I guess I’m all turned about after 6-7 days of busy-ness last weekend and earlier this week … as it surely doesn’t feel like Saturday to me.
I’ve been making up for “lost time” in the sewing room. I’ve got all 63 blocks pieced and am now sewing them into rows. I’ve finished 5 of the 9 rows … after I finish #9, it’ll be time to sew those rows together. I hope I can take a picture then … I won’t be done with the top as I’ll be adding borders … but it’ll be nice to have an idea of how the finished quilt will look.
I’ve been working on my Martha Washington’s Flower Garden blocks after dinner. I have hexies cut out for the current block and 2 more … then it’ll be time to start piecing the blocks together. I will still need to make partial blocks, but I’ll have a better idea of how many to make once I have the full blocks together. This is where a design wall would be a nice thing to have … although will EPP’d blocks stick to a design wall, I wonder? Once again, my photography skills leave a little to be desired (I even made sure that I took the picture near a south-facing window – there was no direct sunlight, but it should have been bright enough for more accurate photographs, or so I thought) … that inner ring is a more chocolate brown than it appears.
The sun is finally back … there’s just something about seeing the sun shining that makes my heart smile. Having 6-foot windows in a house with an open floor plan means there aren’t very many walls (for hanging quilts and pictures or placing furniture), but it does mean that there’s plenty of sun shining in.
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy! Have a great day!
