Finally, a productive day!
A little cleaning, a lot of laundry, and a bit of sewing. Up first...
Look at this fun stack of fabrics I got at JoAnn's yesterday:
|Aunt Edna by Denyse Schmidt|
There were a couple of other prints that I didn't get, but I have to say that I really love these. This warmer colorway is a little more "me" than the earlier lines. And it seems like the fabric is of a much more consistent quality than the last line. I did notice that the price has gone up another $3/yard, though these were all on sale. I've gotten a little stack of various DS for JoAnn's prints collected so I really think I need to start planning a quilt with them, don't you? Suggestions??
The instructions for our February blocks for do. Good Stitches was posted yesterday, so I thought I would get started on that today, too. We are making the September Modern Block of the Month from Sew, Mama, Sew. It is an interesting block involving triangles, so I was excited to give it a shot. I have to say that I was feeling pretty good about myself, until I got to this point...
Can you see how there is a good 3/4" variation from the top left to the bottom? Blerg.
I also managed to finish widening all the strips on Wyatt's quilt so now all I need to do is sew the 5 of them together and get the chenille attached. Another accomplishment today...baking Susan's Lemon Cake, though there is no picture to show as I hacked into it as soon as it was cool. Delicious!
One thing that I didn't get done today...re-attaching one of the "shift" keys on my computer that Max removed this morning. All of the kids have pried keys off my laptop at some point and I didn't have any trouble popping them back on, but this one just won't go. And it feels really weird to not be able to use it!
What did you accomplish today?
