And on the sewing/quilting front, here is my latest project, a version of Jamestown Landing from Quiltville.com, Bonnie Hunter. Instead of the string blocks, I used large HSTs. I counted the pieces, without border, and it's 2300. I'm still sewing the last parts, the last HSTs that replace the string units. NONE of the units are together yet, unfortunately. There are 30 stars in all. My Design Floor isn't large enough to have all of them laid out. Note that half the stars are "dark" (dark corners and centers) and half are "light" (light corners and centers). Sewing them is not a big deal - just have to pay attention. ALL the small HSTs units are the same. I purchased the dark blue fabric for the large HSTs. Other parts are all scrappy from stash. You'd think a person would run out eventually, wouldn't you?
On a separate note, several weeks ago, a message popped up on Google indicating G would no longer support Bloggers, or was it Readers or ???, as of a particular date. Has anyone else seen that message and/or knows what that meant?
