Lisa came over to play this morning!
She had to be in Boone anyway, and we are right off the highway and up the mountain so it took no arm twisting at all to get her to make a stop and spend some time.
This is the photo she posted to Facebook…not too flattering, but here is Tonya and I hard at work on our STUFF.
Not only did she bring a gorgeous quilt to bind, but she brought a HUGE bag of fabric scraps for us to paw through! I don’t think there has EVER been as much fabric at the cabin as there is this week!
MOUNTAINS of fabric pieces and parts and hunks and chunks and strips and strings and fat quarters and even yardage!
I feel like a kid after trick-or-treating is done on Halloween night. Remember that feeling of dumping out your bounty and seeing just what treasures awaited? FUN!
Lisa deep into binding bliss mode!
We even had Rick and Mona drop by with BEANIE!
Sadie was so happy to see Beanie…they had Zoomies Time out in the front yard, chasing and playing and having a grand time. Sadie is 9, but when she plays with Beanie I would swear she is only 2. It’s a good doggie thing!
Scrap Cutting Central!
If you wonder what my cutting table looks like currently, here is one section.
I was a dinglehead and forgot to pack my 2” neutral strips, so I can’t continue on the Carolina Chain blocks….so I’m switching gears to the next Addicted to Scraps column block in my line up. BOX KITE!
((You can find info on these blocks under the Addicted to Scraps tab at the top of the blog!))
Box Kite…with Krispy Kremes!
The Krispy Kreme fabric came from a pair of recycled pajama pants. Great fun! And don’t they look good enough to eat??
Here’s my layout so far:
Lots more blocks to go!
I have to say something really funny here…..I can’t believe that I am getting emails with “Don’t do this, don’t use that, move that one over…..”
I know you guys are watching, and your discerning eye may THINK that fabrics I am using don’t belong, don’t go, or there are two green blocks placed too close together in my layout.
My quilt. My fabrics. My choices.
And this is just a LAYOUT….just like my Carolina Chain blocks were JUST LAID OUT FOR ESTIMATING QUILT SIZE…there are more blocks to be made, and they were not laid out in their final arrangement.
You don’t need to send me emails to tell me that the placement of this block or that block bothers you, seriously.
It will be okay. Just walk away from the computer, you don’t have to send that email or leave that comment, okay? LOL! This is in no way the final layout, and even if it was….it’s not up for discussion how I choose to place my blocks or what fabrics I deem to place together.
You sew yours, I sew mine, and we stay best of friends.
And with that, I’m headed back to the cutting table to cut more combos that will drive the OCDers out there nuts…and go sew some more!
