Roseanne and Sue @ Home Sewn by Us are this week's designers: Stars ⭐
As I mentioned last week, I had planned to add 2.5-inch borders. I used EQ8 to design and print a paper pieced star template. Paper piecing is not my favourite technique, but I will admit that I have moved from hating it to tolerating it.
It was an extremely busy work week with overtime, so I didn't get to my stars until Saturday night. I should have known better. I had half of one (just one) star paper pieced, and I decided 2.5-inch paper pieced stars were not for me. So I abandoned this plan.
I didn't sew any more Saturday night because my body was aching from shovelling wet heavy snow from yet another weekend winter storm (the third in four weekends in January). Twice I had to shovel, and twice I was wet because of the rain. And that doesn't include helping a neighbour push her car out of the street because for some reason she thought she could drive her car down her unplowed driveway into the unplowed street with summer tires on her car.
And then we had rain and a drop in temperature. So needless to say, my driveway was a sheet of ice Sunday morning. I decided to stay put (missing my weekly hair appointment 😭) and ended up working most of the day.
So life got the better of me this past week, and there was limited sewing. But that's the beauty of this Stay at Home Round Robin -- you work at your own pace, doing your own thing. No stress. No pressure.
So my project remains exactly as I shared last week.
Despite today's overtime, I did manage to purchase an electric snow shovel. I'm ready for the next storm, which sadly is expected to arrive in time for the weekend...again...sigh......
