Life in Between
There was a lot going on last week and I feel like I have left a few things dangling on the blog. It's time to catch up.
The Class on Thursday with Yvonne Fuchs/Quilting Jetgirl was a half-day workshop focusing mostly on value (light/medium/dark) and fabric selection.
Even with all my cutting done before the class, I didn't accomplish very much. The pattern, Wayward Transparency, is not difficult -- just half-square triangles, squares, and rectangles -- but the block assembly requires a lot of attention to position and I managed to get several HSTs turned the wrong way. I'm sure that's never happened to you (wink-wink).

The Ankle is not totally out of confinement yet.
The New House. Mr. Hillside and I continue to split our time between House 1 (current permanent address) and House 2 (future permanent home, a/k/a the lake house or house at the Glade). I realize I'm not always clear where I am when I post here on the blog and I apologize. Soon after I'm released from the doctor, we will make the new house our permanent abode. Or as permanent as it can be with limited furnishings ...
Each time we make the 2-hour drive to House 2 we bring a van load of stuff from House 1 in an attempt to declutter it enough to put it on the market. So far we have moved 90% of our studios and about half the kitchen. Even with the best planning it seems there is always something we want or need at "the other house"!
We drove up Friday afternoon in order to avoid the severe storms that were predicted to come across the state on Saturday. Nashville was spared, but Son-2's family in Arkansas was right in the path of the storm so it was a tense night. I hope my readers were spared from all the wild weather on Friday and Saturday.
On Saturday DH unloaded the van before the storms rolled into East TN and then he treated me to a birthday dinner at one of the Glade's two community club restaurants. On Sunday Son-1 and wife took us to lunch at the other club restaurant. They had spent the weekend visiting several state parks in East TN.
DH and I spent much of Sunday assembling a rolling kitchen island.
The weather. What's up with this?

Are you as ready for Spring as I am?
