In the last hours of the first quarter of the Finishalong, I find myself with one entry only!! And wondering where the three months went? Not really - I do wish I'd finished more on my To Finish List, but I've had such a good time working on everything I've been working on, and eyeing the three months pass by, it's a long three months when you make every day count.
Last October, I was alone in Portland, Maine for a day. Pepsipal caught an early flight home (airline employees travel by the seat of their pants because it's for free) and what was I to do? I immediately managed to get lost trying to take a scenic route and avoid the turnpike, which infuriated me with myself. I backtracked and managed to find Joann's on Brighton Ave, and wandered around there for several hours, looking at patterns and observing demographic inventory differences.
I wanted a small project to occupy me on my travel home from Boston. What I found was a table runner, and I decided to make one using batiks. This meant I could choose at least six fat quarter batiks plus a half-yard of a bolt fabric!
And here are my original projects. No matter, they're back on the to-do list for next quarter!
