I just returned home yesterday afternoon from a short trip to a state park. Five of my husband's seven siblings and spouses rented a cabin rented a cabin in the woods and a good time was had by all although I think some folks (mostly women but not me) were disappointed that internet connectivity was almost nil and they became rather anxious. I think it's nice to get away for a bit but I am always glad to be back home. Groups of people make me anxious and I'm not much of a socializer.
Today I finished up the rest of my Path and Stiles blocks. I now have 100 of these nine inch finished blocks.
It's Nine Patch November at my house. I chose to try to reduce both my inventory of six and three inch Nine Patches. I swapped three inch Nine Patches quarterly for a number of years and although I've made a lot of quits that use them I still have a bin of them. I used some of those Nine Patches as the centers of these blocks.
I went through my chunk scraps and tried to match up my scraps to the Nine Patch centers. I actually had a lot of fun doing that.
Now my three inch Nine Patch inventory is 100 Nine Patches lighter.
After I finishing ironing the remainder of the blocks they will all go into the Some Assembly Required box where complete blocks sets rest until I feel like assembling a top.
Now I have a little stack of 3.5 inch width pieces to deal with and my Shoe Box project box will be ready for another project.
