Good lord I don’t even want to look how long it’s been. And since I’m [nominally] in charge here I won’t.
School started yesterday. I like the return to routine. Although to be fair this summer had more routine than previous years, which was a good thing. By the end I didn’t even want to strangle anyone* and I also got to do some sewing.
I finished two tops, one blogged here, and one hiding under my bed. Since I’m on a bit of a streak AND September is my month to use my longarm, I’m aiming for a third top.
My guild inherited someone’s stash and offered it free with a caveat of making a charity quilt. I chose this incredibly awesome/terrible fabric and some black and white prints.
I added enough black and whites from my collection to have enough for a twin.
I’m aiming for something like this. This was my first attempt; I have since eliminated the fabric which reads as grey, I narrowed the orange strips and chopped all these sections in half.
I’m loving this one so far, and it’s really enjoyable to not be precise about sizes or matching corners like my last two quilts. And that fish fabric is just so hideously awesome isn’t it?! I’m pressing seams open on this one since nothing needs to match up and it’s an interesting change of pace to try that out†.
More sooner rather than later I hope.
* this was a joke. I’m not actually in danger of self-harm or infanticide.
