I had a relaxing sewing and reading day yesterday. I finished the 16 blocks that I had started the night before. Now I need to cut a lot more light strips before I can go any farther. I pulled a pile of Kaffe fabrics to cut and I have some batik strips already cut that I just need to cut into lengths for the logs.
Since I was watching Series 1 of “Bones” on Netflix I had to keep sewing. I went down to the basement and cut a bunch more light triangles and then sewed 8 new star blocks. Since I’m having more fun with the log cabin blocks than the stars, I will make just one more star block and put them in the 4 x 6 configuration and add a border or 2 for a nice lap quilt and be done with this one. I have several projects I need to get serious about. I will have some quilts on display at the Ciel Gallery in Charlotte NC again in February and that means I need to get a few quilted.
This is what I am reading. I read it at least 5 years ago and knew that I would read it again some day. I love Rosamunde Pilcher’s style of writing and have read many of her novels. I decided the best day to start reading was on the winter solstice. I’m about a third of the way through it and am enjoying it as much as I did the first time.
