The meeting with the floor people went well so now we have nothing to do until they can get us on the schedule in the New Year. In the lull I decided it might be time to get back into the piecing game. I had my new kit calling to me from the sewing room.
Once in the sewing room I unfortunately contracted a terrible case of grownupitis and decided I really can't ignore the project that's been waiting for me since last winter even though I am not feeling the least bit wintery in spite of the below average temperatures here.
It took me a while to get going on it. There's a lot of moving parts. Soon I remembered why I wasn't too fond of this project. You need a lot of different materials to keep prints from "touching" each other and since I am working from a limited collection I don't have that. The two blocks I finished can't be sewn together because I wasn't paying attention to those dark colors that will meet up in the center. Oh, well....I have lots more of these blocks to make so I am sure one of them will work here eventually.
I also have to be working carefully as the soap side of the room is full of drying bath bombs at the moment. I am out of my personal stash and I also wanted a few for gifting. The new little soap shop down the street is charging $5 a piece for these things. When you know what goes into them and how easy they are to make that's just crazy. That's $80 worth of bombs just in this photo. Can you believe it? You can buy an awful lot of baking soda, corn starch and citric acid for $80.
