|Doesn't Oren look thrilled? He had a bad allergy attack Tuesday and he's very grouchy in his recovery of it... I did make Emma's shirt. I'll show it in the next day or so.|
I have some secret sewing going on for a very special sister who celebrated her birthday yesterday! I did tell her yesterday, but for the blog, Happy Birthday Carrie!!!!
|Do you think we look alike? Growing up, people didn't believe we were sisters. They said we looked nothing alike...|
But I've also been working on some do. Good projects. Ronit asked for triangle-in-a-triangle blocks this month. We each made 3 since they are smaller than the average 12.5 inch block. Here are my 3.
Plus, I've finally gotten over my sewing block with the tilted square sashing for my do.Good Stitches quilt from December (gasp!). I've got all 20 blocks sashed on top and bottom and am now sashing up the sides. Another thing Chris finds amusing is my lack of ability to "see" math. What I mean is, for the life of me, I have a hard time looking at something and figuring out how make it happen...like how big of pieces to cut or how to cut them...How to sew tilted sashing onto 20 squares to get them to tilt back and forth...how to estimate how big of pieces I will need and then how I still get it wrong after I measure 3 times before I cut once. It's a wonder I love quilting with all of the math involved... I tell him that kindergarten teachers only need to add and subtract to 10, so I let all of that geometry go...
But here are the squares in progress...I'm hoping to make significant progress on this one in the next week and my goal is to have it done by Easter...I'm up again to be the quilter and choose the quilt in May, so it would be nice to be done by then, huh? ;)
Chris and I are dropping the kids off with Aunt Carrie tonight for a date night...rare occurrence around here and we're looking forward to it! Hunger Games here we come!! I hope y'all are having a great week as well, and if I don't check in again, I'll be back next week with regularly-scheduled programming. :)
