I haven't quilted nearly as much as I thought I would be after moving two years ago. Dang! Two years already??? I moved into this house on the 26th of January 2015. That flew by!
So the daily sewing happened for two days in a row. (ahem, hey! I'm not perfect!) There are other things to be done and yesterday was a busy one. I did sew yesterday, but I also, replenished the chickens' food supply, (four 40 pound bags worth) and since it's been literally freezing here lately, I am having to haul water to my goats and chickens by the bucket full. I moved the horses' buckets closer to the house to make it a little more convenient for me, their buckets are twenty gallons each, times two. Nope, not hauling individual buckets eight times to fill those buggers! I love that the ground is frozen, it makes it safer and easier to get around the ranch, but the hoses don't run water. When it thaws out next week, I will be able to run the hoses, but will be slipping and sliding in the mud! I guess I can't have it all!
Today, sewing didn't happen because I spent yesterday hauling heavy things around and my elbow and hands hurt too much to hold onto fabric.
This is what I did get done:
My first Wonky Log Cabin.
I think I will make two of each in the colors of the month. They are 12-1/2" right now, so will finish out at 12". I think I will have a good amount to make a decent quilt with.
My second Wonky Log Cabin, only half done. Distractions happened in the way of a baby goat needing to fed every other hour, so he was a tad more important than my blocks!
I found the pieces for this in the bottom of my scrap tub. They started out as just the strip of stars sewn to the lighter fabric. They were 3-1/2" strips to start with, I added the third fabric and then sewed them together kind of willy nilly, just because they were there and yeah, RSC! I can't for the life of me remember what they started out life as. I still have four more. Maybe an idea will come to me for using those by next year's RSC!
So! For the very first time in my life with a blog, I am linking up with Angela and taking this journey! It's going to be fun! Now I am off to link and then finish looking at the other 59 blog links...there's some awesome stuff going on over there!
