|Farmer's Wife Block 39, Friendship|
The most difficult part was picking out the fabrics. So now my collection of 6" sampler blocks looks like this:
|6" Sampler Blocks as of 8/8/16|
But I'm not making another block today. It's Monday and I do have some work to get done and then, instead of starting a new quilt block, I'm resolving to clean up enough work space to finally cut out that skirt. You know, the one I barely started in June of 2015. Ugh. Procrastination, anyone?!!
|The Fabric: Pretty Potent Echinachea in Preppy, Cotton Voile by Anna Maria Horner for Westminster Fabrics|
|The Pattern: New Look 6708 (OOP)|
After spending about $78 on the pattern, fabric, lining, interfacing, thread, and notions, and fretting about the waistband yoke thingy that was weirdly shaped (or else I'M weirdly shaped!), I ran out of steam AFTER redrafting the waistband to fit me in muslin, but BEFORE cutting out the skirt from the real fabric. I set the project aside almost exactly a year ago, the week before Anders' 12th birthday (he turns 13 this Saturday) and then got caught up with back-to-school, and then it was Fall and this was a Summer skirt...
It is SO NICE to be able to come back to this blog and use the search feature and key word tags to refresh my memory about where I was with the skirt project and what my game plan was. Before I had a blog I would have jotted down notes on scrap paper or Post-It notes, and they would be long gone by the time I came back to the project; I'd have to start all over from square one.
Ah, well -- I had planned for this to be a short and sweet post this morning. Whatever. I'm linking up with:
