bonnie's gorgeous red/green project or anyone else's for that matter. my chubby fingers do not lend themselves comfortably to working with such small pieces and i do find them, well, a bit boring. regardless, it's a great portable project for the beach (today!) and at least i can say i tried them. **** aside from hexies, work is progressing on the last 2 blocks for JT2 first section, the amish ocean waves flimsy and the leaders/enders.

the last tax refund purchase arrived yesterday. clever hancock's, sent me a catalog and shortly thereafter a free shipping missive arrived at my inbox. there was much more on my "want" list, but i opted out of all but these. i have a wallhanging pattern that has been waiting on them, so now it can be started. **** most of my tax refund went to paying for my vacation, some bills and a couple of needed things (suitcase, stainless flatware) and this gorgeous fabric. each piece is 1/2 yard, so 3.5 new yards into the stash. my last christmas-y purchase was last year so i've really tapered off. autumn and christmas fabrics always call to me but of late i have mostly ignored the message. it's now washed and dried and ready to use. yeah, i'm in the "wash fabric" group.
