I have been enjoying the Netflix membership that my son got me for my birthday. I watched Veronica Mars seasons. I am on the last season now. It was a really good show. I got a couple of discs of "Northern Exposure" a show that was on quite a while ago. It was quirky. If I could watch it instantly instead of having a DVD I would watch the rest of the seasons. I realized that I can access netflix on my TV and on my phone. At least I know that I will never be bored if I have to wait anywhere.
I finished "Mockingjay" in a couple of days and gave the 3 books to my daughter to read. I downloaded some digital books to listen to. It is so much easier for me to get books in that way. I have been trying to get through a book called "The Passage". It is my bedtime read. I usually get to tired to get past a few pages. So now that I have it downloaded, I will be able to "read" it and still get other things finished.
Today is a nice sunny moderate day. It has been a relaxing few days off. I didn't have a lot of activities planned. But I have actually got some quilting in. One of my co-workers was just diagnosed with breast cancer, so I am making a quilt. Unfortunately pink is her favorite color so I had to go out and buy some because it is the one color that I don't have in my stash.
I started with a bunch of fat quarters and I cut 2.5 inch strips.
It is a pretty simple straightforward design. Light/Dark 4 patch as a center block
Unfinished at 4.5 inches .
Each 4 patch is bordered by 2.5 in strips of the contrasting color
Two 2.5 x 4.5
Two 2.5 x 8.5
The block is 8" finished. I am going to make 20 of each.
I will have to go and get more fabric to finish it up (borders, binding,back)
Just haven't been in the quiltmaking mood lately. Maybe now that the weather is finally getting cool again, I will sit down and get to it.
Happy quilting!! teri
