The Cake Mixes have diagrams for triangle arrangements, but I remembered seeing one online for 72 configurations using only half square triangles! We found it! Here it is! I wish I knew who to credit for the original.
We printed ourselves a copy for our sewing rooms, and Laura tried these arrangements;
I visited my friend, Laura Sheaffer, who lives in the Hendersonville- Brevard region of western North Carolina. We attended the Western North Carolina Quilters Guild show at Bonclarken Conference Center in Flat Rock. At the show, we happened to purchase a couple of pads of quilting papers called, Cake Mixes. We each bought a different pad and went to her house and played!
It has been one year since I posted! I have done quite a bit of crafting this year and need to catch up! Photos coming soon!
It’s just flurries, but after all our warm weather, what a surprise!!!
I bought this image from Graphic Stock. I think it will make beautiful glass gem pendants!
UH, oh. ‘Looks like I left my tiny fluted bead cap off the earring on the left. (‘Sounds like song lyrics!) I think I like it better than the other, so, I’ll just get rid of it on the right one with some snips. That’ll be much easier than taking it apart.
How I love this time of year! I have a trip I dream of for this time of year. Relatives in Florida say the oranges come in, and the azaleas bloom there in February. The trip begins in Florida in February, I follow the flowers up the coast, and wind up here at home in April.
I was in Boone, NC, earlier this week. On the mountainsides, dogwoods and redbuds were blooming. When my flowers are finishing their spring show, I can go 20 miles up the mountain and extend the season! I’ve just expanded my dream trip!
Speaking of which, why not be in Florida when those February fruits are flowering? We stayed in Kissimmee one time in a hotel next to an orange grove. Whatever variety was growing in that grove was in full bloom. I remember thinking, Heaven will smell like this! (and a baby’s head, but that’s another post!) I’ll have to research when the oranges bloom and start my trip then, someday, when the grandkids are bigger and I can bear to stay away from them more than a week. (As long as it’s a dream trip, I believe I’ll just take them with me!)
For now, I’ll just enjoy the here and now:
I’ll end with this photo of baby blueberries since they are a promise of things to come!
