All of the pieces are cut for “Tumbling Into Insanity” and packed down into two of the plastic boxes. I will probably add a 3rd box to the stack for the sewing kit – thread, scissors, needles etc. In the short stacks at the back of that one box are some extra pieces just “in case” can never tell if you are sewing outside if a gust of wind will come up out of no where and take some of your pieces away or spill something on them and the stain won’t come out ect. I am linking to Esther’s WOW today and also Freshly Pieced Modern, and Sew Fresh Quilts:Lets’s Bee Social
Earlier yesterday it looked like this, cutting and stacking after I had spent about a half hour finishing with the printing – I ended up with 22 extra of the background fabric, miscounted but that is ok – can never tell if they will be needed.
I see I was holding the ruler backwards two boxes with 2.75 inches of tumblers in 14 stacks and a little extra! Now lets see how much I get done with in the camper for 2 months!
Well I was printing I decided to get some more of the white hexies done too – I have a feeling I am going to need them to finish off Diamonds are Forever – that box is constantly getting low!
A little work done on “Insanity Revisited” Monday night,
Our camping trip doesn’t start until the beginning of August and I’m already wondering what else to bring with me for creative working besides the Tumblers. I don’t want to get bored with just one project – I rarely ever work on just one! I plan on bringing my little knitting loom and see if I can teach myself how to make a pair of sock on it. Here is a link to the one I have – I have never tried it, I picked it up on a half price sale about over a year ago – it has a dvd instruction and book. I don’t know why I haven’t used it – just one of those things I guess where you think you will use it and plan to only to never “have the time”. I would have to have some one show me how to knit with needles for socks and I just haven’t gotten around to it– Craftsy has several sock classes, I remember looking and one is knitting from the top down and the other is knitting from the toe up – I wonder which is easier – if this loom doesn’t work I need to take one of the classes!!
If I bring these extra projects I won’t touch the sock loom! Hmm decision might be made right there – Normally I might do some sewing while Mike drives but that depends on the scenery and the roads, most of the time though the sewing only gets done in the evening or lazy afternoons if we are not hiking – or sight seeing. If there are too many bugs outside we definitely move inside the camper in the evening.
Oh well I have plenty of time to think about it – so much to do getting ready – so glad Melanie and Ric will be here to take care of the house and I don’t have to think about it!!
