And what did you do this month?
Did you use your powers for good?
I did. I made these:
for the do. Good Stitches bee. These were made with fabric from my stash and the recipient is a mother and her 1-year-old son. Jennifer from Texas requested the blocks and is putting them all together. I think they’re very pretty. I only had to remake the one on the left twice. Sigh. And I ditched one that scared me – I was afraid they’d kick me out of the bee for the horror of it. Here it is:
They were supposed to be six-minute circles but not when I did them. They took considerably longer than 6 minutes each (funny – the directions actually broke down each step into how many seconds it should take. Ha!) Perhaps had I done 50 of them, I might have gotten it down to somewhere near 6 minutes, but just the freezer paper cutting took a minute. Hm. Maybe I’m not such a good cutter…?
One thing I realized recently is that my house really sucks for taking pictures. I have the hardest time finding just the right spot to take the picture and doing it at night is simply out of the question. Since I took the day off today to work on a major project, I took advantage of an abundance of light to take the pictures. And still? Not sure I’m really liking them much. The first set of pictures were taken today; the others were taken in the morning misty rain (the scary block) and at night (Jaclyn’s block). See what I mean? For sure I need a new camera, possibly even a new house. I’m working on both.
As for the project? It’s done and in the mail and I don’t have to worry about it again for several months. I can’t describe the feeling of lightness I have right now. It’s so great. I truly feel like I have a major weight lifted from my shoulders.
