I'm not finished, by a long shot. In fact, I've progressed to the move-messy stacks-from-place-to-place stage, expanding into the Other Half's territory. Which probably means that some things need to go. Out. Away. Never to return. That's what this week is for ......
In the meantime, the cutting table is finally clear.
The sewing table is finally clear.
|Ready to sew binding on Rock Island, Rock On|
Yesterday I cut the binding for "Rock Island, Rock On" (a/k/a/ Rock Island Campfires) using about 1/2 yard of fabric.
And after I got the binding sewed on, I began cutting strips from my scraps. I have 5-1/2", 3", 2-1/2", 2", and 1-1/2" piles. Why 5-1/2"? you might be asking. It's the size I use for "Mary's Triangles." They are really fun to make. I'll put together a tutorial this week, so check back if you are intrigued ....
|Still stripping, after all these years ......|
Small progress, but it's a start. I will be taking a box full of old magazines, some sewing room accessories, and several yards of fabric (previously counted out) for the freebie table at guild tomorrow. I am definitely in a de-accessioning mode, can you tell?
