Saturday Sewing

Saturday Sewing started with me pulling fabrics out of my scrap bin and the little half square triangle bin to make this set of Sow-A-Long blocks from Barrister's Blocks.  I'm quite excited for the last set to be posted and then the layout decisions can be make.  It will be a straight setting because I've already done one on point and it is patiently waiting for quilting.

I had to share my dork moment with you.  I was so careful to lay this block out before sewing the sides on to it.  I mean I was careful.  Then I picked it up to sew side one and dropped the piece.  I picked it up, put it where I wanted it and sewed it on.  Then I picked up the second side and sewed it on. When I layed it down to line up the half square triangle, this is what I saw.  How come I didn't see that before???  I just sat there and laughed, grabbed the camera and had to share.  Sometimes I scare myself with the things I do.  Please tell me I am not alone in things like this!

In the afternoon, I worked on Step 5 for Easy Street until I asked Ernie if he wanted fish and chips for dinner. He did, so off to town we go.  When we got home, we decided to watch a movie and chose Clint Eastwood's Trouble With the Curve.  We both really liked it.  This is what we call date night, dinner out and a movie at home, then sound asleep by 9.  Yes, we do live an exciting life.
