Did you know that 3 of the 7 astronauts on the current shuttle mission are Georgia Tech grads? Pretty neat, huh? Vince is a GA Tech grad and he’s feeling all proud about that. He has a Masters from Clemson and Tulane so he has all kinds of things to be proud about.
I really hate that I haven’t been able to show you what I’m working on but please believe that I am sewing — slaving away at my sewing machine.
The last few days have been spent making little nine patches that will finish at 3″. I needed 176 of these little rascals . . that’s 528 of these little 1-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ strips.
Don’t you just hate those brown spots on my cutting mat? I’m fixing to ditch it and pull out a new one. I really am. I think I saw one somewhere the other day.
Next project (or maybe the one after that) needs about 400 half square triangles that finish at 1″, or maybe it’s 1-1/2″. No matter what . . it’s a darned lot of half square triangles but it’s a neat quilt.
And, I’ve been knitting a bit. I’m happy that I have two feet but I surely don’t seem very committed to making matching socks for both feet. Who ever said socks had to match anyway? Darn it . . it would be much prettier to have different colored socks on each foot but people would think I was nuts if I did that, right?
Here are three socks that need mates. I have at least three more. I really need to stop starting another pair before I’ve finished the second sock.
