I got a late start for Day 2. With it getting daylight after 7 a.m., that puts me so late getting things done. I don’t want to shower or work in the kitchen til after I deal with the chickens.
The pattern I posted yesterday did not include the size for the flying geese, I have added that info. I had to change the link so the new link is in yesterday’s post. But, they are 2′ x 4″ finished or 2-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ unfinished. Thank you folks for pointing that out.
Like yesterday, I will update this post with my accomplishments for the day. Instead of trying to get all the flying geese done, like I had hoped to do, I’m going to make 40 more today and then sew together a few blocks. That breaks up the monotony of sewing the flying geese a bit, though I love to make all the components before sewing blocks. Yesterday I was about to give up before I saw how pretty the block is and how quickly it goes together.
8:50 a.m. – The sewing begins for me!
Noon – 48 Flying Geese are made. Lunch break!
4:30 p.m. – Long lunch break, huh? I put up 13 quarts of spiced apple rings. Now I hope to sew for an hour or so before time to finish up dinner.
8:00 p.m. – Day 2 has ended for me.
I had hoped to get one yellow block done but I didn’t get that far. I got all 6 of the red/yellow nine patches done and I got 56 more flying geese done. I’ll be back at the sewing room as soon as I can in the morning.
