- Spring forward----I loose an hour of sleep.
- It messes up my body clock and takes a full week to recover.
- Sir Old Man teases me and messes with my head over this. This year he quietly moved the automatic timers settings this past week just to confuse me. He thought I would not notice....ha!
- The only good thing is it's a reminder to me to change my rotary blades!
So of course, I need to include a circle to commemorate this dastardly event. Day/night or night/day.....take your pick! I stole this idea from Mary at Hill Country Quilter. I joined two background squares and cut them to size. Then I cut the circle from the pieced scraps. Thanks, Mary, for this idea!
I finished up my Let's Book It project, but will save that for a full post later this month. I will share a peek at it because I tried a new to me FMQ motif. It's the first row you see on the left. The motif is called Fern Twist and a video tutorial is here.
I practiced on paper to get the muscle memory thing down before I tried it here. The three spikey parts are easy, but I had to concentrate to be sure to have each unit reversed. I did take her advise about spacing. I marked a line with chalk for each unit.....a palm's width for each one in this case.
It's a great stitch....not too dense, and would be a good one for borders. So I will add it to my motif library journal.
I have 60+ bow ties done....enough to begin design play. It is Spring break visit time, along with a full schedule of appointments for next week. My time in the sewing room will be limited......minus that hour we will lose tonight!!
Happy stitching anyway:)
