Happy Dancing



I'm happy dancing today because 600 flying geese are now 100 units!  I am ready to start working on some 4 and 9 patches for the Hawaiian Sunset 1845 quilt.

See the lone goose in front?  I thought I was one short so I made another one.  Then when I was doing the final pressing and stacking, one unit looked funny.  It has 7 geese...so now there is a lonely little bird.


I think next I will pin these into groups of 4 since that is what goes into each block.  I am so happy with how these turned out.  


I almost forgot to sew yesterday.  The father of these 2 lovelies put in a new sliding glass door for us.  I was pretty busy being Gramma and then when they went home, I kind of collapsed into the recliner for a while.  After dinner, I started knitting and the next thing I know, I'm in bed.  Then I remembered I hadn't sewed yet so I got up and sewed for a few minutes........seriously.  Am I nuts or what! So it's now 27 days of sewing every day!!!

What's next for me today?  The garden......green beans need to be picked and canned.  Good thing I got that sewing out of the way early today.

Yea for sewing even if it's just a little bit of time. Gramma time is important too. Good for your son to help with a new Sliding door. I'm watching over your shoulder here. I can't wait to see the finished Blocks, and quilt top.
