I needed to make two BOMs this weekend. I only made one. But, I made it twice...does that count?
I'm making the Constellations BOM from the Academic Quilter. Here's a link to the first block.
I made the block and it was fun! And, then I read all that she had to say about it and I started thinking about how this was going to work since I had just used all my background.
So, I went back and read the original announcement and realized I needed a nice big piece of background. We made a trip to JoAnn's to see if I could get more of what I started with, but alas, wasn't happening. So, I bought something different and came home and laundered it and remade the block.
I am victorious. And, the second block came out even better than the first one. I pressed the seams open on the second one and it really made a difference.
I did other quilty things too. Things I'll blog about another day.
And, I finished filling that box I'm taking to the free table at guild and I emptied, wiped out and refilled the pantry. Part of my effort to do some work on every cabinet this year. Clean them out. Purge. Organize. How many years will I try that one?
At least I start with a new cabinet every year, so eventually, I'll get to them all, right?
But just a few a year isn't anything to brag about, so I'm hoping a little public challenge will help. Feel free to ask me what I got rid of after any weekend. If I didn't get rid of anything...well, at least I probably won't lie.
Have a great Monday! Lane
