I wouldn't normally consider myself very distractable, but when it comes to sewing and cleaning I really am. I started working on making a pattern from a shirt I like which is quite stained. I have all the pattern pieces ready to go, and the fabric to make the shirts pulled from the stash...
...but then I got the fabric I ordered to make a QOV. I started on that and have 4 of the 32 log cabin blocks done, and the other 28 just need one more fabric...
...but then I found this cool fabric to make some more totes, and I think my niece would really like it, so I pulled the lining fabric for that...
...but then I was looking for patterns online to share on the guild blog and found a variation of "Not Your Grandmother's Tumbling Block" and pulled the fabric for that.
I need some focus here!
- First, finish the log cabin blocks; that should only take about 20 minutes. Actual time-40 minutes--wow, I wonder what else I underestimate.
- Second, cut out the pieces for the blouse--about an hour. (I have to clean off the cutting table first) oops, got distracted, I think about 4 1/2 hours...focus....focus....focus
- Third, make the tote (maybe 2 hours) Well, it's 7:30 on Sunday morning...do I count sleeping hours. I wrote down that I started at 1:15, so without the hours for sleeping and going to the concert, about 8 hours. Not actual working time of course, but the length of time I was working.
- Fourth, find the book, and cut the strips and sew them for the tumbling blocks. (I have no idea how long it will take to find the book...I didn't put it back where it belongs.)
Wish me luck.
