There is a reason I wasn't going to join any more bees or swaps this year. You want to know why? I am TERRIBLE with deadlines! I can blame it on the power being out during the hurricane, getting my first child ready for kindergarten, this horrible cold I've had for a week now, or downright fear of doing blocks I've never done before. And then there's the keeping up with 3 kids and trying to keep my house clean.
Okay, those all played a part, but the real excuse? Procrastination. And I feel REALLY bad about it. So to dear Darci and John, I'm SO SORRY!!!
I've actually had these stars done for a while. I love doing them - we used this tutorial. I love the green background she chose. It's a bold choice and one that will work well with all of her fun bright things!
Now John (aka Quilt Dad) asked for spider web blocks. And I. Was. Scared. But once I read the tutorial and started sewing, I realized they aren't much different from a string block. And I love the way they turned out!!
As always, I put off starting them because I was afraid of ruining them! Especially since he sent this gorgeous Tula Pink Flutterby fabric which is out of print.
So now that school is getting in full swing, I'm at the end of this cold, and I don't think we have a hurricane hitting us this week, I might actually be able to get some more sewing done. Let's hope so!
