Sometimes you just have to burn some Midnight Oil…….to get in some
good stitching time. Peace and quiet. Alone time!
Tonight I just FINALLY had to get upstairs and have some time to stitch stitch stitch! With the weather being extra warm here I've been spending a lot of time outside preparing garden space and such. Oh man, I am SOOOOOO ready for garden goodies!!!
Yellow ovals shown here are reverse appliqué….I dread and usually put off these parts and I don't know why, it doesn't end up being as hard as I think it will be!
This is block #6 out of 16.
Lucky me…..Erin Brockovich is on for my late night stitch fest. I LOVE this movie! I watch it every time it's on. I know it by heart and can listen more than watch as I stitch away on my Friends of Baltimore blocks.
I prepare parts on some other blocks to take a break from too much stitching.
In another room upstairs where I'm burning the Midnight Oil is all the fabrics I have set aside for this particular Friends of Baltimore appliqué project. I have added MORE fabric selections since I took this photo.
I DO pre-wash/soak with Synthrapol in HOT water before I cut out any of my appliqué pieces.
And if I stitch into the wee w-e-e hours and dare not disturb Goober dog or Hubby….there is a real comfy quilt adorned bed right behind where I'm stitching away I can slip into when needed…..doesn't happen often but when I do on occasion it does feel as if I'm on vacation!
OK…..my OIL is burning up and I shouldn't be wasteful with it!!!
Hhhmmm, I sure could use a snack…..wondering if I could tippee toe downstairs and snag something good to munch on without being found out…..or heard……
