Yesterday, I sewed up my boxed stars with sashing. I am not lovin' it, but it's done. I changed the sashing fabric, and I am questioning myself on the change. Should I have stayed with my first colour choice, or not??? Then, I thought, if I had stayed with the first choice, I would be woundering if I should have went with the second!!
Then I realized I do not have enough of the green for the border, so I knew I had to change that. But anyways, it is sitting on my design wall, and my daugher comes in. I ask her what she thinks? She says, "I don't know.... what's wrong with this blk???" and then goes "OH!! I see, this is wrong, the point is the wrong way!!" One of the 4 little blks, when I sewed it all together, I turned it around!!! I asked her to check the others and see if she sees anything else. She does!!!
So I have 2 blks I need to fix now. When she found the 2nd one, I laughed and said, "Nope, they are staying like that!!" but, I know I can't leave it.... so I am going to be unsewing today.
Funny how you can be looking at this thing all day, and not see what you've done!!! And I had to look at them alot!! oh well.
After I got the sashing on the blks, I pulled out the Double Delight and am now working on that. I will unsew, after I've got step 5 done.
I took the green fabric that I had thought I would use for the boxed stars, and put it on a pile to maybe make 'Jared Takes a Wife' quilt from Bonnie Hunters site. I am not doing it now!! But I can plan and make a kit.......
So, after I un-sew and fix, and step 5 is done, my Goose Tracks is next, then....... *heavy sigh* I have to get some PhD's worked on. Out of sight, out of mind, and that is just not right......... I love starting new!! But after a couple days, new isn't 'new' anymore - and I like my PhD's!!! (Projects Half Done!! When I told my guild this one, I loved to hear the laughter!!!) "I can't this weekend, I'm sorry, I'm working on my PhD. Maybe next weekend, but I've got to get this done!!" Sounds way better than "I'm working on my UFO's"
And with that, I am going to go watch "The View", then off to talk to a lady about ........ I might have job today..... And I am scared about it. Very scared. It's a woman who is starting a quilt shop in town, and she has made comments about me teaching!!!! WHAT??!!??! Anyways, she has also talked of working in the store and honestly, I am just scared. She said come talk to me on Tuesday, and it's Tuesday....... So, I am going to finish my tea and get ready and talk......
