I had to take today off from work to make a decision about tile for our kitchen remodel and get it ordered.
I had a very busy day.
I got a little sewing in first thing in the morning.
I made the latest Solstice Challenge block.
It's called "Board Games" and was designed as a 24" block. I have a finite amount of fabric and haven't been able to find any to add to my group. So, I had made the decision early on to just make 12" blocks instead, and then sash them in a simple setting.
I pared this block down to the basics and made it 12" instead.
After that I took the dogs for a walk in Lincoln Park. They were so excited! We haven't been to the park for a while because of my schedule lately.
I took the dogs home and then headed down to the area around the Seattle Design Center and went to several tile dealers.
I thought I had narrowed it down to the one I wanted, but I found another I like even better. I got a sample and filled out an application to be able to buy from them.
I came home for lunch with the DH, he likes this new tile better also. After lunch I realized that the quarterly taxes are due on Monday. So, I sat down and got that taken care of.
I had about an hour and a half until I had to get dinner started so I went back upstairs to start on a new project.
Yes, I said 'new' project. [What is wrong with me?!]
Hard as it is to believe, I actually bought a kit. Yes, a prepackaged kit with fabric and pattern. This is first for me. It looked so fun I couldn't help myself.
I prewashed the fabrics yesterday. I ironed some of them and got them organized and then cut out and sewed together the first block today.
It's called Wallflower.
