As I mentioned in my earlier post, tonight was the October Friday Night Sew In.
I was excited to continue working on my stalled Civil War Tribute blocks. I am way - very way- behind! Tonight I intended to make at least one of these:
I need 4 of them in total!
Here is how the night began:
5:30pm- leave work
6:00pm- arrive home to pick up the DH for dinner at our favorite neighborhood pub.
6:30pm- order is in, Youngest Child is pulling into the parking lot. We catch up on each others day over yummy-ness.
7:30pm- return home. Check mail, love on the dog a bit (it's been a long day), have a cup of coffee.
8:00pm- finish cutting the last of the 300 triangles needed for blocks. Yes, you read that number right- at my calculation, it will take a total of 300 triangle units to complete all 4 blocks:
8:30pm- begin construction of the 3" (unfinished) half-square triangle units:
10:00pm- begin squaring up the half-square triangles. Tendinitis is setting in!
10:30 take a break from squaring up and construct the beginning of the 4 needed blocks using these instructions:
and get this far- 4 square in a square units, addition of Flying Geese units to two sides (x 4):
11pm- call it a night- these blocks can be a bear and definitely need fresh eyes and a clear head. Besides, I have a class at the shop tomorrow at 10am sharp!
At least I got something done this time around!
Oh yes, and forgive the quality of the photos- it is late after all, and shadows are just bound to happen. I know y'all will get the essence of the blocks!
And another Friday Night Sew In comes to a close for this girl-
I can't wait to see what some of the more productive gals got done.
Good Night all!
