It is a beautiful day here! The humidity and the heat this summer have been oppressive, but today we have been blessed with a cool(er), sunny, lovely day. But I need to get some things accomplished - ugh.
On the TO DO LIST for today:
ADD some stitches to this project
Work on this project - I can't get enough of these cute little pigs. For these wedges I am using a 45 degree ruler. Piecing several strips of fabric (salvage to salvage) and making several cuts with the wedge ruler. Then chain piece two wedges at a time - 8 wedges in all for one block. Piece two of those together to make one-half of the circle, then sew the two halves together - matching center points. The ruler I used is Petal Shapes by Darlene Zimmerman. I simply squared off the top of the wedge to create an octagon rather than a petal. To make the octagon into a square block, simply add a 3 1/2 inch triangle to every other wedge....4 triangles in all.
Clean - yuck!
Make - dinner - hmmm -what to do with chicken?
As for the blogging....it is getting somewhat easier. This is the third day in a row! Yay!
