Getting Caught Up!
I am finally getting caught up. I had two months of Bee's Knees Blocks to do. The first was a simple House block and was fun to do. The second one was a Tea Leaf block and was paper pieced. The last of the blocks are off in the mail today.
I had to trace the paper piecing pattern by hand because my printer decided to not work right and the blocks were all a different size. So I got out my light box that hubby made for me and went to work. I like to use a small stitch length with a jeans needle when paper piecing because the paper comes off easier and you don't have to worry about pulling out stitches. Then I usually do better taking the paper off first then sewing the block together.
My month is coming up for August so I had better get going and figure out what I want to do for my block. Also the Friday Night Sew in is coming up soon and I can use the extra sewing time.
