Slicing and dicing

I was full of good intentions to spend some time at the sewing machine today, but when I finally had a bit of time, it was getting too late in the afternoon.  I find that I really don’t enjoy sewing late in the day, so I did some some slicing and dicing instead.  First I measured and cut the binding strips for the memory quilt I’m making.  I’ll be sure to get the machine out tomorrow so I can get this stitched on.

With the quilt club monthly stitching day coming up,  I sliced and diced in preparation for that.  Cut lots more floral squares to use in the raggy anniversary  quilt I’m making for early next year.  This quilt is certainly giving  me a chance to use up some of those smaller pieces of fabrics sitting in my baskets.  And those others which have been hanging around for a while.  They should all tie together nicely with some green to give it a garden look.  And I’ll have lots of squares all prepared to take along to the “Stitching Monday”.

So although I didn’t do any sewing today, I have been productive.  And there’s always tomorrow………..
