VISIT TO ANOTHER "CITY"
Block No. 1 of Tula Pink City's 100.............................
I have to say that I am not really a pictorial person after looking at this block for what seems
FOREVER!! I found it difficult to put together .(duh!! being a super "Verbal" person--not to mention my verbosity*, lol).
If you peek across the very top of the right hand page you can see that I taped little pieces of "MY" fabric choices in order to keep it straight!
At the very beginning we are told that the blocks will finish at 6.5" when put together--WELL,
so much for THAT! Mine are just able to be trimmed to 6".
Now either my cutting AND/OR
that danged 1/4" thingey are off or....or.....well--who knows--So, 99 others will have to be 6"
I am not repeating this one. Most likely it's something i did--surely it is....
I am challenging myself to figure the cutting instructions and the "putting together visuals" for the entire book's blocks. What would you do?
Stay tuned to see if I just shelve this into the UFO drawer or "MAKE" myself do it!! LOL
My Monet's City will be making a comeback during the Summer months--as I like to do hand sewing on our deck (now ice covered to the depth of about 6"!!) and sip iced tea and kind of wool gather....
the hexagons allow me to do that. Whereas, I can see that these blocks take intense concentration.
at least pour moi!! ;--000

P.S. what is it they say? "Nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there...???"
