it was an ALL ME day.
I pushed the little bit of schoolwork that still remained aside; I'll be certain to drink an extra dose of strong caffeinated coffee tomorrow morning and plow through the last of my work prior to having students tomorrow. I figured 8 hours this weekend devoted to schoolwork was already enough! I needed a break.
Downstairs I went by 8:15, with my coffee in hand. I plopped "The Phantom of the Opera" in the DVD player....and SUNG -n- SUNG -n- SUNG while stringin' -n- stringin' -n- stringin' away. Screeched at a few of the high notes; whew...my voice is out of singing shape. And boy, oh boy....I'm glad there are NO microphones or recording devices in my quilting space. :p
However, with about 10 hours behind me now (with a few hours scattered here-n-there for meals and stoking the wood furnace), I ALMOST caught myself up on Bonnie's mystery.
I had finished my step #2 orange string blocks yesterday. I spent 95% of my time today working AND FINISHING step #4's green (Bonnie's Red) string blocks.
The only step I have not completed yet is step #3; however I grabbed the fabrics today to prep the HSTs for another day.
ALMOST all 350 HSTs are prepped; I have 280 ready to go. These shouldn't take much time to whip out now that they're stacked so nicely.
My colors will no longer fit Bonnie's "Orca Bay" theme (if my hunches are correct with her color uses), BUT....I simply love the color selection I chose; I can't see why they won't fit together nicely in whatever final pattern Bonnie's mystery leads us to.
