yes, it's Friday Night Sew In again! i'll be putting borders on my orca bay...yes, i got all the rows done! that was my goal for the weekend and it looks like i'll be able to meet it. that means i'll be able to work on something else with a clear conscience, knowing that orca bay is a flimsy, whew!
bonnie in order to alert quilters to be on the lookout. i am hoping it was not stolen, just lost...it saddens me when people abscond with handwork items. **** and what am i up to this friday? orca bay of course. i'm also working on a small challenge piece using jo morton's 'variety' line. i also spent a bit of time playing around with my civil war fabrics. **** first thing this morning hit joann's fabrics to get a few quilty necessities at 50% off PLUS an additional 10% with the coupon. now back to the regularly scheduled project!

cherrywood hand dyes. not sure what color thread i'll use yet. the first border is navy blue and it may be the only border, not sure yet. if so, i might use navy blue to quilt the whole thing. the solid drawer was full so had to use some up. this is a portable project with no set finish date. there are a total of 202 whole hexies and 12 half hexies. so if you see me on my next train trip, i'll be working on these. **** today i finished pinning the triangles/corners for the feathered star and attached another row on orca bay. and, today i was surfing blogs and saw a perfect quilt for all my repros, but something tells me i'm going to need at least a few patterns to make a dent in my newly-enhanced civil war stash.
