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.
