Nothing bad like letting a deer run into my car or nothing like succumbing to my desires and buying a new car......but bad none the less.....I started a new project! OMGosh.....I am a nightmare to anyone with OCD. I can't even count how many projects I have in various stages of completion and prefer not to attempt that task.
But but but, it's a necessary diversion from my cross stitching frustration. I have an excuse (of course I do, we justify our crafting). I signed up for a BOM at the Intrepid Thread back in January. I opened the package for Part One as soon as it arrived. It then it sat on the counter, was moved to the stairs and finally landed my cutting table.... I got an email notice that the second installation the was being shipping and it has arrived. Yikes! I had to start work on Part One because Part Two is here, right? Besides it is a wintertime type project for early evenings and cold weather - more justification, I know.
The fabrics are beautiful and the photo really doesn't show how pretty, the instructions are super great.....so up the stairs I went after dinner. I took a nice cup of coffee and my iPad. I set up the iron and ironing board, pressed the fabric, sharpened my rotary cutter and started cutting the pieces. I listened to some Kenny G, yes, Kenny G.
Swaying to the music and I cut the first three series of pieces and before I knew it, it was an hour and a half later. Do I have any business starting a ANOTHER quilt? Not really. Here are the telltale scrapes from truing up the fabric.
These instructions are super great for cutting.
All these rulers and I am missing the one I need for part three.
