It’s not a ‘Friday Night Sew In’, but I wish it was! Instead, I’m cutting my solid background strips for my upcoming test pattern class on Monday. I’ve been standing here pressing and cutting 3 yards of fabric. I’ve got my first cuts done: (5) 10×42, (7) 4×42, and (16) 2×42.
Next step is to sub-cut them into (10) 10×21, (13) 4×21, and (31) 2×21 strips.
But I’d much rather be pressing and cutting something that I could actually SEW tonight! I’ve had some Riley Blake ‘Boo To You’ in a bag in my sewing pantry for almost 2 years. I took it out tonight to stroke/fondle it, and I’d REALLY like to do something with it, but I need to be good and get these strips cut for class.
I cut my prints earlier in the week and it didn’t go so well. I posted about it here. *sigh* I’m still not over it! So far the solids are going much better…knock on wood!
I guess I’ll have to wait until the next Friday Night Sew in that Heidi and Bobbi host. It’s on Friday, September 21, and I hope to be sitting at my sewing machine busting out something for Halloween.
