Day 459 – or free fabric for me!


It came, it came!

A few weeks ago for Scraptastic Tuesday I won a gift certificate to Mad About Patchwork from Leanne @SheCanQuilt and Nicki @MrsSew&Sew. Since I have been bitching and moaning about the unavailability of Kona Iron in town (and the price when it is in town) I ordered some.

And I ordered some more green shot cotton for my soccer quilt and some stripey that was on sale, just because.

The Kona Iron will be sashing for my polaroid quilt of course.

The green is to be background for my soccer hexie. I had previously bought Kaffe Fassett “Moss” only to find it was too dark.


Then after a long phone conversation with Katy at MAP I thought I would try the lime. I’m going for soccer field green and I’m not sure this is right either…


Moss on the bottom, lime on top. I feel like Goldilocks right about now…

Yay for new fabric! Yay for free fabric! Linking up with Molli Sparkles!


Day 123

Full on kids today, so no sewing time for me. This evening though I dug out the last bit of my soccer hexie project to sew the last two arms to the main bit. One day there will be a WHOLE BIG post explaining the life of this project.

Day 77

Blergh, literally sick AND tired! Ha! Sorry – I grew up with my mom sometimes saying “I’m sick and tired of …..” And it was perhaps more frequent than sometimes.

Anyway, made good progress on soccer hexie v.4.5 Excited (again) about it, but there is no way it will be done in time to submit for QuiltCon, dammit.

Day 63

Went back to slow stitching tonight, inserting the black centres to the rosettes on my soccer quilt. Was indeed faster at sewing with less wine in me. At my current pace though it will take me another 12 hours to finish just this part. Sigh.

Still, it was sewing for 90 minutes. Definitely better than nothing.
