So I decided that I finally needed to get started on finishing up Roll Roll Cotton Boll. I think I'll call this version Rolling Right Along. I had to make a few changes due to general distract-ability during the extended construction process. First I put the churn dash blocks together with a different color arrangement because I thought I remembered the directions that way. Once I got started that way I decided I liked it enough to keep in inside out. Then when I put the string blocks together I got carried away and turned them all into squares instead of keeping some out for the setting triangles. So I cut those apart and added another strip of fabric to the edges to stabilize the bias and make sure the triangles were big enough. I think it gives it a border like feel. I did finally find the pieces for the real border, though I don't think I'll work on that right away. If I can get the blocks sewn together I will hang it all up and have it ready to go next time I am in a border mood.
Most of the kids ended up having sleepovers last night though Kurt and I had already arranged for a babysitter. I had to call and cancel when two of the three were gone for the night. This morning the girls went to the beach while Ryan was fishing with a friend. They have the day off school tomorrow while I'm off at in-service meetings. This afternoon I went out and got a haircut and some highlights, other than that I've had a nice quiet weekend of puttering around the house. I guess it is time to get some lesson plans and grading done so that I am ready for the week when it starts on Tuesday.
