FYI Monday - What I am Doing

Today is a cold, windy, nasty day.  I keep thinking that the wind is going to blow the shingles off my roof. The temperature is dropping quickly and I have to have all of my lights on in the house in order to see anything.  Hope my pics will show up okay.

It is also the first day of Sew Sister's Blogathon Canada, 2013.  Just click on the image on my sidebar or click here, and it will take you to some wonderful quilt-related stuff  Today the west coast is featured.  There will be a different part of Canada each day this week.   Also, there are lots of things to win on the Sew Sister's site.  So go and have a look.  My blog will be featured on one of the Ontario blogs, next Saturday.

Several months ago I tried to keep up with Terry when she did her Pennsylvania quilt.  But I got so far behind that I just put it away.  I found it a few days ago and decided it needed to be finished.  So here is what I have done so far.  I just want to put a border of the light fabric all around these blocks.  Then it will be a flimsy and I will be happy with that for now.

In the evenings I have been working on my hexies.  I am trying to do at least 10 of the dark blue ones per night.  That is the goal I have set for myself  anyway.  I have 360 hexies still to do.  That still means a lot of evenings, but without a goal they may never get done.

Have you heard?  Bonnie Hunter is hosting another mystery quilt, starting at the end of the month.  It is called, 'Celtic Solstice'.  I would love to make it, but I still have 'Easy Street' and 'Orca Bay' to finish.  So that is my goal for this week - to finish at least one of them.  Now going to try to find them.  Usually when I clean up I put things in such good places that I never find them again.  Do you do that too?  Or is it only me?

Oops, change of plans.  My DD just dropped in for lunch.  She only has about 50 minutes, so I'd better hurry and make some chicken salad sandwiches for the two of us.

How exciting for you Hetty. I will try to go have a nosy on these blogs. Lobe your flimsy. It also rained here in Florida all day today. Not so windy though, just wet.

Keep on plugging away at them and the hexies will get done sooner than you think. Looking good!
