FNSI - Dec 9 Results
30 String Blocks for Orca Bay
Things were humming in my sewing room starting fairly early in the afternoon and right up until after 10 pm. Of course, I did take a few little breaks (who would of thought that my family would want dinner????) but I did spend as much time as I could working along with all of my virtual sewing buddies. You would have thought with all that time spent in my sewing room I would have a lot more to show for my efforts but really all I could manage was 30 of the 64 5.5" red strings blocks required for the Orca Bay quilt. I enjoyed spending the time making them and I hope to work on them some more tomorrow. I was not able to continue with them today because I had to drive my son to school in Toronto for another exam. Our regional bus service is still on strike #%$*&! so we had to leave early this morning so my son could study in the university library in preparation for the exam. I got home at dinner time and here we are now, I just finished making dinner and I am too tired to work on Orca Bay. I love the richness of the reds in the string blocks - gorgeous. They look quite ratty because they need to be trimmed but I like to spray them with starch before trimming and I am all out. Thanks to Heidi and Bobbi for hosting another great and successful Friday Night Sew-In!
