Modern Round Robin – Round 1: completed. Whew!
After a slight timeline set back Thursday (migraines will do that to a girl), I pushed through and was finished by late, late Friday night. Saturday, I talked my husband and girls into coming with me to the park to take some pictures. I think it turned out rather nice.
Later that afternoon I broke out my City Sampler blocks and whipped a few of them out. I hadn’t realized the last one I had sewn was at the end of March!
On Sunday my poor husband asked if I could please take a break from the sewing machine. I have my machine set up on a low sofa table in our family room and I seem to have a particular knack for using it at the exact moment he’s trying to listen to the television. We are in the midst of a True Blood marathon and the thrumming of my machine does not blend well with the goings on in Bon Temps. Thankfully I had discovered this site and had printed off dozens of 1.5″ hexies on cardstock. Using this tutorial from The Zen of Making, I tried a few with some scrap charm squares. I’m still not sure I’m doing it right. My mom had taken an English Paper Piecing class, so I’ll have to ask her for some more instruction.
This week I’ll try to tackle some more of these Tula blocks I have cut out.
For all you peeps in the US – have a great Fouth of July weekend! We’ll be celebrating the long holiday weekend with my family. Have a great week!
