I’ve had a hiatus from Easy Street for the last week or so. I have had all the fabric sitting out waiting for me to finish cutting all the pieces, but other things clamoured louder for attention. Like some overdue swap items…
Aileen was my partner for the November Adventure Block swap. She kindly told me not to worry about getting the block done on time as I was on holiday. The only problem is that I am the kind of person who does everything at the last minute. So if someone tells me to take my time and get it done when I have time…. well I might never have time! Aileen wanted a wonky house block in bright, crazy colours. I hope this fits the bill. I figured that the rain drops that are rising instead of dropping add to the wonkiness.
And then when I told Joanne that I was going to be late with her December hexies, she said not to worry about doing them at all if I was too busy. Talk about letting me off the hook! But I try to be a good swapper and complete my commitments, even though sometimes they are late. So I made these hexies for Joanne this week.
Then the local craft club decided that we need to do a round of baby quilts to donate to the nursing station. And I had been looking at Persimon Dreams Project Quilting challenge and I was excited about the square in a square block. And I received a bag of scraps with around 150 blocks in yellow/orange, hot pink and a flower print. Pair these with a light blue and here is the baby quilt I’m working on! My only placement rules were alternating square in squares and solids and that no outside colour could go beside itself.
I thought I’d get all the blocks and rows sewn together this week after work but …..
And then I read a someone’s post for the Year of the Finished Project and they said the rules are that you have to finish a project before you start a new one. Whoops! Blew that. (But I reread the rules and each person actually makes their own rules for themselves. So all I have to do is finish the Easy Street top in January. Yikes!)
I will try and get back tomorrow with some recent mail that I need to show off
Oh and my e-mail wasn’t working from the 9th to the 15th – if you sent me an e-mail during that time and haven’t heard back….. I didn’t receive it.
