Double Delight....What about the indigo??
It was brought to my attention last night that I forgot to include the amount of indigo blue for the mystery! My ftp program wasn't working so I couldn't upload my edit...I found out why...the router had died. Bllahhh. I'm hooked up on my laptop in the dining room directly to the modem. I can't upload the website from here, my files are on the other computer.
But..just in case.... 3/4 a yard to 1 yard should do it..maybe a bit less....and it can be scrappy or not!
The rest of the info on the mystery quilt with the other yardage requirements can be found HEREalong with a bigger pic of my chosen fabrics.
Someone posted on quiltville chat: WHAT IF I DON'T LIKE BROWN? Well, choose something else! The quilt is basically 4 colors. Pink, blue, cheddar, brown. Neutral is neutral. The law of substitution applies. Switch your colors around, but as this is a mystery, I can't help 3,000 people individually make their fabric choices. :c) So what you can do, is sit out a couple steps. See how things are coming together for others. Join firstname.lastname@example.org and see the pics in the files of what everyone else is doing, and maybe something will spark your interest.
Or... you can wait a few weeks until people's quilts are DONE...and even though it won't be a mystery anymore, you'll know what goes where, make your choices, and then start sewing.
As to the time I'm writing this post? Oh yes..it's only 5:40am. I've been up an hour. *YAWN* I guess that body clock is still way off......
So as to the burnt out wireless router? Needless to say, I'll be off to Sam's Club this morning for a new one!
Inside a Working Windmill
In the mean time, before the router went belly up, I was able to upload my windmill pics to webshots....here you go! The name of the windmill is De Zandhaas. it is in Santpoort, NL, right outside of Haarlem.
It was built in 1779 (you can see the date near the top carved into the reeds that make the thatched roof). As a working windmill, it is used to grind flour. The wind turns the blades, the blades turn the stones that grind the flour.
There is a little shop inside where you can buy baking items as well as the flour. It was just so quaint and lovely!!
