Since my friend Jenny visited the other day with her Double Irish Chain quilt, I have been absolutely hanging to make my own. I have had the pieces cut out in my ‘scrap users system’ boxes for some time, but for various reasons have not had the opportunity to get to it.
Well, last night, I decided to start! Even if only to satisfy my need to make some of these wonderful blocks. It’s a bit nutty, after all, it’s not like I’ve never made them before, because I made the table toppers using this pattern for Donna and Karen. Anyway, last night I made 5 blocks. They were super quick to put together. I just kept sewing pairs together, and then one of the pairs had an extra sewn to it, and the block was made! Now I'll need to make some of the alternate blocks so the pattern pops out. I apologise if the picture quality is poor, I had to take the picture with my phone as I accidentally flattened my camera yesterday … I left it turned on while connected to the laptop … all day! Ooops!
On Tuesday I went shopping at a variety store … needed some things like stationery etc …. and made a fatal mistake at the checkout … they had these puzzle books called Sudoku. I thought it looked interesting and picked one up. Big mistake … I tried one, and then another … they’re addictive! I didn’t see a warning on the cover … “warning – if you’re easily addicted, look away”. I will have to give the book to Amy, I don’t think I have room in my life for another time consuming addiction!
Just a quick question to those of you who use bloglines. I signed up yesterday, and I’m not really sure exactly how to use it (I haven’t had a lot of time to check it out). I assume you load all your fave blogs in there, do you then view them within bloglines, or is it a notification service? Any input would be appreciated!
Have a great day everyone!
