    Interesting, Sue, I guess we all work differently. I work on all six wedges at the same time, adding the same piece to each wedge, seems way faster than one at a time to me. But I also don't follow their numbering and try to add the pieces in a way so some of them can be added at the same time, the ones that are not touching of course. Hopefully that makes sense to someone lol.

    I do one wedge to make sure I like the colors and then I work on the next 5 at the same time working on the next number on each and so forth.

    I do all 6 wedges at the same time. I think that is why I'm stuck on the log cabin. I've had a hard time deciding on colors for two of the sections and just stalled. I'm almost ready to take the plunge and see how it turns out. I used to just chop off a piece of fabric when paper piecing. This is the first time I've cut the pieces ahead of time. I like it SO much better and I'm not having to reverse sew any. That's a good thing!

There should be a thread posted on the Mystery here on the board, I have participated in it the last two years. Hope you join us this year!
    So, JeanieG, is the mystery something I'll be able to work from my from? I imagine that she'll give just a few instructions every month for several months?

    I'm working on Jamestown Landing from String Fling now and am getting pretty close to having all the half-square triangles done. Haven't done any of the alternate string (neutral) blocks done. I've done it almost exclusively with leaders and enders.

Or you can peel and process and can the sweet potatoes or freeze them. We have done all three ways.
    Thanks, QNS, I may give it a go next summer and see what happens. I just pulled the last green peppers out of the garden. Won't have any with good flavor again until next summer. Sigh . . .

    Did you get all of your sweet potatoes out of the ground?

    Sweet potatoes are out; BIL came and helped and took 3 feed bags home with him...it left just the right amount for us.

    I have been working on diamonds all around and its going sooooo slow. Two wedges left to finish. Different colors from what I have done so far....back to the original thought using the Rainbow color pack.
