... from taking a break
It was refreshing to have my son and daughter-in-law bring a picnic lunch today to celebrate birthdays for both me and my sister-in-law.
|Son-1, SIL, DH, and Me!
The Queen Mother continues to hang on by a thread. I have not been able to even sew an accurate quarter-inch seam in the last two weeks. But today I was inspired by Jo Kramer at Jo's Country Junction to break out what I have finished on this year's Bonnie Hunter mystery, En Provence, and see if I can make something with the bits I have done.
My first attempt was to simply put the nine stars with the yellow corners together. It wasn't big enough, even though my blocks are bigger than Bonnie's (because I didn't read the directions on the first clue), and it left all the other units I had made needing a home somewhere.
So I decided to use some of them in a sashing. First in a straight set ...
... and in an on-point setting ...
I think I'm favoring the on-point. What do you think? I'll come up with some creative way to use all the neutral 4Ps and purple 4Ps in the corners. But I won't sew a stitch until life returns to normal here on the hill.
Thanks to all who have expressed concern and offered prayers.
