|2 Down, 34 Blocks to Go|
Once I had the first pineapple block done and knew I was happy with my fabric choices (and I knew the paper piecing method was working out as well), I spent two or three days savagely slicing up perfectly good fabric into 1 1/2" strips. Then I had to order a bit more yardage, because a couple of the Kaffe Fassett Collective prints from the jelly roll of precut strips were REALLY good for this project, and I knew I wanted more of them.
The actual sewing of the second block went faster since the strips were ready to sew. And now that's two blocks down, and 34 more blocks to go for a California King.
In other news, I took my 13-year-old son for his first pedicure this morning, with Grammy and Grampa (it was Grampa's first pedicure, too). Lars REALLY liked the massage chair at the nail salon:
|Lars: "We need one of these chairs at home, Mom!!"|
I felt that Lars deserved some pampering after scrounging around in the wilderness for three days with his father, being chased by bears (sort of). You can read about those adventures here if you're interested -- Lars loves comments. :-)
I'm linking up with Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times and to Esther's WOW: WIPs on Wednesday. Have a great day!
