I was working on the sewing room this afternoon and getting very frustrated (what else is new) when I came upon some small leftover blocks and some 5 in squares that just seemed to belong together. Since I did not feel I was making much progress, I sat down and started in on some scrappy 4 patches and then added the blocks in between. I kind of liked it but it needed to be bigger - so added the strips. I think I will add another 5 inch sashing all around to make it a bit bigger. This will be one of my Foster Kid gifts for this year. Will make # 5 and I think I have enough blocks to make another similar to this one as it has kind of grown on me. You don't think it's because doing this sewing is more fun than cleaning do you?
