Tuesday night I was able to attend a zoom presentation by Gyleen Fitzgerald on her It's a Polygon affair. It was a really interesting presentation. Turns out she is an engineer and from a 60 degree diamond shape, she showed how you get the pyramid (half), cone (1/4 off the top) and hexagon shapes (1/4 off the top and bottom). She also explained how they all play nicely together. That was followed by a slideshow of some quilts she designed using the different shapes and how color changes the design. Each of her quilts has a name and a story of how she came up with it which was fun to hear. Sew many possibilities when you add new shapes in the making of quilts.
Grandma called around 9PM. She just got home and is happy to be there. The tests showed her heart was fine and they are puzzled as to what happened Sunday. She is on a 10 day no lifting and no driving.
Lets see - Monday after school Em needed a book to read so we headed to the library to check out a book. Aidan decided to go too. One of the people that worked at their elementary school saw us and commented on how big they were - taller than Mom even! Yes, the boy has passed me and Em is only about 2 inches shorter than me! I guess they have changed a lot in a year and two years!
Today - after picking up the kiddo's from school and dropping them home, I had to go 30 minutes across town and collect some specific cookies for one of my parents. I chatted a bit with the other troop leader... who happens to be originally from Vermont! I've met her once or twice before. I arrived home to Aidan making a bag of mashed potato. Greg was emptying the dishwasher and had turned on the skillet I had the asparagus sitting in some water waiting to cook. Dinner was in the crock pot - Roasted Chicken in the crock pot. I didn't have the herbs so just tucked some spring onions and garlic inside the cavity. Once I took the chicken and carrots out, there was about 3 cups of liquid. I started it with no liquid and love the surprise of it. Half the liquid got made into gravy by Greg and the other half was used to make a box of stuffing by Emily. I guess everyone participated in making some portion of the meal tonight! I have a nice bit of the chicken left over which will be made into chicken pot pie for dinner tomorrow night - thanks Julierose for the idea!
While listening on the Zoom I prepped some green hexagons and got one of them stitched down.
I also cut the parts for the other 3 square in a square units for the Harmony sew along. The first one is completed but I will plan to make 4 blocks for a throw size.
