Progress is being made on A Boy & A Girl. My goal is to have the top completed by January 2018. My deadline to complete this section of the border is October 1st. I think I can make it. I worked all day yesterday marking my background fabric and making my freezer paper templates. I call that part going back to kindergarten. Your basic cut and paste. I’m always amazed just how much time that part takes. It is still relaxing to me. Now I have to admit, I was up and down doing laundry, grilling chicken, you know the usual Saturday chores. I cannot sit still for those long periods without getting stiff so I’m up and down constantly. Besides, it also includes let the kitty in let the kitty out and my doggies as well. All of us who are owned by our furry friends spend quite a bit of time being a doorman.
After my doorman requirements are completed, I get back to my project where I divide my work time into sections. For instance, in the photo below the vine has circles at certain points. I work from circle to circle and then take a break. It takes about 2.5 – 3 hrs to complete each section which includes the mini breaks and interruptions from the kitties. I think the most time consuming part is fabric selection and color placement. Believe it or not, quite a bit of consideration is given to the fabric selection. It appears to be just willy nilly but that is not the case. I actually painstakingly choose these crazy combinations.
Back to my project now, I would like to get the next section’s fabric selections made before heading to church.
Everyone have a wonderful day and may it be blessed.
