This past Tuesday was my last weekday off...I was offered full-time Wednesday afternoon! Without hesitation I accepted, but then felt a little sad my last Tuesday of sewing was already over. I'll still have evenings and weekends as well as a little extra money in my pocket, so it's all good.
To prove that I can still get things done without a Tuesday off, here's what I've accomplished since then:
1. Trim the geese.
I've never been one to trim, but it made a world of difference.
2. Sew geese (and other newly cut pieces) into stars.
They look even more spring-like as stars, but the blocks aren't finished yet!
3. Make half-square triangles as the next step for this quilt.
I trimmed these too! This was today's (Saturday) step. It's nice that Judy is giving small steps - it means I'm more likely to get things done before the next step is posted. Of course, it also means I'll have time to clean the bathroom, a task I was hoping to put off a little longer!
For those of you who missed the link and the first post, I'm working on Judy L's January Quilts of Valor Quilt Along, a quilt she's named "Rolling Along." The steps are sprinkled throughout her blog posts, but I believe she's also adding them to her "Patterns for Free" tab so you can catch up or make it another day.
I'm still plugging along on the owls. I'll show them when I have a bit more done.
