remember that I am doing '2' hand piecing projects with the same blocks--
Well--I 'thought' I had gotten the Christmas one done--
more on that one later--
Friday night I started on the Aqua one--
and did 3-4 strips of the white with the little aqua squares in them
When I sat down late afternoon on Saturday to continue working on them--
I discovered a problem--
I had cut them wrong size--
some were only 7" long--what???
and some where 9" long--
luckily I played with the 9" ones --cause I soon learned
they were too short too!!!
I needed 9 1/4" long--my blocks came out a bit small--
I think they were suppose to be 9 1/2"--
I had to get up and cut 18 more strips of 9 1/4" long--
and then went back to work--
I did get the main body done--
but still have the outside border to do!!
Now back to the Christmas one--
I knew yesterday after I posted the photo that the cardinal block
didn't look right--
then this morning in looking closer -
I made the discover that the block above the cardinal-
the cup of cocoa is pointed wrong too--
So that will be my first job this afternoon--
unstitching 2 blocks and moving them to an new angle
and then restitching them back into the quilt--
this will also mean-
2 of the half triangle pieces will have to be 'unstitched'!!!!!
Now for --
This is the new project I started this morning--
I just love this mouse!!!
and I just know she is cooking up something 'yummy'!!!
and then later while I watch the race this afternoon--
I will be embroidering on this piece--
last week I got the morning glories almost done--
they need a french yellow knot in their centers yet!!
And I forgot my monthly report for--
For the month of May--
I stitched 31 out of 31 days--
thanks to doing an applique heart of the day!!!
And I stitched a total of 125 hours for the month!
SO OFF I GO TO STITCH--
TO EVERYONE WHO IS STILL WORKING AT STAYING AND BEING SAFE--
I LOVE YOU FOR IT--
