I got a late start last night but I decided to continue working on the past project I started for FNSI. For those who read that post know the trouble I had. I took those blocks I’d sown apart, remeasured, and resown. When I got to the end my 2 1/2″ square patches didn’t measure 2 1/2″. I was so frustrated that I just threw them out. Don’t have pictures of that. LOL
So I re-cut my squares and started over. This is as far as I got.
Before sewing I’m making sure I’m pinning these pieces good! So far it seems to be going better. I’ll know it worked when I get to the step where I cut to make the 2 1/2′ square blocks. I’m sooooo ready to be past this row.
Onto more fabulous news, I received my Valentines swap gift! My Valentine was Donna @donnaslavendernest!! She has such a sweet blog and what a sweet lady. Just take a look at the lovely things she sent!!
Thank you soooo…..much Donna!! I just love everything you sent!!! My gifts came wrapped in lavender tissue paper tied in lavender/white string. I’d had a stressful day so finding these wonderful gifts in my mailbox was just soooo…..Fabulous!!
Just finished sewing the pieces together guess what? Doesn’t measure right. Now the question is: After spending so much time on this double checking everything 4 times, at what point do you just throw in the seam ripper? Grrrr…….
