I have my very own version of the story of 'The Three Bears'--
and as any good story about the 3 bears it needs a papa bear, a momma bear, and a baby bear!!
and so does my story--
You remember me telling you about the Scrappy Plate bom group by Anne--
and so this is how my story goes--
First I made this one--
It measured 23" across--
this is the Papa bear--
had to go back to the sewing room with the correct tool and I made--
this is Momma Bear--
and it measures only 18" across--
thought I finally had a handle on it--
but as I kept running across blogs about this scrappy plate bom--
and I see they were making more that one--
something 'clicked' last night--that something was wrong!!!
so back to Bunny Tales site I went--
and again I read her notice about the bom--
still had questions--so I reread it for the 3-4 times by now--
and there it was--she said to get a set of the instructions to go to the top of her page and hit the 'free' button"--
well--that is what I did--
and I nearly cried--
so here is the 3rd attempt--
at 10 inches !!!!
and this is Baby Bear!!!!!
You only use 4 inch long strips--not the whole ruler of 8"--duhhhhhhhh!!!!!!
So the good news is--
I can probably get the whole 12 plates from the one layer cake!!!
Spend last night cutting out alot of the blades--so am ready to stitch up a storm now--
and I sure hope I have read it correctly this time!!!!
Oh and I stillllllll love this block and the fabrics I am using!!!!
I just need to learn "how-to-read"!!!!
Can you see the difference here--
baby bear is laying on top of momma bear--
really big difference!!!
Oh--am I going to 'frog' the Momma bear--
No way--she will be a wall hanging or a pillow!!!
I also got the counted cross stitch project done on the January Words today--
but need to finish it off yet--tomorrow--I will have more time tomorrow!!!!!
Hope you all have a great week ahead for lots of stitching!!
Hugs, Di and her baby--Miss Gracie
