Snowy Sew Day
Last October I was in a 9 patch swap that Barb of Fun With Barb hosted. I have 200 - 3 1/2" nine patches. I have been letting them sit until an idea of how to put them together comes to me.
I took them with me to our retreat 2 weeks ago and started sewing them together. I should have brought my sketch so I would remember how I was setting them. I sewed them all wrong and was not unsewing them.
So now I am putting them together totally different than the original plan. I even made 52 more so it would be a good size. It will measure up at 63" x 72" a perfect size to use for a nap!
The more I looked at the "new" design on my design board, the more I liked the simplicity of it.
These are all I have left to sew together into a 9" block. I will finish them up tonight, because....
it is snowing.....Right now we have a little over 8" and it hasn't stopped yet. My husband just left for the night to go out and plow so I will have the whole evening to myself.
What is it about a snowy day that makes you want to drink hot tea and eat 50 cookies? I love the name of this one.
I will finish this tonight. Not my usual genre but I did like it. Did you read it?
