My Little Squares
This was what it looked like behind my sewing machine last night. I went up to sew at 8:30, because I really needed to do SOMETHING other than sit in the recliner and fall asleep. I started on clue four and for the first few minutes I was whining to myself that I really just wanted to go back downstairs and sleep in front of the t.v. Then I got into it and before I knew it, it was 9:30! I considered sewing even longer, except I needed the instructions for the rest of the clue and they were downstairs and I was too lazy to get them.
While I was sewing these, I was thinking about the owl quilt I made a couple months ago. Those polka dot fabrics would be cute little owls. Problem is, they are from a jelly roll, so they would be baby owls! haha. I am thinking of making a quick wall hanging. We shall see what happens...
Looking forward to seeing Mary and my little retreat in a week. We are just meeting up for a couple days and plan to sew like fiends. I'm thinking of creating a top similar to one I saw in a quilt shop. It is all squares, but sewn on top is a group of raw edge hearts that have the edges snipped so they will fray. Still thinking about it.
