Shannon had been bugging me to start a new project (oh, just find a diy stuff website and pick something!) so I decided to get back to work on one that we’d started in June 2007 and put away indefinitely. The quilt. Remember? Me either, almost. Until we moved and all those bags (I think 6) of old t shirts that haven’t even been cut yet appeared. This was started so long ago I didn’t even have a blog then. So!
I laid out all the blocks onto a duvet cover in some sort of order and started pinning them all together. It’s very haphazard and crooked, but when I sew the strips of patches together, I am hoping it sort of looks ok. I’m not even doing proper seams, just lots of raw edges, the black fabric always on top.
Picture taken from the loft, which is why the perspective is off. I don’t know what’s going to happen on the back, but I can decide when the time comes. I also ended up switching a bunch of blocks after I took this picture. My sewing machine is going to have quite a workout!
Other good news? Donna, the white fish that survived, seems to have become good pals with the little red fish that survived. They swim side by side a lot and seem to hold hands. Well, maybe not that cute, but it’s still good to see them both relaxed and happy.
In not so good news, Ashley’s dog Puppers has gone missing. He’s a little weiner and he needs his meds. Not that I expect that this will help his trek, but if anyone that reads my blog lives in her area, please, PLEASE keep your eyes peeled for a little white scruff ball.
