The funny thing is if I am able to go out and run errands or go spend money (hahaha) then it is no big deal, but the problem with that is you need an unlimited money tree in the backyard to access hourly and of course I don't. So here I am.......
I couldn't decide on what to do today so I thought I would be productive and blah at the same time. I have been piecing 2 inch squares together, one light and one dark, Bonnie Hunter style aka. Leaders and Enders, for awhile now and my bucket (which I thought was rather small) was starting to fill up, now mind you it was really about 3/4 full and didn't really look it.... since I was putting the squares in there rather nicely. Off I go chain piecing my little twosies into foursies and finally after hours and hours, not really it just seemed like it, I was done. So off to the ironing board and then the cutting apart and then the counting.
Can you guess how many I did?........who would of thunk it.

Ok ....again How many do you think is there? I ended up with 239 of them, yeah I know why couldn't I have just done one more? I didn't realize that there would be that many, on top of the other 100 or so I have done I think I may have enough to do at least one of Bonnie's patterns, but alas that will have to wait. I have other things simmering on the back burner, like Christmas gifts, that need to be done first.
I will have to go browse around http://www.quiltville.com/ really quick and see if there are some patterns that will use 2.5 or 1.5 4 patchs and switch gears for now.
The mindless sewing and the scrap cutting, 3 hours this morning, I would say I had a productive day for a change. Don't think I will get anything else major done tonight. I am a football fan and tonight is the start of the regular season.....Go Saints!!!!!
Enjoy your day and take a few minutes to sew or craft everyday, it makes the day more bearable.
