The family who lives in Northern Israel left the day after the holiday and the one who lives in Miami Beach is leaving this coming Sunday. Gradually, the others have returned to school and I'm slowly trying to catch up with things.
When I'm all alone, next week, the first thing I plan to do is block the Shetland Pi shawl! Can't wait to see how it comes out.
I also managed to sew up some batik nine patch blocks for a swap and mail them out. I love batiks and look forward to seeing the variety that I get back. They're nine inch finished size.
I also received my winnings in a giveaway of some batik fabric charms from Marjorie of the Applique Addict blog.
I'm thinking of making some smaller nine patch blocks using some of those and some from my stash and then setting them together sort of like Wanda is doing here on her Exuberant Color blog. But, maybe with a less busy background.
Right now, I've got to get back to some paperwork that I'm behind with.
