Well, here we are again, Friday. You sneak up on me and I feel like I haven’t done anything for about 7 days. For two days in a row I’ve gone home and just crashed in a slump. I blame yesterday on one of the HBO’s showing Death Becomes Her, a movie I haven’t seen in YEARS and I couldn’t resist watching! I also was shocked because I never realized #1 the guy in that is Bruce Willis, #2 his wife is Meryl Streep and #3 that even funnier as an adult.
Tonight, I am hoping that some sewing will get in. We’re having to make a Sam’s run and we need to do some serious cleaning around the house.
THIS JUST IN!
My goat (yes I have a goat!) Just had her first kid!
isn’t that just sweet?
Anyhow, I’m hoping to maybe get home a tiny bit early, maybe if I start on cleaning up it’ll be done faster and I can sew!
Have a nice weekend everyone!
I swear, even on a 3 day weekend I get no sewing done. None! Not even a little bit! But I did on Thursday…or Friday. I honestly can’t remember which one it was now. I mean I did do other things, like we went fishing and went to my mother-in-law’s for some bbq and pool side activities…Monday we watched movies literally all day. Battlefield Earth (I love that stinking movie. I have no idea why.) The Amazing Spiderman, The Ref, Gangster Squad; if it was on we watched it.
The last time I was in my sewing room I did get some things done though. See, how I’ve got these strips going I’ve got a dark brown and tan, a tan and yellow, and a dark brown and yellow. When their powers combine, it takes the form of, a chevron!! (you know…once I get them all cut into 5 1/2 x 5 1/2″ squares and tilt them back n forth and what not) I got all of the dark brown and yellow squares cut out.
So far I have 120 squares and by my first calculation I only needed 100 or so squares. Well, I kind of forgot a “row” I guess you could say. it’s 9 squares across for a row, but it’s also 8 across for the other…row…I don’t know what you’d call that. Then it’s 11 high and I suppose 10 high? SO I need like, a billionty more squares. I felt like 100 squares was a little small. I laid them all out and it only covered half the quilt, so yea, need more than 100 squares. Anyhow, I’m hoping once I get home tonight I can get some *MORE* squares cut.
I did have some help measuring out and getting these squares situated though.
