En Provence Week Four

Friday Night Sew In was a complete fail for me. It started off well enough - I actually managed to wrap up working by a little after 4pm and was going to run a couple of quick errands before dinner to free up the evening to sew. And then the freezing rain started. Traffic came to a screeching halt with accidents everywhere and some vehicles unable to navigate even the slightest of hills. Thankfully I had a nearly full tank of gas and was finally able to get home without incident, albeit at nearly 7 pm. By the time dinner was eaten and cleaned up I was too tired to do much of anything. 

I got up early Saturday and started cutting for Step 4 of En Provence. Tri-recs units aren't my favorite to cut - I end up with the little corner confetti all over my sewing room. And while I couldn't spend a lot of time in the sewing room this weekend - I had to get the tree up and some cookies baked - I still managed to complete the step and stay caught up!


This quilt is very purple-y so far!  I can't even imagine how the greens and yellows will factor in. I assume we will see those this week - and we know we are done with tri-recs units, so I'm guessing something with half square triangles?    


Head over to the Mystery Monday Link-up on Bonnie's blog to see the fantastic progress everyone is making on En Provence. Not much sewing time for me this week - I have to get my act together and finish my Christmas shopping (and baking, and wrapping...).  I hope to have everything finished by the time Friday's clue is posted so I can start sewing early - it's a holiday and the beginning of a glorious 11 day break from work!

Holy Toledo!! You baked, got your tree up and still did 80 purple Tri-Rec units. You go girl!! I started on mine, even still had some neutral center triangles left over from Clue 2. Still not done though. Saturday we had company almost all day....love those great grandbabies..but no sewing is done while a 3 yr old is in the house!! :)

I'm glad you made it home safely! Your units are lovely. I'm guessing we're going to see some half square triangles and quarter square triangles in future clues. It will be fun to pull in the rest of the colors.

I wonder if this week will be pinwheels, hourglass units, just regular half-square triangles, or???

You got a lot done! We had ice here and very treacherous roads and parking lots. Great time to stay inside and sew. I hope my grown kids bake while they are here next week.
