Another Week of Green

I had a lot of sewing planned out for this week. Got it all done except for a graduation gift, which I need for tomorrow, that will not get done in time. I knew the timing was off on my Pfaff, but trying to go thru 5 layers of fabric, 5 layers of interfacing, a layer of batting AND 2 layers of Timtex really did a job on the timing!!! I will have to put that project on hold until I can get this machine serviced. I have plenty of other machines that I could use, but the "throats" aren't big enough to handle the bundle of STIFFNESS that I am working on! I just hope I can find someone local and not have to go 2 hrs away to Houston to get it serviced. I will check with my local quilt shop on Tuesday.

Anyway, I did get 10 green blocks done this week. I made 6 pinwheel blocks. I was only supposed to make 5, but 6 does make a better picture!!

Then I got busy making 4 That Thirties Thing blocks.

I have 3 tubs of green selvedges -- light, medium and dark. I only took out the medium tub to make these. I also started making my Scrappy String blocks today and will use the same tub. Maybe when I finish those 12 blocks, it will show a dent in that bin! Those selvedges and strings just seem to multiple instead of disappearing!

One more green project this week. I love making these little bags. I also make the zippers pulls. It's fast to whip them out and they make a great gift.

 

Hope you head on over to SoScrappy to see other GREEN blocks made this week.

...............Sew till next time.............

Love your rich greens in all the blocks. Those little bags are so cute. Hope you can get your machine serviced quickly. I hate being without my Bernina.

Your little bags have such a fun, curvy shape! What pattern do you make them from? I'd love to try it!

Gorgeous green blocks! And those bags are terrific!
Having just been through a bunch of machine troubles, I offer you my deepest sympathy. I hope you can find a quick, cheap, and local fix!

The more pinwheels the better! Sweet little purses with the bead pulls.
