This one (below) is not a kid -- he is the great grandfather! totally engaged in a game of rubber band shooting. I was waiting for "someone" to land on the floor, but nothing critical happened, except that all my rubber bands are gone. There is a 10 yr. old out of sight in this photo!
OK, now for more "great stuff", here is the beginning of the layout I chose for my latest 300 or so blocks of split 9-patches. This is an entire "method" from Jackie Robinson, "Strip and Slash". I've made it 3 times previously. These blocks are small, about 3.75 inches.
and .... I have become addicted, as previously posted. I think I have 30 rosette blocks so far. Again, I have to say, these are not as hard as we have been led to believe. I invested in a paper punch for perfect paper forms, which made the job so much easier and precise. These hexagons finish at 1 inch (length of each of the 6 sides). I stuck with a lot of pinks and blues. Since I am sitting waaay more than I used to, trying to watch/find something decent on TV, I am using my time for something useful.
OK, one more thing. I've had to change browsers from IE to Firefox for posting on this blog. For some reason, I couldn't "sign out" from my Gmail account to access my Yahoo account which is what I use for Blogger -- just another one of those mysteries. Thank you to several of you who made that suggestion.
Today, off to Walmart for a Wi-Fi printer. Oh dear, another mystery that requires courage!
