Half Square Triangles
208 half square triangles are need for the project--Autumn Leaves, by Bonnie Sullivan--that I am working on. A slow and tedious process, but fits my speed these days! I do a few, take a break and come back to it later, so the picture shows what my kitchen table looks like. It was a kit, purchased in Bend, Oregon, several years ago during our annual trip to Sisters outdoor show. Will post a picture when it is finished.
If you are near Oregon, don't miss the Sisters show this Saturday. Be prepared for heat of 90 degrees or more, including a hat, sunblock and a cooler of refreshments! Unfortunately, I won't be traveling this year.
So what have I been up to since March 2013? First 9 months of a computer conversion of Epic proportions, 12 hour days, 6&7 days a week! My health has continued to decline...several trips to the cath lab and a new stent, still not able to keep up with Cardiac Rehab, just extremely tired. Then in May I fractured my Tibia...2 weeks in the hospital...2 weeks in rehab...8 weeks of no weight bearing-living in a wheelchair. More about that another time.
My son has been great at bringing projects from my studio, machines, tools, etc., since I am limited to the first floor of my house.
Since I am not able to work anymore, I am going to try blogging again. This one is via my IPAD as a trial. Seems a bit clumsy...but going to give it a try a few more times. Trying to figure out lots! Let me know what you think.
