Stashbusting Report

No a huge amount of fabric busted from the stash  this week – just two yard sfor borders and binding since I’m working on some projects already in progress.  So net busted 119.75

I did finish sewing the top for Crocus Clusters.  It’s hard to get a photo of it since it’s large and I can’t back up enough in the sewing room, but I slapped it up on the wall – none too smoothly since it kept threatening to fall down since it’s larger than the design wall – and quickly snapped some photos.







And here’s my pickings from the garden today – prewashed so a little dirty looking.  I kept thinking my peppers would never get ripe and then I remembered I planted a kind, whose name I can’t remember, that is a pale green and more long than a bell pepper.  So these will be part of a salad tonight.  I’m finally getting lots of green little tomatoes on the plants so there’s hope for some of those some day.


Just in the nick of time

I have actually accomplished what I set out to do as my Saturday project.  Crocus Clusters is now a finished top — finished at 11:50 p.m. — still on Saturday but cutting it close. 🙂    And it went together very nicely EXCEPT…. I had the top sewn into two halves with the sashing attached and joined that last seam.  Laid it out on the floor and then had to say many bad words because I half flipped on half upside down.  Yes rippit rippit rippit.   But once I took it apart and fixed, the borders went on great.  I’m always a bit worried when adding pieced borders to plain ones — were all those seam allowances right? will it fit?  Yep no adjustment at all needed.  They fit perfectly. WHEW!   I’ll take pictures in the light of day.

Also thank you Aurora for letting me know the EQ file for Spring at the Crossroads was downloading with a notecard error.  I’ve deleted the link and marked it temporarily unavailable.  I’m not sure why it’s doing that since my original file opens fine.  Even tried reloading but still an error so when I get time I’ll try to figure out what the problem is.
