I have today off.
(Since I'm not full-time yet, I usually get Tuesday off.)
Into the sewing room I go!
Another 26 blocks finished.
26 to go!
Then the hubby came home and wanted to sleep, so I had to switch to something quieter.
Why not the One Thing, One Week Challenge?
My challenge to myself: cut out the owls and choose a background.
That is one big pattern sheet! It's about the size of a newspaper when it's all unfolded!
Owls cut - check.
Lay things on the floor - check.
Though the photo doesn't show quite all of the background fabric I have - I don't have enough of either for all 9 owls.
I can't get more of the top, busier fabric, so that makes my decision easy!
But just to be sure, I put the border fabrics on there and definitely think the less busy background is best.
Now I just have to go buy more background because I only have enough for 4 owls!
I'm not going to call this challenge complete until all the owls are pinned to their backgrounds.
That will make sure I don't run out before I can get more!
I also have another recipe link to share with you: Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup.
Since the hubby is on an oddball diet of his own making (and preparing) and it's cold here and I want more time to quilt (and read), I'm trying to make better use of my crock pot. I came across this recipe and thought 'why not?' and it is delicious!
(My only change was to use a whole quart of home-canned tomatoes and skip the water. Cheese and sour cream to garnish.)
I think I'll go read for a while. This running out of fabric has me hugely frustrated, so it's probably best I leave the scene for a while!
