I pieced a block yesterday, out of the tiny strips trimmed from other blocks. It will come out 2" when trimmed, 1.5" finished when sewn into something. I think I have the beginning of a new project. I will just make bunches of little 2" blocks and toss them in a plastic bin until I have enough to make something.
These are the blocks the trimmings came from. They were several different sizes and all trimmed to 2.5".
While I watched "Numb3rs" last night I sat and wove together the little leftovers from the star quilt from a few weeks ago. This is the mindless playing that keeps me sane.
I got to the hospital at 7:45 a.m. yesterday and by 11:45 a.m. I had Dad situated at the nursing home. Luckily Dad's problem from the night before was gone. The nursing home is very clean and 2 of my quilter friends are employed there. I know they will take good care of Dad.
