BATIK JEWELS - 9 DOWN 8 TO GO

I really like these things. Of course, when I try to put those top and bottom pieces on as a "Y" seam I am still asking myself why did I start this project. Ran out of some major colors so will have to do some shopping in Paducah. Also need to locate some spangles and beads that will be put on each star point. My nephew is cutting some templates for me (he works for a glass company) that will be used to cut the fill in parts of this (Black Fabric). Will pick those up while I am IN. next week. I haven't looked at the rest of the directions but I am sure it will involve more "Y" seams. Ugh!! Thinking seriously of leaving the final assembly for Quilt Camp in Sept. so I will have a lot of expert help on this part. (good thinking on my part)

It is back to packing for me. Think I just about have it, if I don't change my mind again.

Also going to go check out "Red Box" ($1.00 movie rentals) for "Atonement". A quiet Saturday night for DH and I.
