It's Monday AM and this is my weekend so far.
My weekend started Friday when a friend wanted to know if I had made the Jelly Roll quilt where you sewed all of the strips together end to end and then side by side. Well I hadn't done it yet but had been thinking about. Anything J sends my way I tend to take as a challenge. So Friday night I pulled out a Jelly Roll and started. Found out real quick that it was a small roll containing only 20 strips so I had to start cutting additional strips from the matching fat quarter bundles I had picked up at the same sale. Including making 20 additional strips from the fat quarters I was completely done the top in just under 3 hours. The first long seam of 800 inches is a hum dinger, I finished that and went to bed. The next morning I got up and finished the top before breakfast. OK so the 3 hours does not include ironing. That seemed to take forever. The top finished at something around 48 x 62. I did listen to a great book while making these long seems and ironing. "The Brutal Telling" by Louise Penny ( a mystery takes place in Canada)
After that, I went on to finish the tote B asked that I make for her. I really like the way this one turned out. Maybe I need to keep it for me, maybe not because I really am toted out for the time being. Next I decided to work on some personalized purses that I wanted to do only to find out I was out of black ink. Instead I worked a bit on some mug rugs that I need to do for a swap later this month. I gave in and ran to Staples for ink and whipped up the 2 purses and called it a day.
It's now 9AM on a cloudy soon to be rainy Holiday Monday. I need to go find something else to accomplish. I hope you and yours have a great Holiday.
