Since my grand plan for April is focused on new t-shirts for myself.
I was contemplating (procrastinating) on how to perfect the fit of my shirt
and decided to squeeze in some piecing time.
After all, when I get into full blown t-shirt mode,
there will be no sewing anything else.
You understand that focus thing, right?!?
I don't really have anything going at the moment so I pulled out my tumbler leaders/enders bin.
I gave my progress the once over and remembered someone said
they were doing a border with their darks.
So I got out my seam ripper,
made myself a little add on room and got busy.
I needed more variety so I got out a stack of I want it gone fabric and started cutting.
In the process of cutting, I added lots more pieces to my string bin.
That's a good thing.
I also learned just how sharp those blades are in the dies.
That wasn't a good thing.
I got a bit more life out of this cutting mat
and then I heard it snap.
It's now waiting for the garbage man to take it to it's new home.
Thank goodness I had another one to use.
I need to add a new one to my shopping list.
When I took my bins in to put them away,
I had to sit down and sew just for a little while.
I now have a nice long string of tumbler pairs to press.
I love a good leader/ender project gone awry.
Next up at the Go cutter is this pile of I want it gone fabrics.
What will they become???
I probably will cut tumblers from some of them
and I have an apple core die that needs to be used again
and of course, I will create more strings.
What's on your design wall? I'm headed to Patchwork Times
this morning to see what others are working on.
