And Then There Were 37

I had a very productive weekend.  This morning I stopped to stake stock of where I stand with the triangle square blocks that comprise the center of Sue Garman’s Good Golly quilt.  I now have 37 of 48 finished.  The end of this step is in sight! 

I’ve also been busy doing a lot of this….
…so I can start building the borders of my hexagon quilt.  I saw this tip somewhere in blogland.  Use safety pins to position hexagons so that when you take the top off the design wall you can remember which piece goes where.

I will only be able to sew with my friends a short time today, so I intend to take some handwork.  Hopefully, I can join them for a longer stretch tomorrow.

Over the holidays we had to replace our washing machine and my computer.  It’s taking me a while to become comfortable with both of them, especially the computer.  Programs have to be reinstalled or, in the case of Office, replaced with newer versions.  Many of the things I did on auto pilot have to be relearned.  That’s okay.  The new system is proving to be much more reliable than the one we retired.

You are sure sewing up a storm! don't you love to see progress and feel the end is coming. Then on to another part to finish.
Computer woes...why can't they leave improvements alone and let things be. Hope it all goes smoothly.
