Writing this on Monday - last week seems a year ago.
Sewing - I've made more progress on the pineapples for the block swap - but not done with them all yet. For the last block I tried a different way to make the center and I like it alot better. Instead surrounding the center block with strips and then trying to figure the stitching lines for the next addition, I cut two squares slightly larger than the center square, and cut them in half from point to point - then I pressed in so I could see the center of the triangle and the center of the square - then placed them on top of each other and sewed. I trimmed the first two sewn down before putting the last two down. It was they very easy to sew and trim and mark the next sewing line.
For the class I made some half log cabins - and for this week I'm supposed to have the top done. I doubt that will happen though as I'm still working on the pineapples.
I haven't started on my new Lone Robin. Want to do that. So far clues have been points, strips, and curves!
Not sewing stuff
I made a good chicken pot pie, curried chick pea dish and bought prepared food from Costco.
Very tired - so busy too - but have not finished the bookkeeping for the taxes yet so still have that hanging over me.
Am listening to the Elm Street quilters series. Now on the Union Quilt - she mentions how the ladies had to do lists. Could that really be? Hard to imagine people making lists back then. I need to check with cousins to see what regiment his relative was in the civil war.
I've made my way thru Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and no Enterprise. I thought I had seen most of these before, but watching in order I understand things more - and enjoy them more too.
Exercised three times, walked and chatted three times - rest of the time was sewing or thinking about sewing and cooking.
