There are still seven blocks to be completed and pressed, but two of those seven have been started. I’m working on these last ones slightly differently in that I’m starting out with groups of shapes that I think will work for each block but am changing things out as I stitch them. The two that are started are pink – lots and lots of pink. The one that is almost finished is being called cotton candy by Mr. Q.O.
The final five will look something like these groupings. The box in which I have all the extra 90-degree hexagons I had printed when I began the POTC blocks is close by, so I can change things out as and when I decide a colour grouping needs some tweaking.
Very little stitching was done around here yesterday as I spent a few hours at the hospital. Baxter had, on Wednesday while he was being brushed and combed, given me a bit of a bite. Not a big deal, or so I thought at the time. I did the normal thing when it happened and put peroxide on and then some polysporin and really didn’t think much more of it. Yesterday afternoon I noticed the finger was swollen and rather red. I called my GP who told me to go to emerg. So off we went. A tetanus shot and a prescription for the most enormous antibiotics I’ve ever seen were the result. The doctors and nurses at the hospital were wonderful and I was in and out of there pretty quickly.
