52 week photo challenge

The word for this (last) week is fan.  This is the fan in my greenhouse that blows the air around and keeps the plants from overheating.  Even though it isn’t that hot here it can get really hot in the greenhouse during the day – like 42 C.

I can tell it was hot this day as I had the window open.  You can see I have lots of weeds in my greenhouse.  They grow like crazy in the heat.  And I don’t mind them as long as they stay out of my plant beds.  Isn’t it cool how you can see the fan is going around.

Friday Night With Friends Report

Well my sewing started on Thursday night so I was keeping company with the Aussie participants. Smile  And then it ended this morning…. – keeping company only with myself…

I put second rounds on two more hexie flowers.  These ones are busy and bright!  I photographed them on the grass to try and give an impression of what they will look like when they have the green hexie pathways in between.  But I don’t think it really gives the idea.

I have learnt that it is tricky using directional fabric on second round hexies.  I cut and basted the yellow hexies a couple of months ago, then couldn’t quite figure out how to make them look good as a second round.  In the end I think this way works.  The inner flower kind of looks like a big star floating in the galaxy.  Okay… I have a good imagination. Smile

I hope you had a great FNWF.  Check everyone’s progress out here.
