|Ouch, my eyes hurt!|
I finished my Black & Batik Sampler block for month three just in time to go back to the quilt shop and show it to get my next set of fabrics for block number four. I really need to start working on these a little bit sooner. I like it a lot better than the colors in month two!
Here is block number three.
|I really enjoyed making this one. Lots of fun!|
My granddaughter was my assistant for this one. She handed me pins and I held her hand and we guided the iron together as she helped me press seams. Not too long now before I will be teaching her how to sew. I figure by the time we get to the actual sewing I will have taught her all of the basics. She just loves to help. If I have to rip a seam out, she loves to pull all the tiny little threads for me - and who likes that job (not me)? I love my wonderful quilting helper!
You might notice the Earthy blocks are missing. Well, I didn't get them finished. Month two just needs a couple of seams - like really a couple of seams. And Month three needs all of the seams but it is cut. What I really need is more 'ME' time! Oh, and since everything is in disarray because of the next item some things just have to wait. (And in this case it's a good thing)!
The soon to be new quilting/sewing room has been painted and has new carpet - I am so excited! Can't wait to get everything moved in. More to come........
Have a great weekend,
