Actually there's very little tacking in the Craftsy Block of the Month Quilt. The only tacking thus far has been the paper pieced hexagons and I am in secondary love with them. I am in primary love with the Greek Cross. Admittedly I made the executive decision that we wouldn't do the half triangle corners, but still, it's quick and wonderful. The Octagon was almost as quick and cute and then MrsDrWho and I sewed our respective hexagons to a block. So we made three blocks today!!!
We also 'fixed' two blocks. How wide is a scant?? It's a bit vague for me and so some seams weren't a scant enough quarter of an inch. Neither were MrsDrWho's. We added a border to our respective squares.
We have seven completed squares each, I have my strip of hexagons ready to sew on and we plan to make two more squares, which need no measuring at all, later this week. Eight out of ten is not a bad total for the year.
I've also completed some more Secret Knitting. If you click here (and MrsDrWho please do not) you can see what I made!!
Peri and Lorelai Gilmore have really been enjoying the Winter Sun.
In the mornings it is very cold and there is so much ice on the car that I have to tip two or three litres of warm water over the windows. The Labradors love the frosty grass at the dam and when we get home Gilly has a dip in the paddle pool. Then she likes to stalk imaginary things. I'm not sure what she's looking for, but it's a big job and takes a long time.
MrsDrWho and I are watching Sherlock. I bought the DVD set so we are not subjected to advertisements on TV. It's pretty fabulous. Often, we guess whodunnit and/or why!!
Tomorrow it's Leukaemia Support Group and a doctor's appointment. I'm not planning on doing anything else, just walking Peri and Gilly.
