We had our mail sent out from our park in Nevada Monday and it arrived Friday. Not bad for priority mail. Ha Ha! The good news is there were two quilting magazines in the package for me and one RV magazine for my husband.
I've been working away on the pattern testing I'm doing and have 21 rows finished and 4 rows joined together. It may not look like the pile has changed any, but it is getting bigger.
Each day I've basted some hexies and the pile continues to grow. Right now I have 131 of the white print finished. Here is what that many look like.
Yesterday I took a break and started a new project (everyone needs to add another project to their WIP list) that I've been wanting to do since I received an email about it. It's called the Repeat QAL and it is from Patty over at Elm Street Quilts. Click here for the information about this QAL. Here is Patty's picture of it which will be 30" x 30" when finished.
As usual, I'm a bit behind on this as the instructions for the first letter, "e", came out on the 13th of June and I just started mine today and only have two of the five "e's" needed done. The letters are made using foundation paper piecing which I enjoy doing and is a nice break from sewing all those 1 1/2 inch squares together.
One of the best parts of this week, besides quilting, has been going down to the ocean which we did yesterday. It was still a bit cool out and breezy, but so nice to smell the salt air and hear the seals barking and popping their heads out of the water. It sure is hard to get a picture of them.
That black dot to the right of hubby's chest is a seal
Not sure what kind of seal this one is
I had hoped to get this posted at 6 AM this morning, but my computer decided it needed to update and since upgrading to Windows 10 it no longer gives me an option to delay updates. Don't you just love this message when it was completing the updates? Maybe I didn't want new features.
Please be sure to check for my post on Monday as it's the second week of the 2016 New Quilt Bloggers Hop which is my week to post. It tells more about me and my quilting in an RV which lots of pictures.
I'm linking up with Slow Sunday Stitching
