Gosh -have you had the high winds yesterday and today like we have. Amazing. I normally don’t hear the wind howling because of the location of my apartment but last night it was so loud and when I came home from work it was amazing how windy it was.
It started out looking like this
The photo makes it look a bit nicer than it was – since the day started out very overcast and cold and it looked like it could snow….. (did I say snow – well it was in the forecast but I think we have avoided it). Day before yesterday 75 and I wore sandals to work; yesterday and today – 30’s – I think the sandals have seen their last day of wear for the year but as it was November 17 – it’s still hard to believe it was warm for so long.
A friend came over late morning and we spent several hours in my sewing room working on our projects.
I pulled out my fabrics for one of The Loopy Ewe Monthly Mixer projects. The one I was working on is for the monthly of August where the challenge is to make something either Olympic related/themed or representing the colors of Rio (in honor of the summer Olympics).
I’m just doing a simple sashed 4-patch block in a positive / negative type style to make a lap quilt.
I managed to get twenty-two blocks cut and sewn so far today and need to figure out how many more I want to make.
Here’s the blocks I made today — they are not in their final arrangement — just stuck up on the design wall for the time being until I get the rest of my blocks made.
