It was the long weekend (a very long weekend for us here in Australia) and I...didn't do as much as I hoped. Or the things I was planning to do.
Do You Know Where You're Going To? (the one with the arrows)
One word: UGH.
Rosette 2, half-done. I needed to replace the dark green diamonds between the stars: not enough contrast. They'll end up somewhere else, I think - probably another couple of star centres. I'll do some sewing of this on...Friday. Yes. Friday.
Apparently my watchcry is: when procrastinating on show quilts and trying to destash...why not start a new project?
And I do love the colours of Sanae's Oh My line: so bright and saturated and bold!
The Great Aussie Destash
I, um, acquired someone else's stash on Thursday night. *flinch* It tends more towards traditional fabrics than moderns, which is a bummer, but it's all quilting cotton (even if it's not all the high-end stuff).
Eight garbage bags' worth. EIGHT GARBAGE BAGS.
I need my head checked. Seriously. Checked.
Anyway, I think this will mostly end up being sold via a FB destash group rather than the #greataussiedestash on Friday, because the Instagram crowd wouldn't be interested in this kind of stuff.
Sometime before Friday, I have to get things into bundles. And weigh them. And work out postage. You know, really? I suck at this destashing business...
Incidentally, I'm seldear over on Instagram, although I'm thinking of setting up a second account for destashes like this. Not that I have many Insta-friends outside of quilty/crafty circles...
Linking up at Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday and possibly other places as I spot them!
