is all the time I could find yesterday. I guess that answered the question whether playing nursemaid would give me more time or less time in the studio ;-) Most of my day was spent getting caught up on paperwork. When my daughter was feeling a little better, we watched a tearjerker movie together, and after that I was good for nothing ;-)
I'm not a big Miley Cyrus fan, but I like Greg Kinnear and Kelly Preston. I usually stay away from Nicholas Sparks books and movies because of the tearjerker aspect, but my daughter picked the movie. I have to say, it was a sweet movie....I used more tissues than my sick daughter.
OK...back to quilting. This is only the second time I've worked with selvages. It is a great project for 15 Minutes of Play, and maybe sometime later today, I will finally link my last two projects there ;-)
I've been saving my selvages for a while, and I am glad to finally see them sewn on blocks.
You know...it is possible to recycle too much. I wanted to use old phone book pages for my foundation, but I don't have any. They've all been recycled, and I guess the phone book people haven't found us at our new house ;-) We don't subscribe to the newspaper any more which has really reduced the amount of items in our recycling bin. I ended up using a monthly neighborhood bulletin that happened to arrive at the right time.
At my speed, fifteen minutes only produced nine 4" selvage blocks. My daughter is still home sick...poor thing. I may have more selvage blocks to show tomorrow ;-)
Have an amazing day!!!
