Before I get to the bullseye discussion, here’s what we look like today in our very bitter cold temps.
And I finally put the notions shelf back on the wall – all cleaned up and spiffy again. Actually I just love to look at all these things as I’m cleaning them up.
And I haven’t forgotten that I’ll do the pincushions sometime this winter.
And these are still waiting for display.
This is what some of my circles look like.
Sorta pointy at top and bottom – lay them straight on the square and that little pointy part will end up in the seam. Do not measure this! I think someone quoted me as saying “just slap it down”. And that’s exactly what I mean.
So I cut more last night. I’m going to replace this old applique quilt on the landing with the new bright bullseye.
I’m experimenting with a smaller block. I cut the background squares 6″ x 6″ and the first circle 5″ x 5″. The cut out backs will be the second circle and there won’t be a third because it’s so small.
I am guilty of hoarding favorite fabrics until they’re so old that I don’t like them anymore – am I the only one who does this? It’s such a stupid thing to do so last night I cut up two hoarded charm packs for the 5″ circles. One was Chance of Flowers by Sandy Gervais and the other one was missing the paper with the name. Now I’ll be able to enjoy them.
So I need 4 bullseye blocks across and I’ll see how long I want it to hang. I love playing with these fabrics that I have never used. We all have one more week to complete Step 1. Will YOU be ready for Step 2?
Becky and I are getting our second Covid shot tomorrow – we’ve been warned that we might feel a bit under the weather – it will be Super Bowl Sunday and a good day to cozy up in front of the fireplace and TV.
Love to hear from all of you!
