WOW; I really do like this place. It is alot of fun but I won't get my quilts done for Christmas If I don't get off. I only get here maybe 2 or 3 times a week and then try to read all the post. Even my DH like to read with me; we both learn alot also. Later Girlfriends.
I may need the 12 step program to get off the board also. I usually wake up at 8 and surf until my husband wakes up as not to wake him. When I read on the board, I also like to go the sites and blogs listed within the posts. So this morning, the youtube with 5 minute blocks comes up....TROUBLE. I take my iPad to the sewing room and watch the video again, pause as needed. No measurements were given in video as she is trying to sell her book....no problem, I'll just cut some rectangles and figure it out. After THREE HOURS, I will post my success story that will go into the UFO pile or (painter) taped on the wall.
Picture 1 four blocks come together to make one ( not quite square but easy to fix )
Picture 2 cut one part off, it was too short, sew it back on ( not a mistake if I don't tell :) )
Picture 3 after yellow fabric sewn down like I had done with Mexican Star quilt ( in UFO pile)
Now I'm too tired to work on my embroidery project ;0
And now that I learned from the QB TODAY to post pictures from iPad.....the trimmings of the 5 minute block can be the border or its own individual UFO ;)
To Postal packin' mama and Gabby Abby - I DID actually finish a wall hanging that I was making as a commission. and I DID pick out fabric for a new Bow Tucks for myself.........but the room is still a mess. So today, 10/17 I'm headed back in there. Wish me luck!
