heading out back toward Dallas, Texas today. It’s been great having them here. The cabin will be very quiet, and I know that Sadie will miss them too!
Today is for resting up, putting things back in order after a busy week, sewing some, napping some, enjoying the front porch some ----
