Back in October, the plan was to add a light green (more like lime) Scrap Jar Star to the group.
Well, it's not done but it is cut. That counts for something right?
I cut more scraps to kit another project. Don't know the name (I call it Quarter Star for now) but I'm in love with it.
I believe I have enough for a large quilt or maybe even two small quilts in here ... and I'm not done. I haven't looked into the red scrap basket or the orange one yet.
This is the block ...
and this is the result.
I blame Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict (scroll down a little) for my sudden obsession. Hahaha! I had to look at some videos on how to cut the Half Rectangles Triangles unit. You have to know the trick of the trade to do this one. Funny unit but I'm hooked. I'm even thinking of making one with flannel.
This search for scraps for the Quarter Star prompted me to declutter the sewing room a bit.
This is what's at the bottom of the design wall. :^( Shame.
I did sew the label onto Field of Poppies (Good Fortune). There are still lots of thread ends to be dealt with but other than that it is done!
I haven't jumped on the wagon of Chilhowie that Bonnie is so generously giving as a Mystery Quilt because I am not sewing. I am keeping all the directions though. I'll see in January if I need a Chilhowie or not.
So, what's the reason I am not sewing? First reason: I finished Field of Poppies! I need to baste another quilt to quilt but I don't know which one. I'm stuck! Next week, I have two days off. Hopefully, I'll get my act together and get something done.
Second reason: I am training two new employees, yes, two at the same time. It's draining my energy but at the same time, it is a relief because they'll be doing my job. We were three Team Assistants doing the work of five. Soon (hopefully), there will be five of us again. Yay! They are fast learners and they are doing very well so far. To train them, I have to work from the head office, which is a 45-minute drive one way. When I get home, I'm brain-dead but happy. All this has been accompanied by an increase in my salary ... but a decrease in my sewing time and energy. Oh well, it's temporary. :^)
This is not much blog-post-worthy but I wanted to come in and say hi.
Hope you all have a great week.
