The 52 Week Sewing Challenge is found on Facebook and there are 52 challenge prompts. You must finish your item before Sunday evening and post a picture of it to be included for a chance to win prizes. You have the option to Accept the Challenge or Reject it! Week two and I have gone rogue already. The challenge was sew something from the last fabric you bought. If I am honest, a lot o fabric comes into this house. The last one, I am not sure I can totally pinpoint that, but I can rough guess. It was either a pricey sweater knit that I am currently debating on using for another Adrienne or other was a Sly Buy deal and I am saving it for a maxi dress.
Sew much fabric, Sew Little time!
So I made quilt blocks for a swap. There are 6 of us girls from Facebook who are swapping together. Someone choose to do this block. It is a lone star block made from strip sets which means no set in seams. It is kind of neat how it comes together. We agreed to use Civil War Colors and all the backgrounds would be beige print! They take awhile, but they are worth every minute.
First you have one…
Then you have two…
Keep going and you will have three…
Only 9 more to go.
In other news, I hurt my knee this week and for the first time in my almost 36 years, I was traveling on crutches. A late night phone call to my brother went like this-
Me: Ummm, What are you doing?’
Me: “Are you home?”
Me: “Good, I need help.”
Brother: ” What do you need help with?”
Me: “Getting in my house.”
Brother: “Uhh, Ok.”
Me: “I’m sitting in the rain, in my driveway, and my knee wont work.”
Brother: “Jesus, I am on my way.”
Fast forward and he gets me inside, then to the ER where he waits until our momma arrives before going home and getting to bed as he works early. While waiting in the ER I am messaging with An from Diskordia’s Curvy Sewing and our conversation gets to this…
Why Yes, it is my sewing knee, but I need both of my knees. 🙂 I saved this because it has kinda cracked me up all week. Xray of course showed nothing, and they tried to load me up on pain pills. Umm, no thanks lady. I need to be human in a few hours. So I spent the night in bed and the next evening after work there as well. These two kept close watch on their momma. Good news my knee is moving again, still sore, but An, my sewing knee is working again!
