My Blog List
Cutting is my least favorite part of any project, but now that I have started it..
I can't WAIT to get done so I can start piecing some of these blocks. Piecing is my favorite part. I love watching a block come together.. like putting a puzzle together. YUM.
Here is the progress:
Had to cut three sets of strips, so far.. (I'm saving the strips for the sashing to cut when I actually need it.) Twelve strips, then nine, then six.. Which will be turned into..
72 pieces, 108 pieces, and 54 pieces. For someone who really dislikes the cutting process, I have my work "cut out" for me! Bleh. BUT, I can't wait to have it done! Because then comes the fun part!
Other things keeping us busy this week..
Pajama day at preschool, complete with pillow-making and a pillow fight..
Walking the preschool class about four blocks to a Greg and Steve concert, where there were about 400 screaming 0-6 year olds..
I read that Europe is having a record cold winter.. but winter seems to have forgotten to show up here. It has been perfect Spring-like weather lately, and Buster has been loving the dog park!
And working up quite a thirst..
And Austin has been practicing his writing at the dog park, too. :o)
Cutting is my least favorite part, too. But then I remember having to use cardboard templates for my first quilt, so now that I have a rotary cutter and rulers, I guess I can't complain too much. ;-)
My heart melted at the heart and mom. How sweet!
Oh the cutting is definitely not top of my favourite things to do either, I just want to sew! It will be worth it though (keep telling yourself that!)
Winter took a very long time to find us in Europe, but since it did it a couple of weeks ago, it seems to be making up for lost time!
That pattern makes me swoon! ;-) It is so pretty! Cutting is my least favorite too. I was just thinking the other day that making quilts is just like putting together a puzzle and I LOVE puzzles!
Buster looks like he is having FUN and also the kiddos having their pillow fight. How cute!
