Project Linus - Purple Pinwheels
I still have lots of the purple leftover hsts that I was not able to incorporate into this quilt. I had cut a lot of the purple/purple hsts in half to make my hourglass blocks for the border and of course I had cut way too many of them. I am not too sure what to do with all of these bits and pieces...I may just put the triangle shapes into a little baggie and add them into my 'triangle' parts bin. I use these triangular shaped bits for the corners when string/crumb piecing. Who knows there just may be a crumb quilt coming that only uses purple in the corners - but for now it will have to wait! I am linking up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge here. Hop on over to soscrappy's blog see what everyone else has made with their purple scraps.
On a different note, today I had intended on spending a good part of the day in my sewing room but instead I will be driving to Toronto and picking up my Mom, sisters Cheryl and Christine and nieces Deanna and Eva-Anne. We will be driving to see my sister Glenda in hospital. She was in a car accident yesterday morning and her car was totalled - thankfully she only has a fractured sternum. She is supposed to be released today so we will be bringing her back to her home and making sure that she has everything that she needs. I live about an hour north of Toronto and she lives about 45 mins west of Toronto, so it will be a long day for me and I know I will be quite tired by the time I get back home. It will be a huge relief to see her and to make sure that she really is okay. I do know that the type of injury she has (her air bag did not go off so her chest area was not protected from the seat belt or steering wheel) does take quite a bit of time to heal completely and that it is quite painful. I hope for a speedy recovery for her.
