Cranky Thursday

Everyone in our house was cranky last night, including me.  I am blaming the extreme heat--100 degree temps and 100+ heat index.

So I made myself an adult beverage and set to some mindless ironing, which of course made me hot and sweaty but did give me a sense of accomplishment.

Then I worked on my Star Struck quilt (a Bonnie K. Hunter design) which I am making largely out of my 2 1/2" strip bin, with some stash fabrics thrown in to make up the difference.

I'm using a variety of light fabrics and all the warm-color strips I could pull out of the bin for the darks.  It's shaping up very nicely, and I have gotten to the step of adding the light triangle, using the stitch and flip method.

Bonnie recommends that you stitch again about 3/8" away from the first stitching, to give little "bonus" half-square triangles, so of course I did that!

I have a nice little pile of quilt units started, plus a little stack of half-square triangles.  But once again, bed was calling so I called it a night, tired but a lot less cranky than when I started.  Quilting can do that for a girl.
