It has been pointed out to me that I am quieter than normal this week. No worries happening, just been busy. Mostly in the car. In the car to the school. In the car to the dentist (repeatedly). In the car to dance. In the car to the secondary school while Helen does transfer week. Just been in the car a lot.
Therefore I have not been at my sewing machine. At all.
I have got a little done here and there though, in the car. Most of the hand quilting on the diamond hexies is about done. I am rather pleased with it as I think the stitching completely changes the way it looks.
Another thing I had to turn my mind to is the In the Frame Purse Swap. I have a partner! Oh boy, do I have a partner. In the 'wow, she is so good' sort of way. I need to pull my finger out and do something good here. With that in mind I cut some hexie papers today and started pulling fabric. Then I started basting them. In the car of course.
This time I basted my epp without sewing through the papers, just stitching the corners. I think I have found the method that works for me. It was quick, easy and I like it. I have a number more to do but this is a start. I used the Go! Baby to cut the hexie papers. I find it much easier to use it to cut the papers than the fabric. The fabric doesn't need to be precise, the papers do. And I cut hundreds of hexies today in different sizes. Because I was doing some for a friend as well.
A care package is being sent out to help in a project she is doing. She needed hexie papers and eye spy type fabrics. I hope that what I had proves to be useful to her.
Tomorrow is more of the same. Dentist (me this time and that's enough said) again. Multiple school runs. Brownies. If you are looking for me I'll be in the car.
