The other day I had some computer problems and keep finding more things that had gotten messed up that I hadn’t realized. I think they are all found now but my live writer that I used for the blog was one that needed some fixing. Mike took care of it this morning so I am back up and running.
One long row has been added to one side of Handful of Scraps and a little more on one end. That is the way it goes with hexies – a little at a time and eventually it turns out – sometimes you don’t even have a plan in mind but it evolves into something. Right now I know I will have 3 rows of neutrals on each side – then I think I will do 3 rows of colors and 3 more rows of neutrals. Well there be anything else or will this end at near or at couch size? I’m not really sure. I know there are a lot of other quilts that I want to make and I don’t want to spend my whole life working on one LOL.
I got tired of long rows so right now I decided to do about 5 pieces in the row together and add the next part of a row and add it like that. I have another section ready to add to it today.
Yesterday I was busy pressing pieces of neutral fabric and cutting in strips for the piano key border on Fall Harvest. Instead of a big queen size like I usually do I am thinking of making this one a large wall size quilt. I have to remind myself now and then just how many queen size quilts I have and in the “to be quilted” basket I think I have 4 waiting in line.
We keep hearing more and more devastation in South Texas and South Louisiana – it is just horrible flooding there, it is going to take them years to get the place livable again. How many more towns will be flooded I wonder, the military besides the national guard are rescuing people now. I can’t imagine having that kind of damage and know that a lot of the people do not have flood insurance. I’m sure we will be hearing about it here in the states for months to come. I hope the water recedes as quickly as it came but I’m sure it won’t. It will take a long time for people to be out of the shelters and have places to live – I wonder how it will be handled.
Craftsy just sent out a note that there is a one day only Flash Sale on Clearance Items. I haven’t checked it out and don’t know what there is but if you have been watching any items on clearance this might be the time to get them.
