I was given some scraps today that I sorted and added to the shoe box collection. I am getting so organized, sometimes I amaze myself!! I have 1-2" scraps in one, I have 2" strips and squares in another, and I have my 2 1/2" squares in another sorted dark and light. I have my 2 1/2" strips sorted by color. Pretty cool!!
I also changed my mind on the mystery that started yesterday. We got the fabric requirements and finished size. I changed the light to one that I feel matches better. I used my phone camera on tonal again and found I have a dark, a medium, and a light. I am pleased with my choices. I will post the steps along the way.
I also went shopping at the fabric store today and bought a bodkin. I have been looking for one for a while. It is a funny looking tool that helps me turn thin things right way out, like bias for applique. I am very happy with my finds today. I got a special thing that I can't wait to share with you. I will pick it up Thursday. Watch this space!! I am looking forward to trying everything.
Hope you have a great day and you enjoy your crafts for a bit today. Also hope you will join me with the mystery quilt. We start cutting and sewing on Monday, 8 September.
