Friday Fun

Last Saturday during the Saturday football marathon, I finished piecing the Block Three of the 2011 Designer Mystery BOM (yes, I’m behind). I do like the look of this one.

BOM Block 12 Finish

Yes, I just finished the American Beauty BOM block 12! This is the last actual block, but there is much sashing and setting triangles stuff to still be completed before the top is completed. Which brings up some questions in my mind. Questions such as: Do I use this as my hand sewing at work …

A Little Progress

Yes, today was a work day. Yes, I would have expected that I could finish up Block 12 of the American Beauty BOM, but that did not happen! I had a bit of work to do. (Fancy that! At work of all places!) The work day always goes faster when there is real work to …
