I have stalled a bit on my hexagons (part of Lynne and Gayle's Hexalong) -- primarily because my 2" diamonds are all tied up, I'm waiting for some more precut ones, and I don't feel like using homemade ones. But here is where things stand, with many (most) of my hexies put to the side for the time being, and the "constellations" taking centrestage:
I know what you're thinking: that woman should sew less and paint more! Boy, does our front porch need to be re-stained. In my own defense, I have been planning to tackle that project, but this summer has been too hot and steamy for painting. For now, I hope you can just appreciate the rustic look.
In an effort to use less paper I raided my stash for 5 yards of fabric and turned it into a whole lotta napkins. But since there are five of us, I think I might need more yet.
And a new project is brewing; can't tell you much about it, but here are the first 10 blocks using what you might recognize as Cynthia's "Garden Fence"design. More to come!
So there we go: one project on hold, one very mundane project complete, and one fun project begun. Whatever you are tackling today, I hope your week gets off to a good start!
