As usual I am up at the crack of dawn. No exception today. And I brushed my teeth and hurried down to the studio for a few hours of strip piecing before Paul got up.
We usually run all our “together errands” on Wednesday’s so I had until 7:30am to play.
I started strip piecing some 6.5” squares yesterday after making the pillowcases.
I had looked over at the strip bin and it’s overflowing state and decided that I would tackle it a bit. This would cover the need to start another something new (the pillowcases alone did not quench the thirst of new project syndrome) and clean up a getting to be unruly part of the studio.
I got a few squares done but the fire was lit inside me and I wanted to tackle some more.
I was sewing away and gabbing with friends on Facebook. Such a nice way to start the day.
The strips were dumped on the floor behind my chair for easy access to pick and choose.
I brought over my BIG Rowenta iron right after taking this picture. All the better to press those strips into place.
Sew – Sew – Sew
Finally it was time to do some trimming. I heard Molly come down the stairs. Her tags jingling as she walked behind me. I thought she was headed to her doghouse area in the studio.
While out and about today I dreamed up the quilt for my 6.5” squares. And sketched out the plan.
I am going to be doing some more sewing. A lot more.
