My Mama joined me yesterday as I eschewed responsible adult activities like housecleaning and sat myself at Lennie the Featherweight and proceeded to sew the day away. I was and still am in a piecing mood…never mind the quilting part. Give me piecing or give me death! Or something like that.
I finished up the top today and, while I really like the end product, the blocks themselves were utter bee-otches. Like a roomful of premenstrual women who’ve run out of Midol and chocolate.
I pieced this from a bargain basement charm pack ($5) and stash. Hey, Julianne, do the reds look familiar? They should since you sent them to me! My Mama dubbed this one very ‘Japanese’ which I assume means tranquil which can be further interpreted as ‘totally not Stephanie’. I admit it’s definitely not my usual but it’s growing on me. Kind of like a fungus only without the fuzzies and anti-fungal meds.
We are now roughly one month away from the start of school. Can you hear the heavenly hosts singing? Oh, wait, haha, that’s me. There’s a quilt retreat in the works, but I’ll save that for another post.
Brace yourselves, it’s almost Monday.
