Blue Hexagon flowers
This picture shows the border and corner. I decided to make a patchwork border as I have a huge amount of blue and white fabric that I have collected over the years. This way, I would use up the fabric. Well I still have a large stash of the fabric.
Border and corner
I counted up the number of rectangles I would need to make the border, and spent ages cutting and cutting. After I completed the quilt borders, I realised I had a large number left over. All I needed was to cut a few more, and I now have a lap quilt as well. The miscalculation-- by a mile-- was not wasted after all.

I am making 2 small mats for the bedside tables as well. So my blue and white stash is decreasing.
I now have to send these 2 quilts away to be quilted.
I finally have my etsy shop up and running. Only to find a big mistake on my part re the postage. It was adding the full postage for additional pieces-- which was incorrect. I have corrected it and hopefully, I have rectified all the problems.
I am sure there are people out there who are miles better than me with the computer and don't have the problems that I seem to accumulate when I use the computer. I am slow with it and have problems working out the steps. So it becomes very time consuming. Lucky for me, my son was home and I managed to get him to show me how to do more with the site. Hence, I have learnt to put a banner up for the etsy shop-- a photo of my buttons. Well I decided that I will also change the header on my blog to match. Now I know how to do that, I will be able to change them more often too.
Tomorrow is Father's Day in Australia. A Happy Father's Day to all the dads and husbands.
It has finally stopped raining, and I will take advantage of that and go for a walk before it starts up again.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
