Making some stars

Trimming Ohio Stars

In the morning light, I trimmed.

The quarter square triangle units just glow. Oakshott Lipari shot cottons with Essex linen in light grey.

So shiny.

One more picture while the sun was up.

Later I finished sewing. These Ohio stars finish at 3" square.

I need more green ones, but it is late now. I will put them in the sun in the morning and take more pictures. And make more green ones, and then make them into something nice.

I worked hard this week and the lurgy is lurking again so I am taking it easy in the hopes of fighting it off. There were naps and healthy food in between star making. And tea.

I hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Best,

Leanne
