I have finished the borders for my Celtic Solstice quilt when the blocks aren't even half way done. Any progress is good progress!
I finished the 32 hexies I need to make the February BOM. Tomorrow night is hexie night so maybe I can make some good headway on assembling the heart ... and then get on to the 4 leaf clover for March.
|Seems it's time to recover the ironing board - my lime green cover is looking pretty dingy|
I also had to baste more black hexies to be used in my twisted hexies. I generally only make enough at one time to use up the pile of 2" hexies - which means I'll be able to baste about 5 more tonight. I've also bundled up the rest of the half hexie batiks into about a dozen sets. Now I really need to lay out the large rosettes on the bed to see if I have enough pieces cut or I'll need more.
And last night's lesson? It's ok to stick a threaded needle in your loosely knit sweater while you binder clip the next piece to baste but it's NOT ok if you are getting up to check your cell in the studio, letting the cat in the dining room door and then switching the DVD back in the living room. I sat back down on the couch, covered up with the afghan and then noticed the needle was no longer stuck in my sweater. I found the thread stuck to the afghan but after patting down the afghan and crawling around on the floor in 3 (large) rooms last night and again this morning the needle is no where to be found. It's one thing if I get stuck but I would be horrified if something happens to the cats or to a guest who sits on the couch. I was/am soooooooo furious with myself...
