PROGRESS!! This week is all about progress. I have made some serious progress this week on OLD projects that have been taking up space in my sewing room. I read a blog by Madam Samm about setting a timer and while I haven't done it literally I have pushed myself to work 30 min a day on a project, knowing that it will often turn into an hour (or five yesterday!) or more of work on my WIP's. All that dedication is paying off.
Yesterday I had a marathon sew and finished this top:
I headed out as the sun was setting and it was clouding up and ready to rain...and I thought it would be perfect to get a photo. And then BAM the sun was out. It lit this up like a stained glass and I loved it so much I put it in here. You can also see my seams and my anal pressing for this one!!!
Then I took it across the street and used my neighbors fence (as I always do when I want a good quality picture when the sun is out) and then the wind started blowing. Oh well. :) It's a good representation of what the quilt is. I set it on point (my first time and setting triangles are a bit...finicky. Even with lots of starch) and I did color stripes. I like it!!!
And then there is the quilt from H-E-Double-Hockey sticks.
This is one quilt I am glad is nearly finished. I need to give it a good pressing and then I'm going to add a border (I'm thinking of the white/multi polka dot print) so it is twin size (it's about 8" too short). I intend for it to be the punk's "big girl bed" quilt!!
There has been no progress on the snoopy quilt. Maybe later this week!!
