Here it is June. Might as well give a progress report on my patchwork activity at home.
Ta-da! 20 Pine Burr Blocks! I am finished with those!!! Whew! I think I was getting sloppy at the end because the last one turned out like a tent and I had to redo it... I don't think you can guess now which one is the sloppy one and I'm not telling! That was A LOT of hand sewing!!
And of course I've been plugging away on the lattice strips. I'm still making triangle strips but to alleviate some of the boredom, eh-hem, concentrated routine work, I've been putting the strips together into lattice pieces. At date I have 20 lattice pieces and I think I need 49 (or maybe it is 48... every time I count I come up with a different number.) And I still have about 20 triangle strips (two strips per piece) by my sewing machine so I may have passed my middle mark!
Now that my hand sewing is finished on the Pine Burr blocks I will move on to hand piecing the lattice corners. Two done... By my calculations I need 30. Sigh.
There are still a lot of sewing days ahead of me but I'm making progress!
