This is GOOD NEWS!
The crimps have arrived! This is a modest, quite small bag of goodness: 1000 #2 crimps normally used for framing. Such a small thing, but without them, the Habitat for Humanity piece would remain in pieces!
This is an empty spool. It seems somehow momentous to have used every living centimeter of a 1000 meter spool of thread! Fortunately I had another spool of color #407 on hand!
This is a box of T-pins that I will use to compose the hangings. It is a suitable use of t-pins leftover from my gallery days and an influx of around 100 more t-pins.
And THIS is 26 more modules awaiting grommets. (total so far = 131 modules) Dale drilled the holes today. But, alas and alack! We could not begin grommeting because I chewed up the upper die trying to learn how to efficiently use the machine the other day. It seems that I applied TOO MUCH FORCE. The grommets installed after this INCIDENT of TOO MUCH FORCE, installed with chewed-up-square holes. Hmmm. Maybe that is why I had sore ribs at bedtime last night! A new set of dies is already in the mail!
Now...we await the new fabric from Spoonflower. They are running late this time. Maybe MLK holiday put them behind schedule.
