The February mini quilt is almost done. I can't finish it because the Juki is in use at the moment.
I am having the time of my life making loop de loops all over Daddio's quilt. I only have one more block to do and then I can re-thread it with pink for the mini quilt.
Dear Jane is giving me fits. The third block was a real doozy. I tried three times with no luck. In my defense, this pattern should never be paper pieced in the first place. Those points and curves are just crazy.
This was the best out of three tries. Ugh. I give up.
Mercifully the next block went together without a hitch. Now the plan is to do all the blocks and pitch the ones that don't make the grade.
The whole purpose of this project was to challenge myself not to end up with another quilt I really don't need. I've been challenged all right and I'm only four blocks in. Yikes.
I also need to thank Elizabeth for the lovely care package I received yesterday. The stitch markers are already in use-a new project, details later, the tea is brewing and as for that chocolate.....well, chocolate doesn't last long around here. Thanks for cheering up my rainy Saturday. You're the best!
