As I mentioned in a previous (ok, really old) post, I talked about
my new/old cutting table. Normally, the table is in the middle of the room and working piles are scattered around. Not this week. The cutting table has been in the closet for over a week and the room looks strangely clean. I hope to change that this weekend by sewing.
Yes, I am able to sew today, because the machine is back. I picked it up on my way from Grama’s. The boys are gone at a band review (I really should go to one of those sometime) so the laundry and I will have the house to ourselves.
The Russian Rubix is on one of the design walls – all the little octagons crammed together jockeying for space. On the other design wall is the Attack of the Hexies.
One plan is to pick a background for the Attack of the Hexies. I received the grey i ordered and it is the wrong grey. It is the darker version of the grey I used in the A-B-C Challenge (HAP 207 S not HAP 207 LS). I hope the company will let me return it, otherwise I’ll be calling Candy’s Quiltworks to see if they still have the one I want. I am not hopeful, so I have to plow through some of my other fabrics and see what will work with what grey I have.
My other idea is from the new Scrumptious line. It is a green stripe and there are a couple of things that concern me.
One, it is a stripe. What if all the stripes going in different directions drives me crazy?
It is a Moda fabric. I love the Moda designs, often, but I don’t love the way the fabric ravels. I am not sure I could stand working with it again on such a large project.
I do like that it is different.
