Mail came---such a cute kitty---AH--but no--this is what I got in "my mail box"--
Some honey instead---the Charm pack and Honey bun I won over on Kelly's site for the Spring sew in, came today---I just love this line and I had nearly ordered some from Kelly on the last order--now I have to order some--3 pieces to go with this line and I even "think"(??) I know what I am going to do these--but it is a "secret" as it is something that just "popped" into the old head today when I was "drooling" over the charm pack!!!! Thanks again -- Kelly--
I spent most of the day on our monthly Schnibbles pattern--
Roundabout---and I was ready to rename it to -- "wonky-roundabout" as it seemed to be all coming out a bit wonky!!!! Last night I was rereading a quilt magazine and in one of the articles--there was ideas and hints written from some US designers--I was surprised at how many now "press" there seams OPEN instead of to one side--also one of the them said that they do not press anything until the block is all stitched together---SO---I decided to "try" both of these ideas and see what would happen with my "wonky" blocks---
And it was the "magic" trick---they came out really well after that---(you do have to press the straight pieces where we sew the corner piece on though first)---but I really liked pressing the seams open on this one--plus I know it will make a BIG difference when I go to hand quilt it!!!
Later after a break I went back to sewing the blocks into rows---and you will never guess who showed up------
The "point police" yep--got the first row done and was on the second one when this "guy" came for a visit and guess what he "slapped" in my hand-----
And I was informed that the "points" were way off and I had better do something about them---then he left----he actually "left"----so I had to use it all by myself and redo the rows---BUT--I have to admit---they do look alot better now---
so Thanks Mr. Point Police!!!
We are starting to see the Robins here again and today the singing birds were out and about (along with some flyin bugs) so maybe spring is gonna arrive soon!!!
