THIS MERRY GO ROUND STOPS!!!
I WILL BE BACK!!!!
Did I ever tell you that I don’t like merry go rounds? I get dizzy and want to lose my breakfast!
So Yesterday I blew the dust off my machines and got busy with some totes for the Young Women that will be coming into my class during the year. I just felt since I will be moving by May I need to get these done so no one will feel cheated, I will pass these on to the next leader.
Oh…didn’t I tell you we were moving? Sorry….moving to San Antonio, Texas. Do I hear a Yeeee HAWWW!!! We hope to be out by May or the beginning of June, would be sooner but I have some responsibilities.
Sooooooooooooooooooooooooo (some people know how to make a short story long). As I was looking for something…..I spied this Christmas wrapping Paper.
My mind went….HUMMMMMMMMMMMM
So I measured it. HOT STINKING DOG…..this roll is 30 inches long. You are saying “So stinking what”….
I did a 30 inch square.
Then I went and measure and got this:
Oh my goodness….remember all of those round runners? No more using tape to put several pieces of paper together for a template….I got this circle cut out in matters of minutes.
I HAVE THIS IDEA IN MY HEAD SO I AM ON THE HUNT AGAIN ….. I just have to remember to put things away and not leave them out….can make a mess faster than anyone.
IN MY KITCHEN….I just saw an old “Quilt Show” episode and Alex Anderson said she went to her kitchen for templates….Oh yes…. GREAT MINDS!!! Oh…I know I don’t belong up there with
Alex but hey a gal can dream????
Don't you just love my boys? That is what I was calling them all day when I was taking them off the machine. Then I thought that I almost have enough boys to put names on these guys and make me a "My boys quilt"..
I almost forgot to tell you, I tried to use old Steam A Seam project scraps, just to save on Steam A Seam and to use up old scraps....So if you are going...hummmm that is how my son dresses without supervision, well....I was just trying to be thrifty (cheap).
I used the Go cutter to cut out the Overall Sam's and Marjorie sent me the embroidery design.
Gene has been working with Marjorie's designs as well, you can see his post here.
