Heritage blocks are finished
There are 60 pinwheel four-patch blocks, and 12 of each of the other two triangle blocks. This quilt had better be beautiful because I've already spent three weekends on it! LOL. Now I'm at the sashing stage ... I'll be sashing like forever. If anyone hears incoherent babbling from the Left Coast, that'll be me!
Some miscellaneous thoughts:
~ Has anyone but me noticed that word verification letters are starting to make sense? Or maybe I've become dotty in my old age. I'm getting things like "popitle" and "wamcoot" and "bustar." I mean, they're not really words but at least there are syllables.
~ It hailed so hard last night that there was what looked like snow drifts on the curbs as I was heading to work. We had temps in the high 80s and low 90s last week. High today 53; low tonight 38. There's snow on the mountaintops. I guess Mother Nature didn't get the memo that our ten minutes of winter was over two or three weeks ago.
~ I need a new mattress. Mine is only about four years old, but it has a pillowtop only on one side. I can only spin the mattress, not flip it. I end up sleeping in the same two indentations. I guess I could find someone to sleep on the other side to even it out ... naw! I'll be mattress shopping in the near future!
~ Note to self: Check the gas gauge before you get on the freeway! There won't always be a convenient exit with a gas station when the QuiltMobile start sputtering!
~ Another note to self: Turn on the clothes dryer when you put almost every single pair of decent underwear you own in it. Remembering 10 minutes before you have to leave for work doesn't cut it. Guess it's a good thing I didn't throw away all of the old ones!
~ Last note to self: Don't forget to take your shopping list with you to the market. Going in there for one thing and getting home $120 poorer without the one thing you went for is not very bright!
