Weekend Update - I'm Chevy Chase...and you're not.

Friday night – I started after the eye appointment debacle. I got started on the LCRR blocks and kept plugging away on the Dad quilt blocks. I also started 4 broken dishes blocks. What I did notice was that the safety on my rotary cutter kept giving out, thus making it unsafe to sew with. And so I had to run out on Saturday for a new one.

Saturday – What a day to sew! When we got home after the ice storm started, I was off to the sewing room. I was able to finish 4 more broken dishes blocks and 2 dozen of the Dad quilt blocks. Before we went out, I did finish the LCRR blocks. So once all of these things were done, I decided we needed a tree skirt. So I took out my blue and white snowflake fabric scrap stash and cut strips ranging from 1” to 3” (1/2” intervals) and did the stitch and flip method of QAYG. The skirt finished at 40” round. The new rotary cutter is fantastic!

Sunday – While watching 4 hours of Project Runway on the tivo, I got the entire tree skirt bound. It is beautiful and set up under our new 4 foot pre-lit tree. Of course, 5 hours later, I found my tub of Christmas fabrics intermixed with the Christmas décor boxes. While I didn’t sew any more on Sunday after 12 noon, I did indeed find the Xmas fabs and put them where they belonged, and went through and donated/threw out 2 footlockers and 1 more box full of fabrics. So while not a lot of sewing per se, I busted a ton of junk, which feels far better. Very little went down into the sewing room.

And the Chad sweatshirt is designed.
