I've been sewing like a demon today! It's the first time in about 8 weeks since I've had 2 days in a row off. And, it was beautiful. Yesterday was nothing but errands and Bethany's prom. (Pictures of that are on Facebook) Today was me and my sewing room. Glorious. Sierra told me the room was happy again because I was in it. I think it's been about a month since I'd sat down at my machine. Sad times.
The green fabric was a companion that I bought with the weird brown one I used for my sunflower centers, It's really, just so ugly, as a large piece. At first, I felt guilty using ugly fabric on a friend's quilt but now that it's cut up in little pieces, it's not so ugly. In fact, it's kind of great. I think this may have been the real reason I bought it in the first place.
Another problem I had is that I hate Flying Geese. I don't know why everybody thinks they're so great. You have to make tons of them before you get something interesting. Maybe that's the problem, I don't care for the monotony of them. The green blocks took 3.5 hours. The yellow, half hour. If I'd known that from the beginning, she'd have more big ones and less little ones... Just kidding, I would feel horrible if I didn't do my best for a friend.
Talk at you soon friends!
