Here is half of the Triangle top. I’m determined to finish it before switching to or starting another project. I’ve been very tempted to make some basket blocks, but I’m resisting. They can wait. I already have most of the hst made for the rest of the quilt so I’m hoping to have it done by the end of next week. I like to set target dates, but I’m very flexible about meeting them!
I’m pressing the seams open and have been doing this for the past year or two. Do you ever do this? I remember they used to say to press toward the dark fabric. Has that been ignored for a while and I’m just catching on? I like the way my blocks look when the seams are pressed open – they lay flatter and go together much easier.
I’m looking forward to the last Harry Potter movie. I’m not one to see it right away – will wait until the crowds thin out a bit. I just love these books and movies – read and watched them all more than once. I think J.K. Rowling was just so creative with this series; especially with her characters – love their names! I can’t wait to see Mrs. Weasley get her revenge! One of my favorite lines is toward the end when Dumbledore says to Harry “Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?” This won’t make sense to you if you haven’t read the books, but it is so Dumbledore!
Can you believe it is already mid-July? My daughter has been in Japan for over a month – she returns early in August and will have just a few days at home before returning to school. Last week we Skyped with her and her host family. She had to translate and it was neat to hear her speak Japanese. She has been studying the language for 8 years.
