One of eight

There are 8 pieces in this section, and I thought I would bang this out in no time. Ha! I don't really enjoy applique, and so it's not in my wheelhouse. That little stem took me at least two hours. I made it harder on myself than it needed to be. I spent a bunch of time trying to figure out how to turn the stem inside out (you don't). Finally looking at the bias bar I figured out that it doesn't get turned inside out. A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

Seven more to go, but not today.

I prefer not to think before speaking. I like being as surprised as everyone else by what comes out of my mouth.

Center Star - Done!

I like it! And now, I have to work on the cattails. They're big pieces, but I think it's going to take a while.

Alcohol doesn't solve problems. But then again, neither does milk.

Lone Star Points - Done

Back from a weekend in California. Harriet had a surprise 60th birthday party for Abner...he doesn't read my blog, but you can't just be putting stuff out there on the internets. After work today, Al and I walked for two miles over at Lost Mountain, and I worked on completing the Lone Star part of Cattails.  Here is one of the 8 star points.

My doctor told me to start killing people. Well...not in those exact words. She said I had to reduce the stress in my life. Same thing.

Loving that countdown clock! Love that the remaining numbers have a 1 in front of them! Woot! Woot!

Yesterday was the first day that I have done any serious sewing, and I went back to Cattails.  I completed the Lone Star part. When you make a mistake, rip it out, and make the same mistake again, that is The Universe telling you it's time to stop sewing. So I did. Unfortunately, it's going to be over a week before I can come back to this again. I'm having dinner with my replacement on Tuesday night, and Wednesday and Thursday I will be in Arlington.
I've had just about enough for one week...and yes, I know it's Monday.
