I was able to make it to my LQS yesterday and buy 2 more yards of the darker gray for the last 2 sides of the back for Tell It To The Stars. I know 2 yards is a lot and I probably could get away with 1.5 yards but I just wanted to play it safe. I’ve got the fabric in the wash and hopefully I’ll have time to get it dry and pressed and cut and pieced onto the back today. It sounds like a lot when I list each step out like this but really it doesn’t take too much time. It’s just that while waiting for the wash or the dryer to be finished – I have a tendency of getting involved in something else (work, another project, an errand) and then poof! All those simple steps will get pushed to tomorrow or sometime next week.
I wasn’t able to go through the stash yesterday to pick fabric for the backing of Scrapitude. And while I was at my LQS I almost forgot my plan to pull from my stash. I had brought the top to the shop to show and was heading over to the sale section when I remembered. Thank goodness I remembered – I’m really hoping to use up some stash with this one. I’ll be picking backing today.
So I only have 2 yards to add to today’s stash. If I have time (and energy), I will work on putting the sashes and rows for Hampton Ridge.
