Well, our marriage survived the cell antenna installation and unfortunately it doesn't work. Our house is too poorly situated to pick up a good signal so I'm packing it up and sending it back. That was 3 hours of sewing time wasted.
The good part of the day was getting free HD upgrade from DirectTV and that installation went well. We also bought Excede internet service through DirectTV and will get a $10 discount on our bill for a year. The internet will be installed Monday. I hope it goes well. Out current internet service is so incredibly poor. I don't think Excede can be worse.
After all that was done I decided to play in EQ and see what kind of ideas I could come up with for the HST quilt. Here are some of them.
This is the layout that I used the last time I made one of these.
This is the layout that I'm playing with on the design wall.
I tried asymmetrical but this just isn't me.
Positive/negative. I like this. It might look even better with a horizontal orientation.
This is nice.
"Modern"? I think this is a lot of fun.
Same thing but vertical. I think I'll put this one on the design wall and see how it looks.
But not today. Today I'm off to Montpelier to CSQ sewing Friday and Saturday. Yay!
