Three things to be happy about:
(1) the giant HOLLYWOOD sign
(2) the ripple effect of kindness
(3) impressionist paintings
Yesterday while I was waiting in the dentist's office a sweet little lady came in and was looking around at the abstract paintings on the walls as she was waiting her turn at the counter. I had to smile when she approached a 5 or 6 year old who'd just come from his appointment (his mom was at the counter) and asked him "do you like the paintings?" He looked at her with a curious expression, then looked at the paintings and said "what paintings?"
Little kids are like a boxa choklits - you never know what you're gonna ge-yet.
I've slowed down a bit on sewing the En Provence mystery units, a lot of other stuff is popping into first place.
But I'm back working on it - here come the flags!
I was telling Gayle of Mangofeet that the skinny little tip on those QST units keep wanting to wiggle even though I hold onto them til the end - ouch!
My solution? A smidge of Elmer's glue at the very tip - a little dab'll do ya!
Potato / po-tah-to
Whatever it takes, eh?
All I know is - it works for me!
So here are the units done so far ...
Six completed, plus enough flags pieced to make eleven more.
Thank goodness it's not a race! I finished the 2015 mystery in February 2016, I talked about it in this post.
So I'm confident I can finish this one within two more months or so.
I also have another flag to fly - see that pretty neutral on top?
Leaving the dentist yesterday I remembered there was a little variety store close by that sold fabric. I popped in to check for a few more neutrals, and I got lucky!
Not only had their fabric quality gone up, but their Christmas fabric was 50% off. I got a total of 10 quarter-yard cuts; when she was toting up the price for the Christmas fabric she said "oh heck, I want to get rid of this!" I had 7 sale pieces, she charged me $4 for the bunch!
Wave a flag today, you can find one someplace; sew forth and sew on...
