I had some time at the sewing machine yesterday, and thought I'd get the piecing started for the zipper bag I've been working on from Anni Downs' Simple Life book. So I happily joined all my little mini charm squares and then wondered why they looked like this bag would be enormous........ turns out I was meant to be using 1 1/2" squares, not 2 1/2". That saying about measuring twice and cutting once...... it is absolutely right, you usually do have to cut at least once....... rather than not at all! NOT happy - next time I will be more careful and actually READ the instuctions!
I also got Block 6 of the FQS BOM together, all up to date now, and ready for Block 7 to land in my mailbox. This block was designed by Kate Spain and is called 'Town Square'.
Running a little behind with these two November blocks for the Scrappy Stars Sew Along that Terry has been inspiring ........ check out her stars all made up into a top already.
And finally this is the ornament I sent to Cheryl in Chookyblues SSCS exchange ........ it is the 2010 Snowman by Lizzie Kate.
I was so sad to hear of the tragedy in Connecticut, my thoughts and good wishes are with all in the US.
Till next time............ happy stitching.........Nicky
