Back home I got more than I thought I would done on the sewing side of things. I got all the fabric squares cut to make the hexies, as well as charm squares and the selvedges cut off the fabrics I got the other day!
I even managed to make a start on basting diamonds. My scraps are growing thanks to all this cutting, but it's all good I have some projects in mind for them!
I guess I should show you the photographic evidence.
|2.5" and 3" squares|
|The leftover pieces minus selvedges sorted by colour|
|Older prints minus selvedges (I did not cut them all at once!)|
|Love those selvedges!!|
Yes I have a variety of scissors...I still find it tricky to hold them properly. My thumb is double jointed so holding scissors is quite painful. The dress making scissors or slightly easier to use, they were helpful with cutting the smaller squares. I did use my rotary cutter for the charms and 4 x 5 pieces. Those black scissors are for paper and thread.
Tomorrow will be a busy day! I have to pop into town before heading to my placement....then get in and eventually make dinner! It'll be interesting...
Siya'll tomorrow =D
