Weekend Stitching: Just a Little Something or Other

Weekends always go so fast, even when the weather is nasty.  Though to be fair, this was a busy weekend.  My Guy and I were asked to play photographers for our local clean up day sponsored by the company we work for.  I covered one location, he covered the second.  I bailed just as the heavy rain started, DSLRs don't do so hot when it's really raining.  In the evening, we attended a retirement party for one of the scientists that hired in the same year I did.  His retirement leaves me as the last of that "incoming class".  It's going to be a bit odd going forward, as one individual noted that leaves me as one of the few who know where all the skeletons are.  

Most of last week was spent getting En Provence ready to ship out for quilting.  So there hasn't been a lot going on that's photo worthy.  I'm back to sashing the Vintage Dress blocks, but at the moment it doesn't look much different than it did the last time I posted about it.   I've been playing a bit more with the left over 1" strips from the frames around those blocks. 




These 4 patches will finish at 1".  Not sure what I'm going to do with them at this point.  I'll keep making them till I use up the strips and then decide the next step.  I don't usually work this small, but I'm having a hard time just throwing away such nicely cut strips. 

That's it for me this week.  I'm off on Friday, so I'm hoping to get in some very nice sewing room time that day.  Linking up with

Those teeny tiny 4 patches are so appealing! You'll find a fun use for them one day! Have a great week, Kate.

I hear you on pitching the small pieces. I am collecting small triangles, but not for me. To offer to those who are insane. LOL!

Oh I have lots of ideas for those itty bittys, but you probably have your own. I’ll just keep quiet.

4-Patch blocks that FINISH at 1"?!?! I don't even quilt that small and I make mini quilts all the time. You are doing true miniature quilting.

From the youngest to the oldest in the blink of an eye. One thing about it, knowing where are the skeletons are makes good job security.

love your four-patches. I know what you mean about not wanting to just throw them away. I'm sure you'll come up with something fun though.

Isn't it fun to just play around with little scraps like that? No pressure, just pure enjoyment :)

I enjoy seeing your vintage dress blocks, and am happy you are continuing to work on them. And your little four patches are so cute. You will find something to do with them, I know. Thanks for linking with Design Wall Monday, I appreciate you. Judy

The little four patches look well worth saving, so cute and pretty. They are so tiny I think I would use them in something very small, maybe a special dolls quilt, that would be lovely. I'm looking forward to the next peak at vintage dresses and I've even done a paper pieced block recently. I'm not up to your standard yet awhile though.
