Saturday started off with a drive to the farmer’s market in another town – the town that my brother and his wife bring their farm products to. I hadn’t visited then in awhile and thought what better time then when I know they will be in one place for awhile (they are busy people) I was able to chat with them for close to an hour in between people stopping by to purchase and was able to get some wonderful veggies of my own from them. Then it was on to home to get busy doing things all day.
Can you believe it is fall already!! It is dry and hot here – I’m not sure when we had rain here last – we did last week when I drove to visit family in another part of the state but my section here at home didn’t and I don’t think we have had rain in 3 weeks now – first too much now none.
I managed to get that 3rd side of Handful of Scraps done between Friday night and off and on Saturday and now on to the next side.
A close up of the mixture of neutral fabrics I am using.
Then it was on to getting the next Round We Go circle/star ready. I showed you the scrapbag of fabric I was planning on using and they work out really well and one star barely begins to use this bunch up. Using the acrylic templates included I trace around each piece (seam allowance is included) six pieces barely cut this piece of fabric. I use a sandpaper board and it has dried glue on it if you were wondering about this work surface.
these are the colors I am working with for this one – I decided to try fussy cutting and worked at it a little harder than I have in the past. When fussy cutting of course your fabric ends up looking like Swiss Cheese which is why this thrifty quilter doesn’t usually do it!! Here it is just glue basted and laying there.
At this point some pieces are sewn together – and some are not – I’m joining Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching and will continue working on this piece and maybe trading it out part way through the day to do some more applique on the vine for Fall Harvest.
