So many of you suggested that I bring along the final rows of Diamonds are Forever to finish when we travel and then add them to the body of the quilt when I get home. This is a good idea and even though I have two quilting projects and the sock loom – I thought it was a good idea too as it is so close to being finished (other than a border that is) so yesterday I got out my diagram and counted how many white hexies do I need to finish this quilt – then I got out my box of hexies to see how many I had. I think (I say think because the photo is little and the hexies are tiny to count) I need 100 more. I got busy printing out what I needed and was done quickly. I think I had 105 printed out. I am linking to a Quilters Readers Garden today and Confessions of a Fabric Addict
I sat down and worked on it for a little bit as I would like to be done with this last long row and have it attached.
More work on Wednesday night for Insanity Revisited – when I said I saw the half way point – that is what I mean – I see the half way point on the previous blog post photo but I am not there yet.
This is the block I pick up on last might.
Yesterday record low temperatures were set in Arkansas – it started the day at 66 degrees and dropped to 63 last evening – wow! can’t remember ever having a July temp that low because I believe the newsman said it was 1923 the last time it was this low? something like that anyhow. What happened to global warming LOL. I did have windows open for awhile and by late afternoon I was becoming chilly even though it was 71 in the house – I get chilled easily and the breeze coming in from the windows made me put on a pair of socks and closed half of the windows and shut the fans off! I wonder what it will be like today – I’m going to visit my mom today and it is usually cooler up there in northwest Arkansas – we will see – a light cardigan is coming with me – and socks! just in case they are needed.
