I guess that is not technically true but it is my first modern block swap and I am so excited about it. I have to make 8 blocks from the Geese In A Ring pattern found here. It is paper pieced. (I am not a huge fan, but am getting faster at it). I LOVE this block so much. I have to make 7 blocks in the colors requested by each person in the group. Then send them to the swap mama to re-distribute. My good friend, Jeannette is participating. We are having fun "choosing" from each other's stash which fabrics we want in our block!I did so much ripping and re-stitching making this block, but I am happy with the outcome.
Here is my first block, made for Amy (Calico Cat) in her choice of orange and aqua:
When I came home from work yesterday I walked into my living room (sewing room) and saw this
Oh Aiden you are such a big goof! How do cat's do that? She has to be so umcomfortable! YIKES!!
Lastly I leave you with an amazing thrift shop find of mine from late last week.
I thought this little owl pin cushion was so adorable! Now, do any of you know that that hole in the bridge of her beak is for? Glasses? Scissors? Something else entirely? Inquiring minds want to know! ~XOP~
