I've been doing a lot of prep work for the classes I hope to be teaching next year and so I haven't done as much other sewing as I would like recently, though I suspect I would have to sew 24 hours a day to come close to being satisfied! I have no idea where November went to?!
I did manage to sew together my Propellar blocks for my Green Tea and Sweet Beans quilt. I chose to keep the one I cut wrong and I don't think it looks too odd:
I also finished the third Garden Path block:
and while I was doing that I kind of panicked. Am I doing it right? Are my stitches ok? I have no clue! I'm pretty sure it's not even close to perfect and I'm ok with that so long as they will hold up alright! Could anyone who hand sews tell me if this looks right please!? I use a long needle because I find it easier and I'm more comfortable with it because that's what I use for epp. The thread is 50wt Aurifil.
Talking of what's right, my son (who has slight OCD tendencies) received a colouring book recently and decided to count the number of stickers. He was really cross that there were only 50 and my step Dad then suggested he count the pages too. He felt so disappointed that there wasn't over 50 stickers and over 30 pages as the cover stated. So I said he could write a letter to the publishers:
And two days later he received a nice letter of apology, a story book and an activity book. He's thrilled and genuinely happy that they will be correcting the colouring pad for the next reprint! He also enjoyed writing them a thank you note, complete with his own drawing of spider-man.
