I never get as much done as I think I will.
Or, even as much as I want to.
I often make lists of things to do.
I seldom stick to the list.
There is always something that comes up.
Sometimes, I decide that I just plain
don't feel like doing what is on the list.
I had a ton of stuff on my list
for this 3 day holiday weekend.
I accomplished about 1/3 of it.
Am I upset about that?
I had a great weekend.
That's what counts.
I did get some sewing in for
the 'aqua and red block bee swap'.
Lynne asked for sampler-type blocks.
I made two for her
(just cuz I could).
These are both 12 1/2 inch blocks...
Then, the dreaded paper-piecing block.
I was quite hesitant about this one,
never before having done paper piecing.
However, the video found here made me
feel more at ease...like I could actually do this!
So, I did.
Let me tell you...
talk about time-consuming!
There are 4 sections to this block.
And, 2 parts to each section.
That means...8 parts to paper piece!
But, toward the end,
I was zipping right along.
I'm not sure if I'll look for
paper-pieced projects to
work on in the future.
But, I've now had the experience,
so it won't be quite so daunting
next time I run across it.
All that being said,
here's the kaleidoscope pattern block.
It's not perfect, but I am quite happy with it.
What else did I do these past three days?
*Ate my pint of ice cream.
*Ate lunch at Culver's.
*Sat in the front yard with Julie...
drinking our strawberry margaritas.
*Cleaned sewing room windows.
*The usual laundry, dishes, etc. stuff.
Here are the makings of my next project...
