In which I talk (really quickly!) about sorting, organizing, quilting, planning, new projects I’m starting, old projects that are next to quilt… Sorry about talking so quickly, but it was my third time filming and my battery was low, I didn’t want it to die before I got into everything. Thanks for watching and stay crafty, friends!
This week I’m talking about sorting, and purging, and getting rid of junk, as well as how things are going with the q-zone hoop quilting frame, and an upcoming T-shirt Quilt project. I cut out nearly 12 minutes from the original video because ramble ramble ramble, ummm, ummm, ummmmm. You’re welcome! 😉
I actually finished quilting, binding, and labeling my first Project Linus quilt since early this year, yay! I’m having to use batting scraps since I can’t get new Linus batting, but that’s ok, it just means fewer batting scraps stored in my Project Room. I’ve also paired 4 of my 5 remaining Linus tops with backing, and I have left some scraps out to use in the Side by Side QaL blocks that I need to finish. It feels so good to finally be finishing some things, or at least moving them along another step. I need batting, and probably just going to order some unless I hear we are having a Linus drop off in July. I’m glad I filmed yesterday, because we have thunderstorms moving in today. One day at a time… one quilt at a time!
In which I talk about giving my coworkers some fabric masks and gearing up for the new Project Linus 2020 Mystery Quilt. Yes, it’s already almost time for this year’s mystery quilt! Hard to believe, but it’s true. The time has come to start quilting again. I’m ready.
My first post-mask craft project was making myself a belt from a leftover bit of cotton webbing from my December/January grocery tote endeavors. Had the perfect sized d-rings on hand! Pleased with the easy, fast results.
I’ve been plugging away here and there on finishing masks for my coworkers and to donate locally. And working on stuff here in my dilapidated, 60+yo house/yard, where everything is breaking or falling apart… when I’m not working.
Sorry I seem so distracted, but I clocked out from work to film this on my break, and I’m in the middle of a sort of complicated project at work and am clearly having a difficult time focusing on being in my Project Room talking to you all. I should have named this video “Scattered”.
In which I talk about online craft shopping, making masks, craftlessness, and Project Linus. I cut out a bunch… like most of my nervous breakdown (you’re welcome!). But I left enough of my description of my current dilemma to try to explain the look on my face.
One. Day. At. A. Time.
In which I drone on about buying stuff I don’t need and somehow drag this out to just under 10 minutes. I have bought gadgets, I have bought fabrics. I have not MADE anything. But as Scarlett said, “Tomorrow is another day” or some crap like that. Be safe, y’all.
I got the out of print fabric at my friend’s ebay shop. It’s all been pre-washed in free and clear laundry soap. Check out what’s there now at Colson’s Collectibles
In which I talk about things I can’t currently show you, such as shelves that need painting, drawers that need painting, and the memory quilt for a friend.
In which I show off a new pillowcase and talk for WAY less time than my last video, you’re welcome, lol.
