Wow, last week I’d just left Colorado, how quickly time seems to fly. Today I am off to Athens, OH to see BioGirl! Hubster is on a golf trip, so I spent a few nights at my sister’s and now I am leaving the dogs while I go off galavanting. There might be a visit to Connecting Threads Warehouse on Saturday if I have any money left!
When I decamped I brought along my sewing. I pre-cut projects so I could sew when the opportunity hit. I was trying to finish piecing Footnote for my June OMG. The other project is my monthly mystery blocks. On left are the 6 blocks to piece with the other 30 BOMs in the basket below. On the right are the pieces for the Footnote Blocks and extra fabrics.
So, just how much was I able to get done while at my sister’s? Finished the last 6 BOMs! I can’t wait until the layout reveal next month!
I got inventive with my creative space and limited tools. A TV tray for an ironing surface to my right and my art bin on the dining table to my left. Her spare bed was perfect for laying out my squares for arranging.
The above layout didn’t live, I realized I wasn’t succeeding in getting the circle effect I wanted. So I looked to the quilt pattern for inspiration.
I packed knitting for the down time while away. I am sure I over packed! LOL I have yarn for this hat and the red afghan square in progress. Don’t ask me when I will have time to knit, since I am riding solo I obviously can’t knit in the car. But we do plan on taking in an Eagle’s tribute band, so maybe then? Or if nothing else, if we are hanging out at her apartment.
So, how’s your Friday going?
