So, why do I read blogs? Because you know I am going to end up in trouble with my bank account!!! On Thursday I got caught down the rabbit hole due to Roseanne and Julie. So now I have 5.5 yards of fabric coming and a new pouch pattern to play with! Wait, there’s nothing bad about this, this is a happy occurrence. LOL! I got this lovely olive, a Jo Morton piece, and this wide back from Kim Diehl at PF. And I love the whimsical patterns from Hilltop Custom Designs! So I guess this was a win win day for reading blogs?
I hope to be sewing along with The Crafty Quilter starting this weekend with her Disappearing 9 Patch project. I wasn’t sure what color scheme I was going with until I saw her prep. I am decided. Pulled out the patriotic fabric today to get ready for the start. I used some of the reds for the Heart table runner I made back in Jan/Feb.
In other Patriotic sewing I started the small challenge for a FB group. Instead of one 10.5″ block I am making 4 and will arrange them similar to one of my favorite minis, Anthem, without the stripped sashing. When I started this project I had planned on using a different background around the center star, but didn’t have enough for 4 blocks. I am OK with the paisley I subbed in, but I still think I will make a pillow front with just the red stars, the dark blue, and the cream. This is my Squirrely DrEaMi this month!
Dinner Thursday night was awesome! My first attempt at Philly Cheesesteaks! I picked up some shaved beef and veggies at the grocery. I got all that going in the sauté pan and then had the great idea to steam my hoagie rolls over the splatter guard. Perfect!!! Then I loaded the buns with the meat/veggies and added provolone cheese, then broiled them to a cheesy gooey mess! Yum yum!
So, how’s your Friday going?
