Started Strawberry Hill but didn't have enough progress to post yet. Next time ;-)
I received a surprise in the mail Saturday. Part III of the Lizzie*Kate Mystery Sampler. Now just to get the fiber pack and I will be starting this cute, fun stitch!
And progress, you ask, as hinted in the titled - well years ago I took my first formal quilt class. I decided on pinks and browns, yummy fabric. It's called Nancy's Fancy, nine squares. I had a complete one done prior to the one day retreat in August. I left there with only five and one half to go. What's the big deal some may ask - it's only nine squares...each square is about 100 pieces. Yikes - what was I thinking? But she is beautiful. And I have to get a dent in this before starting any of my new batiks (my rule)!
Since it's a three day weekend, since my child is gone most of this three day weekend and since my husband worked all but Saturday - I took advantage - I sewed for about four hours yesterday. I have three left to make. It takes about one hour to assemble each square. The only thing done for each square is the half-square triangles and the lay out - so, to sew rows, then rows to rows to equal four and then each four to make eight. That will be progress.
So up I go - here it is 2:30 on Monday afternoon - Tiger game on, dishes done, laundry done, emails and blog reading caught up, emails out to batik places in search of my fabric done, meal prep for the week (what I can do ahead) done, I need to shower and then plop my fanny into the chair and make pretty with the sewing machine. I am hoping to knock out the other three squares today. I will let you know
I will leave you with a final picture - still searching - madly - for this batik. I just have to have it for the back of my top posted last week!
Stitches and hugs,
