Yesterday I debated my options for what to work on next … and I decided to go with the Labor Day Stars. It turns out that I had a lot more of the components ready to go, so it seemed like a no brainer. I finished stitching up the last of the components and trimmed them down. I even got a bit of a start on putting those components together into blocks.
My time in the sewing room came to a screeching halt at 4:30, when I settled in my recliner to watch Game Two of the NLDS … it didn’t take long before I’d wished I had just stayed in the sewing room. My Blues didn’t fare much better later on that evening. But it wasn’t all bad news … I did get some connector hexies attached to my MWFG blocks.
I plan to spend much of today in a similar manner (albeit sans the sporting events). I’d like to get some of the Labor Day Stars blocks completed, followed by a late afternoon/evening spent stitching on more connector hexies.
That guy is a big one … those are good sized river rocks in the landscaping below, if that will give you an idea of the scale. When it became obvious that the Cardinals weren’t going to pull off a miracle, DH and I decided to get out for a short walk around the neighborhood. I was startled to see that praying mantis still hanging around our front door. I just went out front to check to see if he’s still here … and yes, he is.
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy ... have a great day!
