I've been working this weekend.
It's interfering with my quilting. LOL!
Oh well, I can't buy fabric if I don't work. LOL!
Anyways, I have had time to do some slow stitching in the evening after work.
I picked up my Millefiori rosette #1 and I'm doing the final round.
Don't look too closely at the stitching on this EPP project. I'm terrible at EPP. I don't know why. But it's just not my thing. I will finish this round and make it into a wall hanging and that will be the end of this project. I love hand piecing better than EPP. I'm just better at it.
Also, I worked on my sampler quilt the last few weeks, and some of the blocks that I made would be good for the RSC challenge. These are 12 inch blocks and look great all scrappy.
I think I will add these to my must make RSC blocks for next year.
I might even make some this year and catch up with the colours we've already covered.
What do you think? I used the Essential triangle tool by Bonnie K. Hunter to make all the HST's and flying geese. It's so much easier. These were all made from 2 1/2 inch strips.
Anyways, I didn't do my spending report for March yet.
March was my birthday month. I turned 40 this year. AHHHHHH!
Okay, I'm getting up there. But I'm actually quite happy to be 40. I'm coming into my own, more or less. And I'm in a good place right now.
So, since it was my birthday month, I did spend more than I should have.
I hope this is not a trend though. LOL! Because, I'm supposed to be good this year. LOL!
I don't know if this program is working, or if I'm just spending as much as I normally do.
So, I bought a new to me sewing machine for $400. It was a steal and I couldn't pass it up.
That's my big birthday gift to myself. And I did do some fabric shopping. I spent a total of $192.50 on fabric. I bought 9 fat quarters, a 1 gallon scrap bag, and 11 meters of yardage. I also purchased the Essential Triangle tool by Bonnie K. Hunter and the EZ dresden ruler.
So, my total spending for quilting stuff so far this year is .........$695.40
Ouch!! That does include a sewing machine though. Ughhhhh!
Okay, I need to get back on track. LOL!
