This morning’s view on a very windy hike!
A warm wind was blowing from the south --- oh, it’s going to be a hot one!
Unless some storm clouds can gather and rain down to cool everything off.
I’m feeling SO productive! I am nearly ready to assemble blocks for the mystery!
I know there are some that are the “one block at a time because I have to see how it is going to really look and I don’t want to be bored on the assembly line” type ---as for me, I’m a unit girl. I power through.
If there are 509 9 patches in a quilt….I’ll do them. ALL. Before moving on to the next unit. I just get into a rhythm and I go. This quilt is no different….I’m working on the units the same way I will write the directions so I can see how it is going to come together for everyone. I want it fun, and at the same time I want it scrambled enough to keep you guessing until the end!
Last night I’d gone about as far as I could with the mystery productivity and I switched gears:
Carolina Chain Blocks!
All of the blocks with the light chains are done ---now I’m working on the ones with the dark chains.
This is that productivity thing again. Working on one thing at a time keeps me from screwing up --- or I screw up LESS anyway. But it took until last night to have enough of both kinds of blocks before I could start laying them out:
I need more variety!
Sadie thinks so too!
But it is going to be a cute quilt and it has used up a ton of scrap strips….I’ve been RUTHLESS! There is stuff from the 1970s on forward in here. Just playing color on neutral, neutral on color.
Sadie wondering if it is safe to come down stairs with all the quilt mess!
I’m headed back home this morning. There are book orders to fill – I’ll get them to the post office tomorrow morning on my way back up to meet Tonya Siobhan.
Tonight I’m going to watch some Tennis. I will probably also LEARN more about Tennis than I ever wanted to know, but there is a bit tournament or match or whatever you want to call it in Winston Salem tonight and we are going.
In my mind I’m wondering…..
Can I sneak in my busy bag and my hexies??
