Very busy sewing day today! The morning started with working on the Civil War quilt. Block one is done.
I finally finally finally finished sewing 60 string blocks for Bonnie Hunter's Roll Roll Cotton Boll (RRCB) mystery quilt. Whew! I am so happy to be done with these!!!! I did use up a ton of random neutral scraps that more than likely would have moldered in shoe boxes or be tossed out in a cleaning fit but I was determined to finish these up today because it made such a mess. Bits and pieces of fabric everywhere, bits of pieces of paper everywhere, threads and threads and threads everywhere. Bleh! Now everything is tidied up and vacuumed and just better.
I still have 90,000 half-square triangles to finish piecing. Well really around 300 or less. I hope it's less.
Not to be forgotten is the le petite project for this month "Mon Ami" Schnibble. I dug out an older Minick & Simpson line "Nantucket" and am going to work on this tomorrow.
Oh yes tomorrow is a holiday for me. Why January 3rd? Well originally state workers were to have Dec. 31st off but then someone discovered that we were given too many holidays for 2010. And because the world as we know it would end people if GA state workers had one more holiday in 2010, they moved it to Jan. 3rd. I took Dec. 31st off as annual leave just for spite and to have a four-day weekend.
So yes tomorrow is another sewing day. Perhaps another pj day too (I promise they are clean pjs. Really we do have some standards around here).
