Today's block threw me for a loop. I have taken it apart three times, and I think I am finally at a place where I like it. The second cross was what was bothering me. The first two times I did not have the right fabric combinations and it wasn't easy to see the second cross. This time I can see it clearly.
I think I had just too many fabrics with patterns the first two times. I don't know that I'm crazy about this one yet, but I definitely like it better than the first two. It is block number 112 of 366 and it is a 12-inch block.
Last night we traveled by car for five hours to the other side of Wisconsin so my son could participate in a Pine Wood Derby International Race. We had such a fun time, and five hours in the car on a Friday night with my husband and son made for some great hand stitching time and conversation. I had some extra hexagons basted so I thought I'd make them into flowers and have them ready to go. We have had a rough couple of weeks with some medical scares, and it was fun to see a new part of the country while enjoying quality conversation and laughs. We also discovered that sometimes we need to get away, even if it is only for a few hours.
This morning when we were heading to the race we found a barn quilt...I was so excited and so happy I had my camera in my hand. We came on it so quickly and we were in such a hurry I had to quick snap a picture. It was a beautiful morning and the scenery was a amazing. You'll have to excuse the head rest in the picture, if I try to crop the picture too much it becomes blurry. I hope your Sunday is relaxing and wonderful and that you can experience some of that special time we did with people you care about! Happy Stitching!! --Kristen
