The only sewing that happened this past week looked like this.
I made parts of 9 patches,
lots of parts and pieces, blocks and framed blocks.
All for Garden Party #2.
Except that one piece by the Tootsie Roll!
That is my Oklahoma Backroads leader/ender.
2 more blocks went into the l/e box.
(***The advantage of blog photos is seeing where you need to unstitch.
That dark green on the left is sooo wonky!)
After last Monday's blog post,
I packed my car and headed to Crystal's house to stay with 4 kiddos while they vacationed.
Let me tell you,
after 4 days, I was one tired Gramma!
But we had lots of fun.
Saturday I spent most of the day in my sewing room.
At the end of the day,
I had a good pile of pieces and parts sewn.
In my basket I have 30 framed 9 patches,
30 more waiting to be framed and
the bed of my machine has a lot more ready for the next steps.
These tools are usually on the bed of the machine.
I call them the tools of my trade.
I can't live without my reverse tweezers for pulling threads.
The stiletto is the skinny extension of my chubby finger!
Bonnie shared the instructions on her blog here.
I was shopping at Winco one day after she posted this.
I always buy canning lids when I shop there.
As I was getting my lids, out of the corner of my eye,
I saw packages of the turkey lacer things.
Marked down to 25¢ for a package of 8.
I don't remember how many packages there were.
I took them all.
Lots of friends now own stilettos. 😉
