With winter approaching and holidays coming up, I’m feeling a little stressed about deadlines. Dealing with my UFOs was my priority, so I went through a pile of 8-inch blocks that I’ve been collecting. This is my favorite size for piecing because I don’t like to work too small.
Several of the blocks are from a Rainbow Scrap Challenge several years ago.. I like them and plan to make a wallhanging with these four.
I began adding framing for the blocks, using white jellyroll strips.
However, for some unknown reason the 1/4-inch foot suddenly went off course, jamming the needle so that it broke. With this post needing to be written, for my own sanity I wisely decided to call it a night.
Here is how far I got on adding the block borders.
What would you have done? I’m in no mood to attempt replacing the needle (I have a plentiful supply on hand). I would much rather cry on your sympathetic shoulders, dear friends.
