When I'm piecing blocks I run an ender through the sewing machine so I don't have to cut my thread. Lately I've used a variety of leader/enders.
I have a lot of older fabrics cut into 2.5" squares. After I pieced a red jumbo granny square, I decided to piece more blocks using the older fabrics. I've pieced 4 more blocks.
In March I posted about piecing blue split 9 patch blocks. I had enough HST's on hand to piece 50 blocks. I need a total of 224 blocks so I need to piece 174 more blocks. Which means I need 348 more HST's. I am really glad I decided to use a solid square for the center of my blocks, otherwise I'd need even more HST's!
When I was washing the breakfast dishes the other day, I glanced out my kitchen window and saw Mabel slowly meandering her way up the driveway!
The farmer usually takes a nap after breakfast, his nap was cut short that day. I took some pictures of Mabel in my yard, the cows in the background look rather jealous and were wondering how she got out.
I was thankful the other cattle hadn't found the not quite shut gate that Mabel had found. One cow in the yard isn't bad but the whole herd running around can really tear up a yard. Trust me, it's happened before.
