2 Steps Forward, 3 Steps Back
I finished 2, started 3. Dang it.
But, look how cute! The little cross stitch is a free pattern on Craftsy by Brooke's Books Publishing. She releases 1 a month. I'm about a year behind on the 25. It's an advent count down. I have no idea what they will become. Perhaps ornaments. I don't like that I started them on the oatmeal Aida. I really wish I'd gone with light blue, like her samples. Check out her stuff! So cute!
Then last month, I did this violet in a basket. The violet was the BOM. I do plan on doing 1 block just like the pattern they're giving me but the rest are going on pieced blocks.
I have all of the main blocks done. The alternating blocks need corners. I don't think I'm going to do the pieced border from the pattern. Mostly because I don't think this is fun at all. And, don't get me started on cutting 8 layers of fabric at one. Gees!
I thought seeing how all the different blocks looked was interesting but when that was done, so was my attention span. Luckily I bought tons of extra fabric, so changing things up isn't going to be a problem.
That's it for now. I've got a Triple Irish Chain around here somewhere. I'll try to remember a picture next time! See ya later, alligator!
