i'v finally got my baggies of strips all done and set up for my starting to sew them together. they're just sitting there mocking me while i have to go about normal life and and st. patricks day stuff still (a family of irishmen and women lol) and...and...and. today started spring break and besides my own 5 kids, and my 2 grandsons (ages 4 and 2) i will be having another 2 and 4, 5 and 6 yr old join us for the week. you think i am gonna be getting to get those strips together? you bet i am!!! where there is a will, there is a way, and boy howdy, i have the will!!!
we are also on the switch of winter to spring clothes duty. like that isn't an enormous task in and of itself! BUT, now that the extra 4 are gone for the day, and the grands too, it is FINALLY my turn! i am going to go lock myself away in my room and sew at least a few sets together.....there are just so pickin many of them! and, when i add that i am making the center 21 or 23 blocks square (i forget how many) so that i can make a matching baby quilt to go along with the wedding quilt--oh my gosh!!! why do i do these things to myself??!!
the big pile of zip locks looks daunting, but it is never gonna get smaller if i don't get off here and get started on the sewing is it??? my problem is committing to which sewing machine that i want to use. i just got a new to me 1948 singer 15-91 and it is just begging me to stitch with that. the problem there is that i have to move stuff around to accommodate it, and that also postpones my stitching.....what's a girl to do? make a cuppa lemon lift tea and mull it over whilst eating some amazing homemade shortbreads. that's what!
