While stitching on this and other projects I listened to an audio book - Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. Whoo-whee. One third of the way through I thought the characters were annoying and insipid. Halfway through things got VERY interesting. All I will say is that if you are looking for a feel-good holiday read - don't go near this, but if you want a devious thriller - jump right in.
Bill and I are packing for a short trip for a hockey tournament. We are looking forward to it as we had another little hockey event planned that is now been cancelled. The Winter Classic was to be played right here in Ann Arbor on New Years Day, but a little disagreement between millionaires and bigger millionaires put a kibosh on that. Boo.
I added another border or two to Mrs. Billings Coverlet. The next border involves hexagons. While I was at Happiness is Quilting in McKinney Texas last month, Wendy showed me her paper piecing project. And she showed me this........
The Sewline glue pen. Yep, Wendy just marked the glue pen on all 6 edges of her hexies - and folded back the fabric. DONE! This will be my "car project" on the way to the hockey tournament: glue basting hexagons instead of stitch basting. I expect I can get all the needed hexagons basted in one 4 hour car ride.
Once back from the tournament - I unpack, do a load of laundry, repack and head to the airport. Polly and I have a little trip planned to do some business, have meals with friends, and maybe take in a few holiday sights.
