I don't know about you but I had another hectic weekend. Saturday was an all day EMT training up in Buffalo (translate 2.5 hours driving and 8 hours of class). Lunch was excellent tho.
Mother's Day was spent at Genesee Country Village & Museum with Mom. It was not only opening weekend but also chocolate weekend! I'll share pictures of the choco and fashion show another day. I packed a lunch and we made a few stops on the way home where Dad grilled dinner. A good weekend but I was whooped given the middle of the night rescue call so I crashed on the couch, cuddling with my girls. You can translate all that to mean I didn't touch my sewing machine...again!
I've finished block #1 for Karen's Value Proposition QAL. I am not sure that my fabrics are exactly as described for the lesson but it was fun to dig through my strip bins to find coordinating fabrics and I like the block. Mom liked it enough to want to confiscate it. LOL!
I've also started on block #2. Interestingly I found a dark teal color similar to what I used in block #1. I have at least one more dark teal so I've committed to finding some more dark teals to be used with whatever scraps I have around and that will give me the continuity that I like for scrappy projects. :) I also changed the middle hexie in this block. It was supposed to be a fussy cut from a "dark medium" to match where I have the teal. Except I found this great (light) batik that matches the green and both greens match the tiny pineapples in the teal fabric. It was perfect so I took the liberty. Go me!
Block #3 will be posted this Friday. I am not holding my breath that I will be ready on time since I have something to do every evening this week, I have yet to start the May Hexie Blog BOM and I have several classes to prep for, but I am definitely looking forward to seeing what Karen has in store for us.
