Just a little progress

The rest of our kids left on Sunday so I had some time to sit down and get some sewing done.

We did have a wonderful time having our grandkids visit us here at the cabin and feel very blessed to have been able to enjoy them.

I have been participating in a small challenge  with some friends and I was able to put on the first border yesterday!

my next attachment will be a darker border (brown, I think) before I add on the next real border...we are using both flying geese and half square triangles.  I am thinking I may do the flying geese last to pick up the theme from the center.  I saw a really cute pattern for using hsts on the Mood Blockheads 3 project, which I think I may adopt.

I also got some more placements done (although now that the company is gone, I don't really need to make more... I may incorporate them into a different project.

I haven't sewn them together yet so I'm open to a different project suggestion, if you have one.  These are quick blocks and kind of fun to sew.

I'm heading to the Bay Area today to pick up our mail and take care of some things back in California.  I did make a big mistake, though:  I intended to get up at 6:00 am but I misread my alarm clock and was out of bed at 5:00!  When I realized it, I was already dressed!  I think I may need a nap later!

I'm hoping to get some sewing done so will share my progress!

More log cabins

We have been having our kids and grandkids visiting us at the cabin for the past 3 weeks so I haven't been able to get very much sewing done.  That's a good thing.

Before they arrived, I did whip up some more new placemats while on my log cabin binge!

I had fun picking the centers as well as the fabric for the strips.

I started 3 more but didn't get very far.

Everyone will be leaving Sunday so my life will go back to normal at the cabin here in very HOT Central Oregon.  Our house will be quiet and a bit empty.  But they of course go back to their real lives~!

Here are 4 of the 5 kids!

On a sad note, my mom's memory care facility unfortunately had a case of Covid 19 from one of the employees, which in turn spread to over 30 residents, including my mom, who tested positive but is asymptomatic.  We are keeping our fingers crossed and hope that all the residents will recover.  Thank you for your good wishes!!
