Little Red Schoolhouse

This week's Grandmother's Choice block wasn't tooooo bad; a traditional school house block, but I still substituted my own version.  No pattern - I drafted it on graph paper.  Even though I measured carefully, it wouldn't square up, so I had to tear out the centre horizontal seam, re-sew it, and press both horizontal seams open in order to get an 8 1/2" unfinished block.  Gotta do whatcha gotta do!  But now, I'm a block ahead!

Didn't make it to Ancaster today - - we had some friends from home pop in.  A little window shopping,  the best Chinese dinner ever, and coffee at a nearby cafe.    We had a great time.
