Years, and years, and years ago - I participated in an internet fabric swap so I could accumulate a large variety of novelty prints appropriate for making an I Spy quilt. Now that I'm a grandma, I decided it was time to get started on this fun project. I received 4" squares in the swap, and yesterday I started cutting them into hexagons using my acrylic template - centering the motif of each piece. I chose a cheerful yellow fabric to use for the setting triangles. Today I got the first bit of sewing done and it's been so fun to see all the different pictures! It's really quite amazing how many different things there are. Everything from flowers, bugs, animals and people to cars, space ships, trains and holidays. FUN! I plan on making it lap sized and I'll keep here at my house so that when the grandkids come for a visit we can pull it out, lay it down on the floor and see what we can find.
Today was the semi-annual surplus book sale at my local library, so I stopped by first thing and stocked up on books on tape - I like to listen to them while I'm hooking and sewing. The price for these is 25 cents each, so I got ALL of these for a mere $5.50! That's pretty cheap entertainment! It'll take me months to get through all of them! I just hope I like them all - it was really, really crowded and I didn't read the synopsis of every single one that I purchased.
