I ended up buying two yards of a fabric that should work.  I've got my fingers crossed anyway.  i didn't do anything on the top because I just couldn't get into it.

Well it is Monday.  The day to work on this.  I think I've got it figured out as far as what has to come off.  First I'll make sure that all the hexagons that have to come off are still basted so I dont have the epp templates coming adrift.  Then I'll carefully begin the process of frogging all of the border hexagons.  I'm glad they have coffee at this meeting.

I was going to make a mandarin orange and almond salad for today's potluck but I'll buy some egg salad at walmart.  I just can't get going today.  I need to be one the road by 8:00a.m. and I'm still in my bathrobe.  Some boot me in the you-know-where and get me going.

I had a "v-8" moment.  i can frog the top and bottom and make the outside an inside row.  That way I only have to frog a few.

I'm going to have to make templates for all the former interior hexagons because of course i had already pulled those and reused them.  But I'll get there.

Well I dug them out of the bag since I needed the small scissors that were in there and now they are over by the iron where they need to be.  I wouldn't get so far behind if I wasn't doing more than one thing at a time.

I got them ironed flat and all gathered up in one place.  And today I got the flower I was working on completely sewn onto the top.  Now I just have to add one more pathway hexie to it and it is done and I can go on to the next one.  Polly told the fire story about this type of quilt.  But i don't think there is a way to make a quilt and not mourn it if something happens to it.

Don't ask me how but black ended up against black.  I'll look at it later.

Well I looked at it but it appears right even though it is black against black.  I have no idea how it happened but I'm going to continue to soldier on with it.  So now it's in it's bag with thread, scissors, needles, and a thimble.

I took it to applique and started flower number 10 on it.  I thought I was farther along but then don't I always.

I ironed all of the templates that I took out of the quilt top.  Now it is time to cut again but I can't until I pin charity quilt 14 60's Circles.  And I won't do that until I fix the problems with 15 Tropical Seascapes.  Arrrrrgh.
