The plan

     Thank the gods, inspiration for the Habitat Challenge finally struck around 10:30 Monday night.   A plan was sketched, Habitat fabric was cut, a test block was sewn.  Things were looking up.  Until I was lured away by Parks and Recreation (damn you, Netflix!).  My project was dunzo for the evening.

     I fully intended on getting the rest of the fabric cut and all 16 blocks sewn yesterday.  After getting the older kids off to school, I built an elaborate train track for the little guy and let him go to town playing with Thomas, Salty and friends.  But I had conveniently forgotten about the planned power outage to upgrade a transformer in the neighborhood, so no sewing for me.  I couldn't even cut my Kona Moss into the 69 pieces required for this project because it hadn't been ironed yet!  I thought I might get to sew because the power came back on at 2:30 pm, but the transformer blew half an hour later.  On the bright side, I didn't have to make dinner.

     So now, with Kieran down for a nap, fabric mostly cut, and plan in hand, it's time to get down to business.  I'll be at my sewing table if you need me.



  1. Good luck with your Habitat challenge! I keep seeing people doing these, and I'm sooo envious -- there's no modern quilt guild nearby, so no challenge for me. >_< Your draft looks intriguing!

  2. Yay for inspiration, boo to no power! Hope you get everything done :o) Oh, and like Alli, there's no MQG near me, so we'll just have to live vicariously through you ;o)

  3. I have two words for you... hand piece. Bwhahahah! Just kidding.

    I really like your plan. Keep plugging away. : )


Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear your thoughts!
