By day I work at the sewing machine, by night I sit down and bond with all of my yo-yo's and the television. Zinnie is at my feet and Mr. Joe is in his recliner by my side while we listen to the wind howl outside and hear various sizes of branches land on the roof. There was so much wind, the cabin looks like it has a thatched roof. Time for the gutters to be cleaned out.....again.
It doesn't take long to make 10 or 20 yo-yo's. But it takes me one full episode of Person of Interest or Survivor to applique around the yo-yo's to finish one block.
Just twelve more blocks to go and the borders and hour-glass units will be sewn on. Looking at the picture shows me details I hadn't noticed before. One of the blue centers just jumps right out. I'll start sewing these together into groups of four, and then start putting the blocks into a pleasing arrangement. This pattern is from Kim Diehl's newest book called Simple Graces. The name of the quilt is called Welcome Wagon Yo-Yo. I have to get this one finished so I can put it on the teaching schedule at the shop.
Today will be a combination of raking and working on my baskets for Buttonwood. I'll post progress on that quilt tomorrow.....if I don't rake too much today!
