Six Down, Six to Go

January 25, 2010

Abandoned book "A Cat Named Brat" by Lydia Adamson ♦◊◊◊◊

Wow, that's not a really inspiring title. For some reason it gives me that "glass half empty" feeling.

Maybe because this block pretty much kicked my butt.

The color's not very accurate on my monitor (are they still called monitors?), but considering I snapped the picture at nearly midnight, this is as good as it's gonna get for awhile.

So, I'm not thrilled with the leaves - and yes, I did make them in 2 colors after all. It will all work out when everything's put together, I'm sure, but for now this isn't my favorite block.

That's actually pretty weird because I remember when it was first published I had grand ideas about enlarging the block and making a stunning wallhanging from it alone. Apparently that's SO last year.

In other news, my Blogaversary counter over there is wrong, and I can't figure out why. I also haven't done a lot to try to figure out why. I'm pretty sure that my anniversary is coming up fairly soon. There probably should be a giveaway, huh?

Well, you have been very busy since I visited your blog last. Love all your applique. The red delicious block will look fabulous with the ones you have made so far.
I have been thinking about changing my Oct. basket block. I have decided I really don't want to do the witch so I will looking for something else to represent Oct.

I think the block is beautiful. It will go very nicely with the others.

You're too hard on yourself! The leaves look fine. Now I so understand the "block kicked my butt" thing, that it made me smile. I sure can relate to that, hahaha. Hang in there, your halfway there! Woo-hoo!
