Wednesday was a busy and chilly day – my goodness the wind – one would think I was still in the northern states! Tuesday was 65 and storms, a cold front clashing with a warm front – by yesterday morning it was 42 degrees when I got up and down to 36 by afternoon – the wind chill must have been at 30! and the daffodils have buds on them – wild weather – but we almost always have a day or two like this in January. Can you all believe this is the last day of January! Time flies when you stay busy doesn’t it.
Other than running out to the fitness center and the grocery store I was home. Reading, printing out fabric, getting applique pieces ready for another block – a little tv – busy.
Colors picked out for applique – now today I want to get these cut out and glue basted in place on the second William Morris block for “Fantasy Flowers”
More Hexies ready for the “Diamonds are Forever” quilt-I didn’t piece any though, I just printed a bunch more and got them cut. I did sew a little on Patchwork of the Crosses – the block I showed the other day – but didn’t get a photo.
I have 27 more fat eight’s from the bundle that I have been printing out for the hexies that need to be printed out on still. Wow that was a big bundle I won of that last year – there had been 40 in it. I plan on trying to spend time 3 or 4 days a week printing out fabric for an hour or two and I will have full boxes here before you know it to work with. I have order a jelly roll of fabric in these color groupings (I think) not sure from the photo but I’m pretty sure it will go ok with these and others that I will pull from the stash. I hadn’t ordered anything from the Missouri Quilt Company and wanted to check and see how they are – the daily deals are really great bargains – I will have to keep an eye on that. I hadn’t planned on more fabric – we all know how that goes! I’ll be selective!
