I am getting some projects done. Today I sewed up Marja's spiderweb block for the 6"-12" mini swap group. I really enjoyed going through my scraps to put this block together....it was a trip down memory lane reminding me of past projects and some people I had not thought of in a long while.
A bit ahead of the game, I also got Mary's block for Buzz Cuts July. Mary asked for stars in 12.5", 9.5" or 6.5". She very generously sent lots of great fabric. I, however, mis-cut, misjudged, mis-sewed, mis-everything and only had enough to do one 12.5" block. Even then, I ran out of the fabric and had to improvise. Even though it did not come out as planned, I really do like the finished block.I took on a new assignment at work that will send me to the SE side of Pittsburgh area every other week from now until, oh, mid-September. No fabric / quilt store nearby (at least that google.com came up with). So, in lieu of sewing maybe I'll take up some knitting or find a place to volunteer at while I am there. I am not really looking forward to being gone so much of the summer but it's a good opportunity and, in this economy, I'm hesitant to say "no" when higher ups ask me to consider a project.
