Another dash of the lovable churn dash block. I made all of these today! Suh-weet!
I don’t know what I’m doing with these. I cleaned out my stash and I’m cutting all the small pieces into shapes for this bock. These blocks are 6.5 inches unfinished and when I made the first one I thought what have I done? I messed it up, its too large. Ummm… no it was just fine, apparently 6.5 inches looks large next to 4.5 which is what the Dear Jane blocks are. I just need a bit of a break from Jane… how long did it take her to make that quilt? It seems a bit like it is taking forever!
Of course I have a few projects that are soooo close to being done, and I could have chosen to finish one of those while I take a “break” from Jane, but no… something new is in order! Maybe my motto will be whoever dies with the most unfinished projects wins. I do skip about and read other blogs where they steadfastly finish stuff but really, what fun is that?!
I was salivating over furniture on pinterest and I was all set to try to make something fancy… but if you want it to be 40″ tall there are not a lot of ready made choices! So I guess when the weather warms up Dude is gonna have to make me something spiffy from scratch, until then I must admit that my zip ties and crates kind of works great. Now… how can I make my ironing board taller…
Pssst… as a bonus, I bought those crates when we first moved to Oregon in 1992! Such value! Oh and do you see that cute monkey near the ceiling? I made him in my eighth grade home-ec class. Remember home-economics and shop class? I made an awesome hammer in shop class that is in my sewing room too, better get a pic of that as well.
Woohoo! Only four center rows to go!! Click here to see all the blocks I’ve finished so far.
I was reading somewhere about the top 10 blogging tips… and one of them was don’t blog just to blog. Clearly my meanderings over the YEARS and low readership proves one can blog just to blog…
My 12 year old just finished making these two cross-stitch projects. I don’t ever remember finishing any embroidery projects at her age. I love that she carried through and completed them… and of course that they look so awesome.
Psst… we don’t even have a dog… heehee… It should probably say “move mom.”
