So after a long day at work I came home walked my 2 ' cocker spaniel pups' i thought OK make the descion and went to my stash ... ohhh boy did i ever make a boo boo.
I went to the scrap boxes and emptied them all on the floor the puppies thought......oh wowwwwwwwwweeeeeeeeeeeee lets play mum is making a mess...... (twas mess in their eyes) as i was trying decide scrappy, green , blue, purple etc ( where did all these bits come from ) the pups were grabbing bits and taking off!! oh boy who needs this after a days work? so now all scraps on floor and nothing was pushing the right buttons so i decide to look at the Fq's. Boy how does fabric grow so much? Have I really bought all this?
I put FQ's i think might work on floor and stand and look then the pups take off with them, tearing up and down stairs, tumbling and generally having a ball but by now I'm screaming and hyperventilating and the pups give a *************
But I look at what the pups have run of ..........dang u know it might work so am or will use these.
Of course being distracted I managed to sew a few strips on the wrong side of the fabric, so i rip , as i am ripping Bailely decides this must be a new game and starts tugging on the other end, so ripping took longer than it should since I had to chase him to retrieve the bit that fell on the floor.
Then it was time to press the strips, and there is the brown nose again having a nosey at what is going on ... time to cut into squares and didnt the darn cat land on the cutting mat to see what all the commotion was about... I had to stop cutting .... till everyone settled down then back to cutting and counting.... and I count and recount and mutter and recount and count singly and mutter some more.. I have only 78 blocks. I was using the same green for the centre and I have the smallest scrap of it left (thank heavens I didnt do my usual trick of cutting the scrap into squares)
This morning before work it was a case of back to the cutting mat to cut strips and sew again. All I have to do tonight is press my bits and cut and just hope I have 22 bits if not I'll have to sew another 50 to tone in.
