Jack Johnson is my current soundtrack to life.
One goes out... The first grade's fundraiser gala project:
Carrot-stamped + embroidered napkins!
Children stamped and embroidered. I "fixed" their embroidery (scruched stitches, wild lines...), matched two napkins together and sewed around the perimeter. Ta-da! Double-sided napkins with embroidery thread safely tucked inside!
For another fundraiser gala project, see the third grade's walnut-dyed quilt (posts here and here, pics here).
One comes in...
I made my own "jelly roll" of 2.5-inch strips.
There is something soooo soothing about ironing and rotary cutting.
Don't ask me the yardage. I used remnants and scraps and didn't even figure my exact needs for the quilt. I figure I'll use leftovers in binding or some undreamed future project.
"Sunkissed" by Moda in five-inch chunks tops my roll like whipped cream or citrus syrup!
It's the Spliceosome Quilt top all cut set for planning and piecing!
