This weekend was a mixed bag. It started out rough with a disappointing kidney appointment for Anne, but it improved greatly as the weekend went on. We spent a ton of time outdoors in the unseasonably HOT Washington weather. Seriously, we were in the mid-80s most of the weekend! We re-did our entire front yard and I planted more seedlings in our fledgling fruit and veggie garden. I’m really hoping something grows this year other than just weeds!
I did mange to find some time to work on my May Finish for A Lovely Year of Finishes (today is the last day to link up for May!). I got all my fabric cut for the last 2 Swoon blocks on Sunday, I also sewed all the flying geese for both blocks and the HSTs. Yesterday I worked on trimming those HSTs to size (during nap time of course) and I will hopefully start assembling the final blocks today!
Since I have no finished blocks to show you I thought I would show you something I have collected whilst making my Swoon blocks:
144 small Half Square Triangles – once trimmed they will measure to 2.5 inches. Now to figure out what to do with them…I’m thinking pillows to go with my gorgeous quilt, but I’m open to suggestions!
I hope everyone had a lovely weekend!
