This is Tennessee! And you can't really rely on accurate weather forecasts. Around 7pm last night, we lost power. ARGH! With that, we also lost all access to cable! Double ARGH! I am totally lost with out those comforts, shoot I can't watch TV, let alone sew on bindings!
My kids were sweet enough to load the laptop with Pirates of the Caribbean movie, so you know, Johnny Depp helped me through!
I have two 18" x 18" pillows in the works using 1" hexies. For some reason hexies and polka dots are my favorite combination!
There are also two 18" x 18" pillows in 2 1/2" hexies. I've made pillows with this size before, Cheerful Spring and was excited to do it again! Here's a link to a fabulous tutorial at Modern Handcraft ~ Modern Hexagon Tutorial. You will love making these!
I used my favorite tool the ever popular Hera Marker to mark some lines for machine quilting.
As for the storm and power, we got the power back on at 10 pm. Still no cable, no Internet, no sense staying up!
I finally went to bed after the movie only to be jolted a few times by the loud crack of lightning! Really LOUD! Turns out one street over a bolt hit a huge oak tree and that sucker went down!
The cable finally, finally have I said finally (?) came on at 2:15 pm today! Now it must be time to get back to work and get these pillow finished!
