I don't know why I let these snowball blocks intimidate me, but I did. I think I got freaked out by the measurements of the white corner squares - they all ended in 7/8" and now that I write it I'm all, "Yeah? And?" Oh who knows what my problem was. Tell me I'm not the only one who psychs herself out unnecessarily! In fact I did it this past week at work when I had to give a little presentation (Fund Accounting - scintillating!) and I got all Impostor Syndrome on myself. Of COURSE it went well.
Anyway, it's done and Christina's quilt is going to be awesome - Joel Dewberry's Modern Meadow is really lovely in person.
Speaking of lovely - here's my little one doing her best Blue Steel in today's Fairy get-up. She was REALLY happy with the various pieces of this ensemble which began with pyjamas as a base, and included a playsilk for her hair (dyed at home with food colouring - couldn't have been easier!), the $4 tutu I found her at a thrift shop and her hallowe'en bumble bee wings. Fun!!
what a cutie!!ReplyDelete
That intimidation you speak of is EXACTLY why I'm doing project 52!! I decided I'll never grow if I keep being such a wuss :D This week was zips (and ended up being button holes as well). I can't believe how easy they are - and to think I've been putting off trying them for how long!!??
those blocks look fabulous! oh I'm a real good procrastinator if I'm unsure what I'm doing, or think something's going to be tough! I just swallow hard and jump in these days, and usually find out that my mis-givings were mis-placed!ReplyDelete
That's one cute little fairy ballarina you have there!
(tomorrow night is nametag night!)
oh right. nametag.ReplyDelete
Love the snowballs, could just pinch those fairy cheeks.
What a sweetie! I love having boys but I sure would love a fairy costume once in while. Adorable:)ReplyDelete
Your snowball block looks great! I totally know what you mean about putting off a challenging block - my pickle dish block sat in pieces for months last year!ReplyDelete
Your daughter looks great in her ensemble! Reminds me of my daughter who wore her bee costume with a superhero cape and piglet ears to become "Super Bee" last week.
Those snowball blocks are awesome! They look great!ReplyDelete
