Here are my Spools strip sets all ready to go. I love getting them up on my design wall, because one or two always stand out as not playing well with the others. I see you, and no, you can't be in my quilt.
The next step for me is to get the white background strips attached to the sides of each "thread" unit. I am doing this all assembly line style, and find the process goes quite quickly. Do any of you have progress updates you would like to send me? I'd love to share your pictures on my blog! Thelma had an email and photo from Annette at Sunshine Yellow of Annette's finished Spools quilt. Check it out.
This week has provided very little opportunity for sewing. The family has been very immersed in birthday related activities for the baby, and the baby's mom has had to work extra hours to prepare for a big event at work, so that means Nana needs to put in more time babysitting. Add in the hours I care for Grandpa (who is doing great by the way) and keep up my own house, there just has not been a spare minute. My book club is meeting at my house Friday morning, and you all know there is nothing like having a bunch of women over to your house to make you look at things with a very critical eye. How did those blinds ever get so dusty? What is with the streaky mirrors? Ozzie! Did you do that?
I do have a little project I managed to put a couple of hours in on while Baby E napped this week. Turns out Sinta at Pink Pincushion is working on the exact same thing. I can tell. But it's a secret for a few more days. Betcha can't guess...
