After planting the garden Sunday and then adding air to the car tire (we will see how long before the needs air light come on again.... sigh, I just got 4 new tires about 4 months ago!). A trip through the car wash and a vacuum of the car. Getting groceries and putting things away, it was close to 2PM. I did process some things - seal-a-mealed the boneless, skinless thighs, made a homemade mix for the Italian seasonings salad dressing, cut up the watermelon and planned the meals for the week. Then, I got to sew!
I dug through the scraps (not many in green since I tossed a whole bucket of them last year when the cat got mad at me - it was easier to toss than launder all of that!). I wanted brights to finish of the last 2 blocks needed for this quilt since I have a dark green and a sage green already.
I tried laying them out to see how they would look. I'll be playing with them a bit still I think. You always see things in the photos that you don't see in real life. I think this would end up around 40x50 right now. I 'might' add sashing and cornerstones to make it a little bigger. We will see. I had hoped to have this finished by the end of the month.... but I am thinking that will not be happening. On the positive - it is that much closer to becoming a finished top now that the last 2 blocks are done!
Sorry I have not visited links. The internet this weekend has been horrible. I am very sick of the circling wait symbol when trying to surf the web or watch tv (we don't have cable). Hopefully the second call to the internet company will get a tech out here to figure out what happened. In the past, every time a new house goes in, our reliability drops. It has been stable for a couple of years, but we noticed someone was playing with the lines up the street recently and I've been having issues ever since at work. It got really bad this weekend, where tv was not working. so hopefully a tech can figure it out and 'fix' it. When you work from home and need a reliable internet connection, things like this are not very helpful. *** Edited - of course, right after I told work I had internet issues and was off for the afternoon, it amazingly popped from 3.4 Mbps or less to 20 MBPS! Arrgghh. I'm guessing it was on their end and someone finally figured it out! I checked and HBO Max actually came up - which it has not since Friday night. So frustrating but fingers crossed it is fixed.
That is frustrating when your internet is not working well, especially if you need it for work! Hope you can get it figured out. We don't have cable anymore either, and stream most everything, and do often get that pause/buffering effect, too. Your Garden Path blocks are so pretty! With or without sashing, they make a neat design!
Those Garden Path blocks make a lovely quilt. Hope your Internet stays up and going. ;^)
I hope your internet stays up - ours is a problem at times to going in and out and we are in the country so it will never be great!
The quilt top looks so pretty
Your Garden Patch blocks look amazing together, block by block. It will be interesting seeing how it will look with sashing and corner stones. On My, it is frustrating when internet is down, we always have this problem here. Sure the problem was with the company. Glad to know it is OK now. Have a great week, Deb.
Love the garden path blocks! Internet issues are so annoying. I understand when we have a really bad storm or high winds but not otherwise. My experience is that it is usually the company. So glad your is better and hoping it stays that way. ~Jeanne
I'm looking forward to these blocks being transformed into a quilt top, Deb. It's going to be a gorgeous quilt when done!!
I love the way the blocks look together, without the nominated colour overpowering the blocks. I get your frustration with the internet. We are so reliant on it now. Thank goodness all appears well now.
Feline Fury is no fun. Ask me how I know. On the upside your Garden Path blocks are very bright and inviting. I would absolutely go to that garden :-) Wishing you a fast and reliable connection.
Very nice blocks, all looking good. And I have to ask, why did the cat get mad at you and take it out on your green scraps? Did he/she get locked in the roomz? Hope it's not going to be a continuing problem.
