pieces of fabric on the wall
2550 pieces of fabric
take 17 down
and sew them around
2533 pieces of fabric on the wall...
|yes, yes those ARE boxes of Irish Spring - i put the leftover slivers that are too small to use in the shower into the new bar's box, and then place it in with stuff that i don't want getting stinky|
and if i had made the 150 buffalo that way
i might have gone a little cuh-ray-zee
and started trying to write new lyrics to 100 Bottles of Beer on the Wall...
okay, okay - a little cuh-ray-zee-ER...
i'm just sayin'
after making the first four beasts
and finding that i SHOULD HAVE TESTED the left-facing pattern - i'd made 50 copies already - ugh - there is no way they could have survived on the quilt prairie with their humps on backwards and their front legs where grass was supposed to be
i knew that i had to come up with some kinda plan...
i wanted to use scraps and stash that i've been
hoarding saving - which meant that i couldn't just cut four 2 browns for the buffalo, green for grass, and blue for sky pieces of yardage into 17 groups of workable pieces...
i measured and tested, just to be sure the sizes for each of the 17 pieces
|head - middle - butt ... cuz i'm a yes-butt-er|
and made labels for 17 envelopes to hold the cut fabrics
|legal-sized envelopes - cuz that's what i had|
the boxes of beasts are going sideways for a while ... i've gotta work on microwave-a-bowls and crayon wallets and other fancy stuff for a bit...
The difference between a hero and a coward is
one steps sideways.
