Strip Twist n Stuff
I ended up with this while I was cutting the strips of 2.5 inch fabrics that I cut for my girlie Strip Twist designed by Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville. What happened is that I got distracted and started doing something else and the next thing I know I have this pile of stuff laying on top of my strips. I KNOW I put them right there!.
Any way messed got moved and I located my 9 inch strips that I had cut for my Strip Twist that had become the Project for the day.
Project for the Day started because of the Chaos of my projects was getting out of hand. I figured that if I work on one project a day for the next year I might have a few finishes instead of just starts and UFO's. ( I have a short attention span.) Who am I kidding I LOVE new projects and all that yummy goodness of crisp Best Pressed fabric waiting to be cut. Back to the Project of the day, this isn't a resolution its just a way to keep me focused (pretty hard) on one project for a day to work on. I have no deadlines, no pressure just some good clean sewing fun.
Because yesterday I had cut , lost found and then sewn these bits together. there are 50 pairs of strips to make 25 blocks to whip together. I think I need to make another 30 pairs for the size I want.
Not leaving Wednesday out but I was working on the never ending pile of half square triangles to do the pinwheels in my OTR . I chose to do the pinwheels in purple so they stand out a bit and my leader and enders have no purple in them. They have to be pressed open and then sewn into 4 patches. The bricks in this project was cut out when Bonnie first started this in what seems like ages ago.
Lets see what trouble I can create in my sewing today.
Be Safe and use a Klutz glove. I gotta get me one of those.
