The MisAdventures Begin......

 Let the MisAdventures Begin......

 Easter Saturday...


Today I started yet another set of blocks, I'm giving the Block of the Month a rest because the Modern Dresden is driving me up the wall.  I made my own template and I think I was lulled into a false sense of security by the fact that the Traditional Dresden and the Drunkard's Path blocks laid down perfectly, first time, no messing around.  This one? it's a total mess I've narrowed, unpicked, re-sewn, but still nothing!  Then I see in the questions section I'm not alone, and it seems that the template for the Modern is actually wrong, so I'm looking a buying yet another ruler-  Kerching- so, before I give in forever and use only half of the plate, I gave myself a little rest and decided to have a go at a paper pieced 'Spinning Star' or 'Laced Star' depending on where you look at it.  I know, I can hear what you're saying to yourself " a rest?"  "a break?"  "is she barmy?" lol, still as hard as it is, I managed to create something.  I'll post more and I''ll tart this site up a bit, just as soon as I learn how to do it.  I'm a bit intimidated by it all to tell the truth.

 I'm sending this photo to Kim at My Go Go Life, who is an awesome quilter, and a generous teacher, who has some GREAT tutorials on her site, and who runs a give-away each Saturday, so pop over to Sewjo Saturday and have a look at the fabulous work she does.
