Today's sewing time was to be devoted to getting "Remember Me," the first project in the Prairie Women Journey Two series, completed. The blocks are all in horizontal rows. The lattices and cornerstones are all pieced in their rows. Today was designated for sewing the horizontal rows of blocks and lattices together and perhaps even getting the border on.
Some months ago, Bonnie Hunter came to Near Philadelphia and taught a crumbs workshop for about 30 of us. I had a wonderful time that day and really surprised myself at how much I enjoyed these wonky techniques that we learned. I didn't know if I'd ever use them again, but I certainly did have a good day and felt proud of my completed project.
This morning, with no warning whatsoever, I went downstairs and was seized with a powerful, uncontrollable urge to make crumb blocks. There was no putting it off. I made three and set them aside and started putting rows together. Broke for lunch, ran an errand or two and went back down, thinking I'd get the rest of the rows together and think about the border tomorrow, Scarlett. Not to be. The crumbs rose up and demanded attention.
I've had a ball.
