Tomorrow I have my carpal tunnel surgery. Instead of working on one of my UFOs, I decided to join a lot of other people at quiltville chat and sew up a Scrappy Bargello quilt top instead of watching the Super Bowl. Here are 5 of my panels on the design wall but now all 6 are sewn together. It's a bit short so after I am healed up, I plan on making the top longer. I think I want to add at least 12 more inches and maybe more for a bed size quilt.
I know of 2 people that will not like this top (you know who you are C & S!!) They are the matchy, matchy girls. They very seldom step over the "reach in, grab it and sew it together" line. I love seeing how it turns out. Sometimes I like it, sometimes I love it and sometimes I wonder what I was thinking. But this one I like. I like it alot. It has movement, surprise fabrics and I used lots of my 2 1/2" strips.
Now my machine is put away. The ironing board is folded up and things are somewhat neat. I'm going to go through some sewing withdrawls but I'll be OK. I have a stack of books to read and I can play on the computer. I'm setting my sites on 2 weeks before I try to peice something. Because I have a project waiting to be started. They only cutting that is involved is thread.
I hope I don't drive everyone batty.........well, no more than normal!
