Three things to be happy about:
(1) blowing bubbles
(2) sea-glass jewelry
(3) kind words
Has anyone else had problems lately with posting? Last week everything was okay, then sometime around the middle of last week I couldn't type at all in the "Compose" mode, only in HTML. Every now and then I'd get messages from different sites that my version of IE was outdated, but when I checked the Microsoft site it showed I have the latest version for my operating system (Windows XP). I checked the Blogger FAQ site then I switched to Google Chrome and it works okay, but I prefer IE, I'm used to it! You'll notice this is not one of my happy things today!
One more thing I like about using OPS (other people's scraps) is that when I look at the blocks I see scraps that I won't find in my own stash, maybe I'll have only one or two pieces of that particular scrap in the entire project!
I'm thinking about layout possibilities now. I could sash the blocks and set them 7 across and 8 down with borders, which would give me a decent sized quilt... Or I could set them on point with or without sashing and borders.... Or I could alternate them with a less-busy block... lots of possibilities are out there!
I have a feeling I can't go wrong with these blocks.
The DC government is participating in EPA's RiverSmart Homes program, that offers up to $1200 to help homeowners reduce storm water runoff from their property. Yesterday the auditor came by to survey my yard but unfortunately I didn't meet the size and layout requirements. I am eligible for a rain barrel and pervious paving, but since I'm mainly interested in landscaping plants I won't be able to participate. phooey! I would have been a good deal, though; two of my neighbors had it done, the contractors do all the digging up and replanting.
Well that's it for today, enjoy your Tuesday, sew forth and sew on til later...
