So here we are….Saturday evening and I’m caught up with the two Stitch Tease bee blocks I needed to get done. They took a little longer than I had expected, but when it’s minus 6 outside and cosy and warm inside and the house is quiet and there’s a cup of tea next to me and nice things on the radio, a few extra minutes sewing is really rather delightful. Sorry I can’t show you the results….but I will show you all the finished quilts in the spring when I’m allowed to!
Until then….here’s a couple of sneaky peeks…
I’m making these blocks out of my stash. Well OK, right now I’m supposed to be making absolutely everything out of my stash. And after today I’m feeling even less tempted to do any fabric shopping because I had one of those ‘OMG how on earth am I ever going to use up this lot ?’ moments. Whichever way I look at it I have got way, way too much fabric. I’m going to need to live till I’m 300 to use this lot up. I’m telling you, it’s bad, really, really bad!
I know it’s stupid – I mean how could I expect to see a difference after making two, albeit large, blocks? But somehow I had it in my mind that I could make significant inroads into the laundry basket full of all the smaller scraps. DREAM ON SISTA. If anything all that rootling around stirred things up and made it look like I have even more….
Somehow I have to do something to use up really major amounts of scraps. Really, really lots…and fast!
Does anyone else periodically have state of the stash crises? What do you do?
I need some help here!
