I finished all the half square triangles for my pinwheel blocks. Woo hoo, it's a pinwheel party. A plethora of pinwheels.
Plenty of trimming on these little guys, but so worth it to have them all come out a perfect 3 1/2 inches square. I am using my Precision Trimmer for the job. It really didn't take too long.
You know what makes a slightly tedious task a bit more bearable? I like to listen to audio books. I have a subscription to Audible.com, and each month I get a new credit for a book I can download to my iPod. The latest selection I have been enjoying has been quite enthralling. It is called "State of Wonder" by Ann Patchett.
I thought this book was positively awesome. It is set in the Amazon, a place full of truly mind boggling mysteries. Also way too full of snakes and bugs and very strange indiginous people. A doctor who works for a pharmaceutical company is sent to the Amazon to check on the progress of a drug study and disappears, presumed dead. His office mate follows the trail in an effort to get some answers, and gets way more than she bargained for. The descriptions are poetic, the characters well conceived, and the plot wildly fantastical. I loved it!
