CGQC finsh for Sept. Yea! One down...many more to go.
All of the Sewful Sisters promised we would finish piecing our tablecloths for tonight's meeting. Here's mine!
This was really quite a challenge to finish up. I had all the block completed so Saturday meant squaring up those blocks and sewing on sashing. But we all know it's never that simple. For one thing these were the fabrics I bought Friday so that I could start sewing early Saturday. Aren't they so pretty and go so well together?
But that dark didn't do what I wanted. (darn!) First thing Saturday I needed to go to the fabric store and get ANYTHING that would be lighter. Only Saturday morning found me helping my wonderful hubby do a little work. (That's not the way this is suppose to go!) Then he wanted to go by the Harley Shop. Okay the motorcycle ride and the donut were good but I ought to be shopping for fabric!
So off to the fabric store we go and along the way we see a Farmer's Market. Do you see the way this is going? After the Farmers Market and a few pounds of fruit, we did make it to the fabric store. I bought a lovely green from the Origins line. Arriving home at lunch time our little daughter begged to go to Chick-Fil-A. Who could say no to that? We finally get back home around 1 pm and I started squaring up those blocks. It was a typical "get up and sew first thing Saturday morning" with Saturday morning gone before I knew it. LOL!!!
The sun was shinning right on the fabric - so it's hard to see the blocks clearly. It certainly brightens up our dinningroom. I'm so please with it. Tonight I'll see how the Sewful Sisters plan on quilting it.
I've always loved sewing. I remember being about 4 sitting on floor hand stitching doll dresses, while my mother sewed on her sewing machine. I couldn't wait to be big enough to use the sewing machine! Now I work full time and try to sew daily, but other fun stuff gets in the way. You know, like swimming and camping. Sometimes reading or watching movies. Grandkids, BBQ's, walking the dogs. You get the picture.
