I cheated a bit and worked on it for 3 days, but shhhh don't tell my other projects that:-)
I then worked on A Time For Giving for 2 days and lets just say that not much happend in those two days.
It looks like I accomplished a bit over 2 days, but honestly there was a bit more added after my last update and I never blogged about it so it just looks like more.
I didn't do much stitching the last two days as I have had far too many distractions.
I was watching S1 of the TV Series Arrow.
I love the story line of the series, but I tend to love any of the Superhero movies, so it was a given that I would enjoy this.
My problem was that I would put on an episode with stitching in hand and would all of a sudden realise that I have watched the whole episode and my stitching was just left lying in my lap.
I just enjoyed watching the main character of the series way too much to miss any of it.
It started out innocently (as it always does). I was just looking around for new blogs to add to my reading list when I came across one that does English Paper Piecing.
I thought that it looks interesting and so I read some more.
Then I thought: Wow I would love to make a table cloth for Christmas with that technique.
A couple hours later I had read blogs and watched you tube videos and technique pages.
And today I popped into the fabric shop and bought some quilting fabrics:
I am not sure about the brown one on top working with the colours, but I really just couldn't resist those cute and tiny motives on it.
I really don't need another project and probably spent a bit too much money on the fabrics (sorry hubby) but I really just couldn't resist.
I spent a big part of yesterday sorting out all my WIPs and new starts.
I have put them in their own individual folders, which includes my working copy, the fabric and any threads needed for that project.
Now at any given time I just have to pull out the file to be ready to stitch.
I still have the last 3 projects to sort out and will show a pic of my storage solution on my next update.
I had grand plans for today with my stitching.
Daughter has a friend visiting so she is happily occupied, hubby left very early this morning to help a friends nephew move. This meant that I had the whole day to stitch with very little interuptiions from daughter and absolutely no guilt from feeling like I shouldn't be stitching because hubby might think I am being lazy.
Instead I have tidied house, being sorting out my projects and spent a fair amount of time at the fabric shop and then this update has taken forever. Hubby should be home in about 3 to 4 hours so hopefully I can get my butt in my chair asap.
PS I apologise for the weird spacing in this post and the previous one.
I have no idea why it is doing that and the extra line spaces don't show up under the html and that means I can't fix/change it.
