I know! WIP Wednesday going up on an ACTUAL Wednesday? Who am I anymore?
To be honest, I feel like I spend as much time pampering these Elves on the Shelves as sewing because of course we have TWO, and not just one that works overtime. Even our neighbor with 4 kids has only one elf to contend with. At least our elves aren’t mischievous – they just move around the living room and answer the fan mail from the kids.
In non-elf related news, I feel like I’m just biding time between Bonnie Hunter Allietare Mystery clues, so I’m sticking to smaller projects. I’m working on piecing the center for a Quilt of Valor based on the FQs and fabrics my mom and I picked up at Little Quilts over the weekend. That’s the shop that’s going out of business that Lynn and I talked about in the last episode of The Stitch. They still have a TON of Tula Pink and Kaffe Fasset fabrics left for anyone in the Atlanta area looking for a good deal. I think everything is 50% original price now.
I got asked on Instagram if all the reds were supposed to be pointing the same direction for those star centers. The honest answer is yes, if I had been paying attention, but some of the prints are so busy that I don’t think it matters, so they are being sewn together all whopperjawed.
It’s just occurring to me that may be a Midwest colloquial term my mother used when I was a kid. “Whopperjawed” means crooked, askew, or “not right”.
