|Love that black background swirly fabric - this is the last of those scraps :(|
|That plaid is from a 99-cent Goodwill shirt I cut up - love those bright colors!!!|
|Don't you just love the "I Love You" fabric in the corner?|
By the end of the day, we each had completed about 47-48 blocks out of the 60 we need....
Three of us sewing as fast as we can sew....... and we still have an overflowing strip bin!!!!
Wow! I think it really is true that they multiply as quickly as you sew them up :*)
One more day of sewing string blocks, and then we will start on the large center nine-patches. This is a really fun project! But we did have one rather nasty casualty....
Yup, that's my finger!!!!
(Badly in need of a manicure too LOL!!!)
Somehow, while I was trying to get a pesky piece under the needle, my foot mashed down on the foot pedal before I was ready, and the needle went right into my finger!!! I thought at first that it had gone all the way through, but after examination this morning, the blood I saw at first on the other side must have bled from the front because there are no exit wounds :*D
And get this..... amazingly, the needle did not break and I just kept on sewing. After some peroxide and neosporin and a few bandages, that is! =^..^= So today it's a little sore, but really not as bad as you might think. Looks like that worn out manicure is going to have to wait to be refurbished until this little battle wound heals up though. I'll try to spare you any ugly finger photos until that is fixed :*)
Today, I plan to play in my YELLOW scraps for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
|Anybody recognize this little sunshiny friend? Also the last piece of this :(|
Hopefully I can finish up a few blocks without further casualties LOL!!!
What are you doing on this beautiful Saturday?
I'd love to know!!!
Hugs & Blessings!
