This week, I did a lot of sewing, yet officially logged very little since lots of those projects aren’t finished yet. Allietare top, back, and binding is done and ready to quilt. Another quilt for a pattern I’m writing is ready for quilting, as is a tablerunner/topper for a pattern Lynn wrote that I tested. Lots of stuff queued up! I think I can get the tablerunner/toppers and Stray Cat Strut quilted this week.
For actual finishes, I needed to recover my pressing board because it was super gross and weird looking, and could stand up by itself when I peeled the old one off from the starch! Here’s my new one, which I’m getting used to since the design sometimes shows through what I’m pressing.
I also finished a series of fabric bins – one for my bathroom drawer to corral the ever growing collection of “hair doodles” I need to maintain the massive amount of hair sprouting from my head now. Another is for my strips for the Scrappy Trips blocks I’ve been trimming up, and a third is a general project bin that fits inside the top of my travel sewing machine tote to make it easier to pack and unpack that for classes and sew-ins. Original sketch on Instagram, and here’s the finished bins:
- Used this Week: 2.25 yards
