We have had the mother of electrical and rain storms today - flash flooding, hail and lightning all over the place - it flooded the local community centre where I teach patchwork on wednesday evenings, so those who braved the rain came to my house to sew instead - it's still raining and the pool looks like it's about to overflow - and given the pool pump has seized (the man is coming out on Friday to either fix or replace it), we may be swimming in our beds!! I'm also just a little concerned about my vegie patch - I was very happy about how things are growing out there, but the hail may have decimated it - I'll have a look tomorrow.
But, onwards and upwards....since the last time I reported on a WIP Wednesday, there has been some progress:
I made more hexies and cut out some 'plain' ones, so now I have 26 - I think another 14 or so and I can start putting them together with sashing - then a couple of borders and the top will be ready. The hexies are hand pieced, but everything else will be done by machine.
I started and completely finished a quilt that will go into my shop (either at Etsy or Madeit)
Made a few more FWQA blocks (blogged about here)
I'm now over half way on these so that feels pretty good.
I finished a UFO (now in my Etsy shop)
I lined some pouches with my hand dyed fabric, and listed those in my Etsy shop
...and on the Long-arm side, I've quilted one very large charity quilt, a lap size client quilt and loaded a queen size client quilt ready for quuilting tomorrow.
