was working on. There is one completed and hanging from the bookshelf in my sewing area for a guide.
Yesterday proved to be a "lost day" sewing wise. I got off another tangent and started cleaning off and cleaning out the crud on my keyboard. It looks wonderful but after all that, I found I had buggered up the space bar. I lost and then found the wire that is under the key but it still sticks---badly. That is kind of frustrating so I ended up pulling out an old backup that may or may not have problems of its own, LOL.
After I had posted on Saturday, I sewed my way through the pile of cut 6.5 inch blue squares till I ran out of background squares. I knew that was going to happen. I figured I could count up a little easier once I saw what remained blue fabric wise. Amazingly, I only have to cut for what would be 15 blocks once completed. I am still not sure how many blocks I need for the veteran's quilt---5 x8 will finish a hair short and about 5 inches narrower than requested but how married are they to 60 x 90 anyway??? 6 x8 might be okay. Wouldn't you rather have one a little undersized than no quilt?
I am trying to use the bits of leftover yardage and strips from previous projects for both prints and backgrounds. I'll dig thru the white bin in a bit.
Today's main project will be to finish up the block on the small cutting board before the pieces scatter and complete the half sewn big 4 patches There, I have given myself a short range goal. My blog will hold me accountable.
Classic Desserts cookbook but I found it online on cooks.com HERE.
Of course, baking shot the temperature in the house up to about 84 and that was with the a/c on. This bakes in about 20 minutes since you use a jelly roll plan but still have to preheat. UGH. I imagine that the gas dryer was not helping matters any either. We are under a heat advisory again today from 12-7. BUT I see some cloud cover rolling in and there is a possibility of t-storms. Other parts of the country are in the same boat, no doubt since these are the dog days of summer.
