Early morning sewing
I was up before the crack of dawn this morning, and sewed some more blocks for Shirt Stripe Boxes - The Sequel! I did some calculations the other day, and it looks like I'll have to make this version 50% bigger than the first version I made, which was 33% bigger than the book instructions. Go big or go home!
I can't express how much fun it is to put these blocks together. I don't always get the stripes perfectly matched up, and in fact, the instructions give permission to let the stripes wave a little -- but it's so exciting when they come out perfect!
Rough day at work...whew! Glad to have my bra off, and my slippers on. I've made myself a cup of tea, and I'm going to catch up with this week's episode of "House".
