Each month we are to make a 12” block and two 6” blocks. Today I made the large block and one of the smaller blocks.
Above is a picture of the sample blocks that Chris made to show us how the blocks should look. I took this picture so I wouldn’t forget. Notice: Right away when I looked at that picture today I noticed I goofed on the first block. The black flying Geese are in the wrong place, but I’m not about to unstitch it. The smaller block turned out okay. Now notice which block I did not do! It must have over a thousand little pieces in it!! Yikes!! And it's only a 6" block! I will make it…someday soon, when I’m not so tired or busy or …well, I will make it. After all, this is to help me improve my skills, and it looks like this block will put those skills to the test. For those of you in the Grand Rapids area I ask you…Do you have your Sampler blocks finished?

PS: It is now thundering and raining and poor Mr. Snowman is gone.
Until next time,
Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
