I said I was going to make 3 of each of these blocks from Temecula Quilt Company (see yesterdays post) and I will – now that this one is done maybe the next two will be easy? One can hope.
Here is after I got going – put my hand next to it so you can see the tiny pieces
After a couple little mistakes and some ripping I ended up with this for the center – not quite matched up in places – but there you go I ripped enough.
In the end it looked like this – the center is just a little out of whack but there you go, I’m not wasting time on it – two more and hopefully the centers will be matched up better – finished is 4 inches big!
This is what I have so far for this project – a name for this one? Not sure right now I think I will wait and see what comes week after week.
And four more to add to Granny’s Gone Crazy.
Last night more oregano was cut for the dehydrator, and some sage – I put the sage in overnight with the oregano rinsed and left to dry on open racks on top of the countertop that way the moisture will be out of them this morning and they won’t take 24 hours in the dehydrator – I dried some about two weeks ago and made the mistake of rinsing and then turning on the dehydrator and thought it would be done over night – mistake – it took 24 hours. Has to have time to dry out a little first when you need to rinse the dirt off. Also picked the first large tomato and 2 cherry tomatoes – the cherry tomatoes will be getting ready faster now- I have no other large tomatoes near the stage of picking right now.
I am making more waffles this morning and will take a photo and type up the recipe for Wednesdays post – you will get your oatmeal serving in this recipe.
I don’t mention the sales on AccuQuilt all that much as they are not good about letting the affiliates know when there is a sale like Craftsy is – I was looking the other day and saw a sale going on — I have been planning on buying some strip dies – yes strips should be easy for most to cut – but I have horrible cutting skills, my rulers shifts even with the little things under it to hold it in place – I think the problem lays with my hands and wrist from arthritis so I took this opportunity to order. Because items in my order were more than $49.99 each I didn’t get one free but I did get the 25% off plus my points that I had saved. They ship really fast and supposed to arrive on Wednesday! It will be nice to actually have strips that are straight. If you are looking for dies now is a good time to buy – offer good until the end of the month.
