I had plans to do a lot yesterday and instead I barely got to anything on my list – it was just one of those days. My main plan was to start digging up a flower bed but it turned out to be too hard and dry! Instead I put the water hose on it and gave it a soaking – maybe I can do today instead? We will see.
I was going to get a lot of my diamonds done to get that border on Williamsburg Beauty going and I did get some done but not near that I had planned.
I must admit the reason I got sidetracked was Rebecca’s fault! it you stop by Quilting Everyday – a blog from Alaska where there is snow on the ground already you will see a 16 patch star pattern that I decided was perfect for my box of 2 inch squares!! I had to get my box of scraps off the shelf and decided this well be a leaders/enders project – except that rarely works for me – I usually just start making blocks. One 16 patch block done how many to go? I will add the half square triangles later (star points – could be a flying geese unit instead) – I will have to figure out what size those are unless some already knows? The squares in the corners are plain 2 inch squares to go with the 16 patch size. I’ll just keep this box on the floor by the machine and work on them as I feel. You can see a close up of the quilt on Rebecca’s blog. (these are easier to piece than the 1.5 inch pieces were – amazing what a 1/2 inch can be like.) I might decide that all the star points can be different colors and just finish one block at a time – very scrappy you know that is how I like things. I am linking to Quilt Story today.
I did roll the Final Frontier down on Sunday night and got a little bit done on that side and more last night as well.
A pumpkin has been picked up for Halloween – yet to decide how to carve it – or leave it plain? A fairly good size but not a jumbo.
We went to supper at Chili’s last night and I must say I am disappointed with the place – I used to like the look of it and the food – now the new modern look has no appeal – I loved the southwest décor with all the hanging baskets/plants and copper pots around, the ceramic tile tables – now – blah! and what is with the food – no matter what you order you get the same crappy rice dish (my opinion) as a side – sorry I don’t like the taste of it. It is like everything taste the same just has a different name. They had been changing the menu up for several years now and I have been disliking it with every change – now we finally have one in our little town and I could now care less! Oh well one less place to eat in our tiny little town unless you just want a hamburger – but there are better hamburgers at a place we go to specifically for that!
I wonder what I will get done with today!
