I won, I won!

On Pat Sloan's Radio show last week the guests were Leah Day and Rossie, two of my favorite bloggers. I won the template set that Rossie was giving away! They arrived yesterday.

She sent me the circles set! Circles are my favorite shape. This was the set I was hoping she would send. Dreams do come true!

I can't wait to play with these. Included with the templates were directions for how she uses these both with dye and discharge processes. Alas, this will have to wait until next week when the @#$% class I am currently taking is over. In fact, I think this will be my last post until next week as a result of this class.

Just to give you an idea of how much time I have been spending on it - my son went to school with mismatched socks one day last week because he had no clean matching socks and my husband fixed dinner one night so that I could work a little longer. I use a laptop computer, usually I only need to recharge my laptop battery once every 2 or 3 days. I have yet to make it through a day without needing to recharge the battery since this course started. Not that all my computer time has been spent on this course, I do still have three classes I am teaching for which I use my computer often and I read blogs on my computer, but I have been spending a lot more time on the computer than I usually do.

On Sunday morning I had about a half hour to sew a bit. I made a little more progress on my wonky border.

Only the left border is attached in the photo above. I took several pictures of where to put the border on the right. I haven't made a decision on that yet so don't be surprised if it gets sewn on a different side, not used at all, or cut up and used in a different way. Who knows! I made both borders out of the wonky strip from the first picture above.

Well, that's all the time I have for now. Don't expect to hear from me again until next week when I can hopefully show you more progress on my Wonky NY Beauty project.

Hey! Congratulations! That is just great! I love how your wonky piecing is turning out. I just got my Kona cottons in the mail yesterday. Woo hoo! That is a really funny story about the mismatched socks. I know the feeling! Been there, done that!
