OhMyGoodness, how did Monday get here so fast!
I'm continuing to sew every day.
Whether it's string blocks or hand piecing.
This is the center hexi for Rosette 9 of Millefiore.
Her name is Judy.
I call her the Center of Attention.
I'm still thinking of replacing the center with an orange hexi.
This is round 1.
With six different fabrics,
it took me a bit of time to figure out which layout I liked best.
I think I changed it 9 different times.
And I haven't started sewing it together yet,
so I could change my mind 9 more times.
I bought a Moda Scrap Bag from somewhere.
It was perfect for this rosette.
I spent quite a bit of sewing time this week joining my rosettes.
I cannot begin to say how excited I am with this.
Once I add rosette 9 and join rosettes 5 and 2,
I'll have a better idea for color balance in the bottom of the quilt.
This has been such a fun, fun project.
Sometimes I have to earn Good Wife points.
Mending is at the bottom of the fun list but
some things have to be done.
To replace this rain-wear is expensive.
The elastic suspenders have stretched out beyond their usefulness.
The last time he wore them,
I had to pin the elastic up.
So I bought a pair of suspenders for the good elastic
and replaced them.
I should get extra Good Wife points for this.
The suspenders were wider than the elastic on the pants
and I needed to use the buckle.
So I fought with it and won.
Function or fashion.
See what others are working on this week at Patchwork Times.
