HARD WORK WITH PURPLE
The entire result of my piecing this week was only two blocks. Life seemed to keep me away from my quilting. One beautiful sunny afternoon I did get out to see the birds passing through. It was my first sighting of cedar waxwings, a group of them flitting around a tree full of dried berries. That was the best day of the week.
I did finish my purple with yellow slab block. It is 8.5 inches, to mix in with my 16-patch blocks.
The rest of the last couple of days was spent RIPPING AND ROARING. I was making my third twinkler block and had a nice selection of scraps picked out. On the first blue one In Januarly I had cut and pieced the wrong fabric and had to rip it and replace it. On the second one, brown and pink, I repeated the same mistake again. I certainly did not learn that lesson.
This time I made sure I had the right fabrics for the right blocks, but I merrily stitched one set of them upside down. Rip again times four. Not the end. They were lined up wrong so two more ripped out. And by this time I was so upset and anxious to finish that I ended up with at least two more rips.
But I finally finished it as best I could just in time to get my photos taken.
I think I must have dyslexia of piecing, or whatever you call it. I have not decided whether to continue making this block. Maybe it’s a mental block block. I do love those twinklers, so we shall see what April brings. Have a good week everyone and much success in your efforts.
