While my plan last Monday was to continue working on Easy Street, something shiny caught my eye. I am so easily distracted and it becomes so easy to procrastinate the big jobs and start something new. My something new was this UFO from June 2011. I'm proud of myself for working on a UFO and not starting one of the many new projects that I want to do.
I was putting some fabric away and I spotted the bin that held Hopscotch, Butterscotch. All the parts were there, including my Adventures with Leaders & Enders by Bonnie Hunter. So Easy Street has been pushed aside. With several blocks already complete, I quickly added sashing and made a 3 x 4 setting. Then I started working on the border pieces. I had decided to take the remaining block pieces and use them on the back so I made up 7 more blocks. What the heck, may as well make 1 more block and set it at 4 x 5.
I spent some quality sewing time and when I add 1 more strip to the top and bottom border, then sew them on, this top will be complete. The instructions have you using 2" strips and I remember at the time I didn't have very many but my 2 1/2" bin was overflowing so I redrafted the block to use my strips.
I do think I should add some glitter to Easy Street and get that one finished this week before it turns into a UFO.
