It was bound to happen... all my chickens coming home to roost at the same time and that day being one in which I have about 1.5 hours of sewing time. (I'm actually supposed to be eating, changing my clothes and getting out the door again, but I can do a lot with a cheese sandwich in one hand, and they've all seen me without make-up on before anyway.)
I'm making twice the number of 6.5" sampler blocks for both of Jenifer Dick's samplers, Modern Monday and Traditional Tuesday . I've gotten into the habit of sewing two blocks for both these sampler blocks on Tuesdays. I rather enjoy comparing the two techniques to make the same block. All I had time for today was the Modern Monday blocks.
Tuesday is also the day Jo posts her latest Crumb-Along instructions, which I started out sewing on Tuesdays and eventually moved to later in the week because I like to include sewing string blocks for my String Quilt project and found I couldn't do it all on the same day as the weekly sampler blocks.
Today is the 25th of the month, so the Bloggers' BOM block has been posted. And I was planning on getting it done right away and making more bright scrappy nine patches for a Sister's Choice project I'm making with strips from the same bin. Yeah...well...so much for planning.
And today is also the start of 12 Days of Christmas Sampler Quilt-Along . The first block has been posted. It's really cute, but it's paper pieced and fussy-cut... which has me doing the ol' take one step back and melt into the crowd shimy. I've decided, with regret, that I really do have too much on my plate so will probably not be doing this one afterall.
Got to run now.
