Saturday check in
I've been piddling around the house today doing little home tasks and such. A sewing room vacuuming was top priority as I had been paper piecing a good bit in past days and the floor looked like it!
I am up to block 27 on my FWIS endeavors. 26 will need to be re-done or replaced as I got an iron stain on it plus one segment is a little wonky. Wonky enough that you can tell that the piece is crooked. A little demoralizing after spending the better part of an afternoon working on it. Thankfully, the one I finished up with was a variation of a wrench type block and it went so much better---fewer pieces to mess up too. You will see it soon enough.
Actually I was down to one kitted up envelope but the block it contained has been moved down to one of the lower, later rows. I cut out three more to get to the 30. At this point I am a quarter of the way done. I will be putting this aside for a short time. Jane and Aline are pinning a QOV top up for me to quilt as I type this probably. If they plan on getting this turned in before the facility opening I will need to quilt it up for them fairly soon. Monday and Tuesday probably. I play with my 3 blocks today and Sunday in other words.
There is supposedly some rain on the way in and I wish it would just get it over with. I want those fall temps again and lower humidity. I let my hair air dry today and you would not believe how curly it is---ringlets in the underneath layers. Why bother with the hot blow dryer if it is going to do something like it is did anyway?
Well, off to whip up a block called Swallow---odd looking thing that dates back to 1929. Fits my vintage type plan anyway.
