Now that I've finished my August mini and it's on its way to Janet O, I've had some time to focus on other projects.
I did finish another little Primitive Gatherings Freebie, which I am just loving. I finished that up on the drive up to the cabin; have two more in process and I'm almost done, except for the finish, which I haven't even figured out yet.
I might even go so far as to say that I'm getting my stem stitch figured out...maybe!
I've also been working on Bonnie H's block, the diamond tiles. I love that block. I can precut the pieces and them whip them up. Sadly, one block was missing one piece so I had to substitute. No big deal, right?? Not particularly noticeable, hopefully. I didn't have any more of the original green so I had to scrounge around the cabin for something close.
One of my favorite parts of this block is the ability to fussy cut the centers; and to play around with coordinating the 3 other fabrics. These are the latest blocks I've been making this week.
Sadly, in the middle of my progress, my little iron died. These little ones are great for pressing individual blocks next to my machine and they don't last terribly long but I was still very sad to lose this one. I did have one of those little Rowenta irons here at the cabin so I was able to substitute. Have you had better luck with any little irons? I'd love to hear about it.
I have covered little tv tables (from when we'd eat tv dinners in front of the tv when I was a kid!) and set one up adjacent to my machine. It's perfect. No need to get up! VBG
Hope everyone is enjoying a great last weekend of summer.
