Yesterday was Mardi Gras down here in Louisiana. It’s a big party before we start our lenten journey. I’ve growned out of the party part and usually just enjoy a day off with my family. I’m not too crazy about the crowds anymore. But since I got an extra day off this week I was able to do a little sewing. I wake up way too early in the morning. My husband follows me about 3 hours later. It’s such a wonderful quite time for me and my machine.
I’ve been able to sew my hour-glass blocks together and press them. Now I’ll have to cut them apart and put them back together in order to have them disappear. So far they are coming out good. I imagine that the next part will be more difficult to match up. We will see. I haven’t cut blocks into 9 pieces so that may be a challenge the first time for me.
Here’s pictures of some of my blocks. You can check out the tutorial here.
The linky parties I usually participate in can be found by clicking this link. Please visit them and see what others are up to. There are many bloggers out there who share their tips, projects, and tutorials to inspire us.
That’s all for now. Thanks for stopping by.
