Clean up that cutting table!
Do you get that way too?
Things are going along fine, and then all of a sudden I have had ENOUGH, and things have to be cleaned up before I can move forward.
Yesterday morning was like that for me. I had spent the day before cutting cutting and more cutting ((evidence on the table top in plain sight!)) and when I came down stairs yesterday morning to start up again, it was a CLEAN IT NOW compulsion that took me over.
Yesterday's job involved some binding.
It seemed like I had made MILES of binding -- much more than enough.
And then things started to get sticky when I ended up with a SEAM in the corner!
Yes -- this involved a seam ripper, some scissors, and a re-positioning of that seam.
And just when I thought I was on the home stretch --
I'm 12" short! How did that happen? Did I forget a strip at home -- just didn't bring enough up here with me? **Sigh**
So this project was set aside. I'm going to look at home and see if there was any fabric left over from when I cut this binding to begin with - you see it was more than a month ago ((or so it feels)) when I cut this binding, and I honestly can NOT remember if there is any left. If there isn't, I'll piece something else close in there. It will become part of the story!
Mona came over to work on her FIFTH project!
((There is no stopping this power machine!))
Quilt laid out - Assembly started!
It's so fun watching a new quilter work things out in their mind. I explained that on-point quilts are sewn in diagonal rows, with each row getting longer until you reach the center. When the light went on, you could tell -- she really got it! And she was off and assembling.
Pieces coming together!
Almost halfway together!
This morning I am typing up this post out on the front porch -- enjoying my last few hours with these beautiful mountains.
I'm headed home today. There is much to do that requires me to be home --so I'm in cabin-cleaning mode and Sadie and I will head down the mountain probably after lunch.
I'm thinking TOMORROW NIGHT will be a good night for Quilt-Cam for me.
That's TUESDAY, June 2nd at 9pm Eastern! Oh that's right! Happy JUNE, everyone!
Make it a good Monday!
