Random Notions – Geese a-flyin’!

I had a really nice, easy day.  First I took Mom to get a haircut from my dear friend and hairstylist Linda, and I got a trim while I was there.  Linda is the only hairstylist I have allowed to cut my hair more than once in my life!  I believe I have been going to her since around 2007 – I think?  She is awesome and if you are in Las Vegas and need a haircut, you should go see her!

Then, when I got home, I got to making geese again.  I know, doesn’t it seem like I have been doing them forever?  I’m happy to say that at this point, I only need to make 8 more – here is how I am going to lay them out-


I just need one more square of the size of the one in the middle on the bottom – the littlest ones.  I left them last because the littler they are, the harder they are to put together.  I have new found respect for quilters who only work in miniature!

Once I have that square done – fingers crossed for tomorrow – I will start figuring out how much white I will need to put them together.  I’ve never worked on a piece like this before that is going to have a bunch of odd sized sashes, but I am pretty confident I can figure it out.

Once they are together, I will have to decide if I am brave enough to tackle the thought of making a lot of really little geese for the border.  The smallest I have made so far are the 1” x 2”, but I could make the ¾” X 1 ½” size – but think how many I would need! 

I really love how this layout looks – it has so much action happening.  Lots of energy – maybe it will rub off on me when it is finished!

There will be a new project starting soon – I promised Linda I would make her a tote bag.  I will start gathering stuff for that in the next couple of days.

Off to bed!
