Log Cabin Progress
I've been working away in my spare time on my Manx Log Cabin blocks. I did one on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. I have one more yellow block and then two that are half yellow, half orange and this row will be done. And then on to another color!
Yesterday I made a tomato pie - perfect if you have lots of extra tomatoes. I forgot to save the recipe on my computer, but if you use google I'm sure you'll find something similar - it's just sliced tomatoes in a pre cooked pie crust, topped with a mixture of mayo, chopped green onions, mozzarella cheese, basil. Easy peasy and so good.
Today is my birthday! It's a BIG one - 60! I'm spending it doing exactly what I want - sewing. And we're having lunch with the family - both girls, both SIL's and of course, SADIE. Simple pleasures are the best.
I had planned to ship out my Hexie Love Curved Hexagon Rulers yesterday, buy the mailman came too early. So they'll be going out today. There is still plenty of time to order one before our Curved Hexie Stitch Along begins. Just send me an email - firstname.lastname@example.org.
I decided that videos will be the best way to demonstrate each step, so I'll be posting them on my blog (and on Youtube) each week. I have ordered an iPhone tripod to help me film.
I will tell you this about the stitch along quilt: we'll be working from the center out. There will be no separate 'rosettes' to put together. We'll just keep adding to the center and work our way out. I don't know how big it will be. I don't know how much fabric you'll need - just start working with what you have on hand. If you have a favorite fat quarter pack that you love, grab it. I'll only be just a bit ahead of you!
I hope you enjoy your day as much as I will. Stay safe!
