Handwork in the only kind of sewing I've been up to lately. I got the first two diamonds done on the way to our first layover in New York on the way to Paris. Two more then completed on the long flight to Paris, though it was overnight and I tried to sleep most of the way.
A bit more sewing happened on the train from Paris to Barcelona. Rather more than I had planned actually as there were a few delays. They gave us a nice box lunch though, and we all got a bit of a nap on the trip.
I'm all packed up again now, and still had plenty of hexies prepped. I'll just remove the finished diamonds and be off again. This week I am grading AP essays in Kansas City. I think the flight is not quite 3 hours, so there will be time for a few more hexies today for sure.
I'm going to link up with Kathy today for Slow Stitching Sunday. Its been a while since I checked in, so it will be nice to see what progress everyone has made.
So apparently something went terribly wrong with the blog post while I was away. I had of course scheduled everything before leaving for Paris and Barcelona, knowing that once I was away it would be hopeless to try to keep up. I came back sick and had to work all week, so its been quite mad dash. Tomorrow I am off to Kansas City to read AP essays. After that, the rest of the summer should be smooth sailing.
Now it is a new month, with a new color. How did June sneak in there? June colors are aqua and turquoise, did I mention that earlier? The block this month is called Country Lanes. Fortunately I had worked ahead on the blocks or I would have been really scrambling.
