I set aside these two-inch squares, wrote that very sketchy note/plan, and wrapped it all up in another piece of paper, stuck a rubber band around it and stuck it in a drawer to be worked on after Grand Illusion. I'm sure I saw a quilt or block on a blog or in a store advertisement or who-knows-where, that I thought would be great to do, maybe for my grandson?, but I have no real clue! I didn't make note of where I saw what - guess I thought I'd remember, and clearly I don't. I suppose I could use the line my dad is now sarcastically saying "maybe it's that dementia". Should I be worried? And better yet, will I be able to figure out and make whatever I thought about? I even wrote down a project # for it and that I'd spent .8 of an hour selecting those 2" squares! Even if I don't remember, I can put them away and start any one of hundreds of projects available, or make an effort at finishing the double-digit number of flimsies awaiting a finish!
Lest you be thinking about this time, that I'm done with G.I., I'm not, I am still making progress, but I only have a couple more days. I will be leaving on Tuesday barring any potential delays.
|The rows are done and I laid them out over the stair railing to get an idea of how it was looking. Looks pretty much like so many others. Are you all tired of seeing the same quilt, same colors everywhere you look?|
|Here I have the sashing strip rows attached to the rows of blocks.|
|Here they are all sewn together and placed in a more, ahem, photographic display (?).|
|And laid out on the railing with the photo taken from the top of the stairwell instead of from the hallway door.|
