..............before collapsing into bed !
I've begun a new project.
After cutting strips for DAYS, I starting sewing strips onto these 10-inch foundation papers that I purchased from Missouri Quilt Company. It is slow going, mainly because I am having trouble with the strips that are cut widthwise of the fabric, you know, from selvedge to selvedge. They want to lump up, stretching ahead of the presser foot, and a walking foot didn't seem to help.
MAJOR TIP: Cut your strips on the lengthwise grain ! Why haven't I read this anywhere lately while doing my string quilt research?
Anyway, it's a GOOD START. I'm dying to stitch together the 16 squares that I finished today, but I'm afraid that I will run out of these colors and have to add in a bunch of new fabrics, and then the next part of the quilt would be noticeably different. So, I really need to wait until I've pieced ALL the blocks, and THEN put them together. YUCK !
But, it's looking so good to me, that I really DO want to make it some kind of BED-SIZE.
So.............PATIENCE is called for. Praise the LORD, this is fun, though !
Well, I also mowed the yard today and cut the hubby's hair, so I'm done.
Night all !
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"
The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.
