You know, as I move my marker from "50", I'm not so sure I like that saying any more! Out with the old??! But why? It's still perfectly good! New is *not* necessarily better ... is it?! NO! Ha!
Todd and I did venture out for a bit yesterday. It wasn't encouraging that right off the bat, the car decided not to cooperate!
A jump start and she was fine. We even stopped and had the battery checked to make sure it didn't need replacing, but it was fine, too. I think she may have been a tad jealous that we used the golf cart for our 'first' outing. Persnickety thing!
We needed real food, so the grocery store was on our circuit. Actually, I went there while Todd took off to see about the car. Call me crazy but I'd been craving red meat. With gravy. And homemade yeast rolls (what is this affair with bread making lately?) . . .
Dinner was good . . . and so will be today's lunch!
I finished whipping up all my little pieces for the GC block and started whipping them together.
I remember now why I skipped this block. I've probably made it a lot more difficult than it needed to be, but it sure looks pretty!
Especially when it's attached to the background fabric!
When I got tired of whipping pieces together, I pulled out my snowflake block fabrics. I decided that since I really did want the look of a snowflake, I'd try it in blues and whites and grey. Here's what I came up with:
I had to do a little refresher course on paper-piecing, it had been so long. But once I saw the first step, it all came back ... like riding a bicycle ...
Yes -- I'm very pleased with the overall on this one!! (I photocopied my one finished one six times so I could see what the finished piece would look like. It's how I roll.) Now only five more triangles to do. Hmmm . . . where is that GC block?
If my recollecting is correct, in addition to the snowflake, I started (and even finished) a couple of other NewFO projects in the merry ol' month of December.
Pretty darn productive and definitely worth a link up to the December NewFO linky party over at Cat Patches!!
Finally, the view out of the RV window this morning . . .
I love living in a place where this is what greets me in the morning! Enjoy this last day of 2013 and let me wish you a very happy, peaceful and blessing-filled 2014!
