We had a wonderful weekend! It was sunny and in the 70s...my sweetheart worked in the yard and the garden and it looks beautiful. We have 14 acres but the property is divided by a creek so we really live on and keep up the front 5-6 acres...the other side of the creek is woods and a meadow with a big pecan tree in the middle. Sweetheart keeps the meadow mowed but otherwise the woods are a haven for deer, turkeys and other "wildlife." I was able to work around in the house a little which made me very tired but very happy.
Can you see a theme? I'll cut 2 1/2" squares from all of these to use in making hexagons for a Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt. These are ones I'd started previously...I'm using the English paper piecing method...it's so easy and I can sit and make these.
I have seen some beautiful, less traditional hexagon blocks being made on some blogs with planned colors and fussy cutting. They are so very pretty! I can't wait to try that as well.
I enjoy so much reading blogs and I cherish the friends I've made. We may never meet but you bless my life.
OOPS!! Thank goodness I posted that picture of the spiderweb block with the white star. What I noticed as I looked at the picture (but didn't notice looking at the block itself...brain fog again?) was the lack of a seam allowance on two of the star points! SOOOOO...the block has been taken apart and that will be corrected...I want pointed stars :)
