Apparently, I've been a little distracted. I started this blog a week ago and forgot all about it. My mind is obviously on vacation already. I worked on Rich's Marine Corp quilt a few weeks ago.
All of these 9 patch blocks are 1/2 the size they're supposed to be, because I can't read instructions. I didn't even realize it until I was putting things up on the design board and nothing was lining up. I need 6 inch blocks and have 3 inch instead. Luckily, the next step in the quilt is to make a lot of 4 inch filler blocks. So, at least they won't be wasted. I'll just put 1 inch strips on 2 sides. Thank God for scrappy quilts!
I finished this cute stocking for Jackman's. Not really my style, but whatever. It's pretty. My mom would have liked it. I'll have a lone, fancy stocking for decorations next year. Maybe I can fill it and give it as a gift. It would still be all by itself, though and that seems really sad.
I was going for Ice Cream colors for the project and I love mint and brown together but it's not working on this. It makes the whole thing juvenile. Not worth the time I have invested. I like the first 3 blocks better but not enough to keep going. I guess, if I really wanted to, I could redo the hot pink and use something less intense. As of today, I don't care enough to bother.
Tootles for now!
