Thursday’s Rambles ~ 1 March 2012

Some fabrics I pulled out of my stash for a 60×60 quilt someone wants me to make them. Just has to be blue and grey with the state of Nevada somewhere on it. I have a design in mind. 🙂 After seeing them in the picture, I’m not sure about the two in the middle of the pack. I’ll have to go pick up a few FQ’s from Windy Moon.

A small project I’m working on using Lauren & Jessi Jung’s Flora fabric…using English paper piecing hexies.

Saw this on the way to work…looks like someone was drunk and didn’t realize that you can’t barrel through two work buildings and go down the hill to the road.

Today is windy with more snow on the way…just like yesterday.

Last Saturday after driving up to Pyramid Lake we came back home via Wadsworth to 80…just before Reno is Lockwood where we spied a new park. They’ve re-dug the riverbed in that area, un-doing the damage by the Corp of Engineers so many years ago…now the Truckee River flows through lots of meanders. The fishies are a lot happier too.

We rented a great movie the other night. The Way, an Emilio Estevez movie staring his dad, Martin Sheen. Highly recommend it.

Hexagon Dish Towels

Over at In Color Order’s blog I saw a very cool tutorial on embellishing dish/tea towels…and I needed a fast Christmas present!

Since I’ve already had a bunch of 1″ hexie card-stock cut out for my batik Grandma’s Flower Garden quilt, I used them…along with a Lauren & Jessi Jung Flora charm pack cut into quarters.

They’ll be perfect with a jar of my home-made jam!

Start of a Batik Grandma’s Flower Garden quilt

Not sure how big I’m going to get this…it’s now 12″x18″ in size. I find I like hand-stitching these guys using the English Paper Piecing method…until my CT kicks in and my hand goes numb. LOL! I thought I was using 1″ hexies, but looks to be 2″ from tip to tip (1.75″ from flat side to flat side).
