So there I was, happily starting to cut fabric for my Stitch Tease block that I need to make for Danny - Mommy for Reals.

All that dark fabric.
Oh Danny, you'll find out what I have done in 12 months time. Ha!
Next thing I know Emily wanted an idea of something to do and I suggested make something. Never did the words fabric and sewing cross my lips but before you could say 'boo' I was no longer cutting for me but cutting and pressing for Em. What on earth was I thinking when I suggested she 'make something'?! She wants to do a stack and whack quilt. I am sure that those two girls of mine must have about a dozen projects on the go. They are more adept at creating WIPs than I am!
|Emily's favourite fabric ever is that dragonfly fabric.|
We are almost finished the yardage I bought.
She is going to be devastated when it is done.
So with little happening here constructively today - for me at least - I thought I would tell you that I have my courses for the FQ Retreat. Thanks so much to the Fat Quarterly team - Tacha in particular - because I completely stuffed up filling in the form for class preference and managed to put them in the opposite order of how I wanted them. Therefore I got quite a shock when I looked at what classes I had and they were all from the bottom of my list. Tacha to the rescue and now I have Portholes, Clasp Purses, Freezer Paper Piecing and the FQ Design Challenge. Phew! Things I really wanted to do. Happy me!
And do you remember the problems I had with my original Go! Baby so many months ago? (Brief summary - the actual Go! was showing big signs of wear and the cutting mat looked like it had been attacked by a rottweiller after minimal use.) Well, I thought you deserved a little bit of an update. Because I have used my new Go! Baby, that was sent as a replacement, on a fairly regular basis since that drama and want to tell you that everything seems so much better. I have cut more with the new Baby and cutting mat than I ever did with the first one and the difference in wear is noticeable. Extremely so.
And I have nothing else to report. Just waiting for bed time. How sad is that?!
