My fabulous friend Bonnie is visiting, sewing up a storm. Her ability to just sit at the machine and sew is incredible. I have to get up constantly, make another cup of tea, stretch... whatever. That's why she's done so much. She brought her big blue bin full of scraps and strings and is working out of that, along with a few bits from my collection. Her husband is apparently incredulous that she drove all the way down here just to sew.
Bonnie's wonderful creation, as of last night, with Habibi watching closely.
I haven't accomplished much. I started out sewing diamonds using Bonnie's scraps in all colors as well as my brights, but wasn't happy with the results (which are now incorporated into Bonnie's star). Not satisfied with what I'm doing so far, but each time I look at it, I can see what I need to change. Far more of the blocks have to be made straight across the diamond, instead of all angly. Use few novelty/heavily patterned fabrics per diamond and make the strings skinnier. Meanwhile, here is Pokey rolling all over my work:
The cats hid the first hour Bonnie was here, but that was it. I've been spending far too much time this morning trying to figure out the paperwork and beaurocracy to get these kitties overseas. Good thing they're worth it.
