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!
