This week I knew I was sewing soooooo I went and signed up at the last minute.
Can you say: procrastinista? Sure, I knew you could.
I can't show the completed blocks, because that would ruin the surprise, but I can show you some of the progress.......
We are all making Dresdens using Chateau Rouge by French General. Yummmmmm
I used five prints from each colorway
80 platelettes . Okay, blades...what ev..
The half way point...and boy, is there shrinkage.
Here's how I chose to do the "points".
Look how much smaller the sewn one is!
The blades are still the same length, but the seam allowance really made a difference.
I still have to mount them on the backing and do the embroidered center.
Can't wait to see what I finally embroider!
I best get to gettin cuz these puppies go out in Wednesday's mail and I got a houseful of family showing up from Sunday 'til Tuesday............... EEEEEK!
