This phrase is just horrifically offensive.  Hopefully they have updated the terminology.

I assume/hope. They did add walls to the open classrooms and get a computer lab after I left. LOL!!!

Well, I finally got to work again on my Applique.  I finished the fourth panel with the pretty angel on it.  This will go on the top of the other three.

And, my stabilizer arrived this afternoon, that means tomorrow I can start stitching!  (Unless I get busy tonight....)

I've enjoyed watching your fashion show on your blog! What a cool pattern for your pants.

Year 29 of house arrest, And those darn triangles are multiplying like flies at a picnic. However I do have enough sewn into Flying Geese to make a throw.  They are all different size so I will have to do a custom set.

I got the bias for the t-shirt quilt ready. Next since all the stores are closed I have to figure out will be peiced out of large novelity fabrics, maybe a giant pinwheel on the back since I have pinwheels on the front. I just need to figure out what I have. I would order curbside pickup from JoAnn.........BUT I fear that they may have to backorder stuff or will not have the yardage I need, I would rather look and see in person before I buy.

I have also made 3 pair of underwear and have 3 more cut out. Now that I got the fit where I want it they are making up pretty quick and I am using jersey cotton knit for the bands for the legs and waist and it works really nice.............yes crazy sewing project but quick and fun to see what colors I can come up with. Who knew those would ever be something I would make. Another thing if you sew with lightweight knits (which I do) this is a great scrap buster.

Made a mistake and kissed a snake..32 times...okay I cut the wrong size squares to make magic eight HST so I'm now short and the fabric is old/unmatchable.  Right now the top is about 64 by 92, so to get it to about 84 by 100, I need to add border/borders. If / when you add such different size borders which way do you lap the borders?

Now, I'm curious.  I would love to see a photo of your new underwear.  Your sewing talents are amazing--I would never even think of making panties.

I need to finish sewing the 2 pair I have going now, they just need the bands on the waist and legs and are the same. Then I will take some photos and put them on my blog. They sew up super fast, the pattern goes from teeny tiny to plus sizes and is a free download if you sign up for a newsletter. I figured why not and now I am on my 4th and 5th pair. They are kinda instant gratification because they sew up so fast. I altered the pattern by adding an inch of rise on the waist so now they are more a hip height than a lower rise.

I started my quarantine community quilt starting Mar 16th when the kids no longer went to school. I was hoping it wouldn't be that big but it looks like it is still going to continue to grow.
