Next decision.... the last ones I made were centered on the square. I think these will be set on the diagonal.
Then size.... I could not find the previous heart... in fact, I remember seeing it a few weeks ago and tossed it out! Thank goodness for blogs - I searched on Heart a Day and found where I had a link to the coloring pages. I printed out 2 options and went with a smaller one. This fits on a 5.5 inch background nicely for a 5 inch finished square. I had purchased a yard of a white flowered print a few months ago. I think it will work nicely with the purple.
All the decisions for today are made. Time to prep. I found a ruler with markings for 5.5 inches square and centered the heart and drew around it with a white board marker.
Remove the ruler and pin in place. Six blocks prepped.
Florida relaxed the stay at home this week and Emily's horse academy where she rides opened up. There were just 2 people riding in the ring when Emily was there. She was so happy to get back to riding. The stay at home has kept the cases landing in hospitals low in our area. I think 26 total hospitalizations in our county over the last 2 months. The number of cases are going up still, as expected. We as a family plan to be thoughtful and still limit going out. We figured riding is low risk. I don't see us going shopping for anything other than grocery or Lowes for gardening things. We don't plan to eat in restaurants any time soon. Small calculated risks. It was close to feeling like 90 degrees while she was riding. Thank goodness the arena and where the parents sit are in the shade.
I had today off from my 'normal' job and helped Greg with pool cleaning today. Then it was grab a shower and bring Emily to horses. Home to make Taco Salad for Emily and Taco meat for the rest of us for dinner. It finally cooled down so I got more of the driveway power washed.... this time it was about 1.5 hours. I figure I have about 45 minutes left for the very end of the driveway - we have a lot of concrete for our driveway and it is pretty long! At least it will look clean and bright for a little while before the mold and mildew settle in on it again. A never ending battle down her in Florida.
Must go stitch.
