We enjoyed a great long weekend, taking in a football game in Ottawa, catching up on long overdue sleep and reading, sipping cold drinks on the deck, and generally having a wonderful time. Not much sewing included in that list but I did resolve to finally finish cutting up all the strips that I had prepared for Minnie into hexies. Easier said than done.
I continually underestimated how many strips that I had, but took a stab at it. Good progress was made Friday night but at least half of the strips remained.
Fresh fruit is in season now so Sunday I decided to whip up my much-loved Crostada (I'm sure you're sick of hearing just how much I love this dessert - thank you Ina Garten). Mmmmm, mmmmmm, mmmmmm.
Not sure if it was the sugar boost from dessert or just having time on my side, but I finally conquered those strips, and have a lovely little pile of hexies cut and ready to sew. It doesn't look like much but there are lots here. I know I'll need more as I get into the larger rounds but will cut those as I need them so that the strips don't start getting all ratty. Finally!....M
