Obviously today was more successful at the machine (and counting!) today. :)
In fact I started to sew them into rows tonight. Hopefully a whole top by tomorrow! And I want to make a small red border around before I put this cute bear-fabric border on. :)
But boy! It's sure nice to have those 1500+ pieces down to about a dozen "pieces" now. I'm started to feel a renewed desire to get this done, done, done. :)
The other cool thing is that I've spent $26 at the grocery store and got...
-16 boxes of cereal! They were on sale for $1/box.
-4 boxes of Nature Valley trail mix bar stuff. Will be good for my husband to grab for a bite at school. I don't really care what he eats in the morning, just that he gets any calories possible to avoid the typical noon "I'm feeling woozy" problem. :) Also $1/box
-1 pound of strawberries, $1
-1 gallon of milk $2
-2 jars of spaghetti sauce $3
Saved over 70%. Happy dancing over here. More money for fabric, right? ;)
