I have no self-control! No willpower at all! This was harder than resisting thin mint Girl Scout cookies!! I should have known better. When I opened the package I knew I was going to be tempted, but I just planned on getting a picture for my blog and that was all.
But then it started calling to me... every time I passed and looked at it the calling seemed to get louder and louder. "Here I am! Aren't I beautiful? Wouldn't you just LOVE to spend some time with me? You know this will be fun!"
I could no longer resist. A little spare time on Sunday afternoon, and I had to give in.
So now instead of a rainbow jelly roll (as shown in a previous post) I have jelly roll strips sewn into 4-sies. Alternating light and dark strips have gone together so quickly and easily, and I think it is going to be such a very bright, cheerful, and fun project. I did decide to use the Jelly Roll Diamond pattern I showed on the picture, and after pressing the strips, the next step will be cutting the 60 degree angle strips.
I KNOW I should have been working on the Glorified 9-Patch... only one more row to construct and then I can start sewing rows together. My heart just was not into it today. And besides... it could not call to me from the plastic container where it is resting (and I am ignoring it).
Back to work tomorrow, so the "next step" for the rainbow jelly roll probably won't happen for a while. As soon as I get a little further along on it I will post a picture here.
And the moral of the story is: Out of sight, out of mind. If I REALLY need to be doing other things, I better put fabric for the NEW projects up where I can't see them (or HEAR them)!
And you know that APRON pattern I got (and the 30s fat-quarters)? They are starting to YELL at me this evening! Think I best go find a more sound-proof place to put them!!
