Friday Night Spent Sewing!



I just couldn't stand it any longer, I had to go ahead and start it! Now you all know that I got a little crazy and cut 240 strips for a bigger quilt. So that will be 6 rows of 40 strips. I cut strips from all colors and patterns, threw them in a basket and then just started sewing them together how I pulled them out of the basket. I now have them sewn into strips of 2. Next I will sew them into strips of 4 and so on...



I have just now started sewing the strips of 4. Hopefully, I can get them all done before I go to bed tonight. I'm not sure how much I will get to work on it this weekend, it all depends on what Richard has planned. In the morning, Richard has a 8 hour refresher course for Mine Safety. So he will be gone most of the day, but I have to go to the grocery store and do my weekly shopping. I didn't go today because I just felt so bad and the boys were home sick again with me. I didn't figure we really needed to get out in the air too much. But we are running low on horse feed so I have to pick that up tomorrow also.



I noticed most of my BOM patterns for February are posted. I will have to buy some ink for the printer tomorrow so I can print them. I checked Planetpatchwork's for this month which will finish the top up. I think it said I needed like 50 of the 6 inch blocks and the borders. I'm sure this will take me a few weeks if not longer. But I can't wait to get this top done, I really like how it is turning out.



Well, I had better get back to sewing...

You go girl! I think I've changed my mind about the bargello. I have been looking at another of Bonnie's patterns for a few months that I just love. It's this one:

Hope you feel better soon.....
