I had hopes of getting in some slow Sunday stitching at the swim meet last Sunday, but it was just too crowded at the pool and too dark on the way home for me to be able to work on my hexie project.
My storage case remained unopened all day Sunday.
I did a little slow stitching yesterday on my Martha Washington’s Flower Garden. I started and almost finished block #18. In this photo, I’m still working on sewing the seams on the outer row of hexies … when I finish that, I will add to the two side hexies and move on to block #19.
I’m not sure just how many blocks I’ll make … I suspect that it will be a decision made on how much desire I have to make more blocks … I have plenty of fabric to cut more 2 1/2” squares … not to mention that since most of them (if not all) are Kansas Troubles fabrics, I won’t need to have my arm twisted to buy more fabrics to keep making blocks! I do know that I plan to put these together in a tumbling block setting, so the number of whole blocks that I need will be divisible by 3.
I watched the hockey game and a couple of basketball games … not one of the 3 teams that I was cheering for won their games. We watched the second half of another basketball game (our team lost) ... and my hockey team is playing right now … perfect opportunity to finish up block #18 and get a good start on block #19 before we head to small group this evening.
I ought to be working on my Storm at Sea … I was hoping to get it completely quilted before I start on DD’s herringbone quilt. She's chosen her two colors: Kona Steel and Silver.
Speaking of DD, she started to go back downhill last weekend and it wasn’t letting up. She had a follow up doctor’s appointment on Wednesday and got stronger meds. As of Friday, she hadn’t noticed any real improvement … she has moments where she’s feeling better (not great by any means, but well enough to get out of bed), but those times don’t last too long and then she tanks. I’m praying that she will be feeling much better tomorrow. I won’t lie … I’m worried about her. This has been doing on for over 2 weeks now.
We watched 42 last night. It was a good movie, but it didn’t do justice to the struggles Jackie Robinson faced in 1947 (and subsequent years) … time constraints, I know. Speaking of movies, I need to make a list of movies we want to watch. We don’t go to the movie-aters (movie theaters in T#3-speak) so all too frequently I forget what we wanted to see when we decide to have a movie night here at Chez Nana. Any recommendations for good movies to rent on DVD?
Have a superb Sunday!
