Yesterday was one of those days when I just wasn’t much in the mood to sew/quilt. The last of the hexies that were needed to finish that one area that I showed yesterday – six hexies? on Handful of Scraps got done and that was it! So all of the hexies that are on the wall are sewn together now – that was progress I guess.
I got my fabric project box out for Williamsburg Beauty to give it a clean up and remind myself what was in the box – I really had forgotten what fabric was in the box. Plenty in here all stacked up. Linking to My Quilt Infatuation today.
I found one more piece that goes with the colors and is a different color than one already in the border it will be the next border – I will cut about a 2.5 inch strip from this to go the next round – refer to the upper photo for the next round. It will go after the light beige. The hexie chain will be centered over the beige and will overlap a little on both of the brown borders. So I guess that was progress – a decision made.
I got the Handful of Scraps box out to look at that project too but in the end I just didn’t feel like cutting hexies out even though with the die cutter it would be easy. I am linking to Sew Fresh Quilts today and Jo’s Country Junction.
Just one of those days! The deer have been back eating the sweet potatoes which I had taken the wire covering off of only a couple weeks ago because it appeared they had left the area – wrong! I went out today to check on what was left in the garden and the leafs on the plants were about half eaten. I dug them up – boiled and mashed all the small ones to use in muffins and things – 2 cups worth mashed and I have about 10 big enough to bake – all in all not bad for the little area I had planted and the battle with the deer. These potatoes keep well and good thing because it is just me and Melanie that eat them.
So how was your day? Hope you quilters out on the east coast well be ok with the hurricane and hope it turns out to sea before it gets to Florida. I know I have a few readers in the Caribbean but I don’t hear from y’all often I sure hope you came through the bad stuff ok too – I imagine some of you lost power and internet hope you all will be back on line soon!
