My challenge now is to stay busy from this stash. I am going to pledge not to revisit any fabric stores until after we hear about Tim's job... he's got the interview on Wednesday, and could possibly hear by Friday... say prayers! MANY, MANY PRAYERS!!! This job would get us out of our moldy house and out of this town and (hopefully) into a HOME that we would OWN!
I was good today, too-- I sorted my fabric in an attempt to fit it all in my two storage carts (FAIL). During this process, I came across some really ugly fabric.
The answer: Hidden Wells. I have never made this pattern, Ever. So, why not pull out a couple other *special* fabrics?
|When they won't play nicely with each other, throw them in the wells!|
To the cutting!
|They look better already.|
|Bad lighting doesn't help the colors any.|
The process was simply enough. By number four here, I had one well all lined up perfectly! Yay! But, given that I was using the Uglies, I didn't care enough to rip the others apart to fix small spots where they weren't perfect.
|Better light... still not "pretty," though.|
I might just leave it this size and add it to the collection of orphans. I have some random flying gees, a shoo-fly, and an oddly-sized grandmother's basket thus far, plus a collection of sewn strips ends. Why not make an entire Ugly Quilt?
Perhaps I will ponder that. As long as it doesn't keep me awake!
Goodnight. Time for a late snack, and then to fall upon the delight that is our Tempurpedic mattress!
