I heard from Island Batik that I was accepted as an Ambassador again for 2017, YEAH!! Can hardly wait until I get the new box of fabrics, it's gonna be another awesome year.
Yesterday I picked up my kindergarten grandson from school at noon as it was only a half day of school. He was pretty excited to be a 'car rider' for the first time. I planned to have him help me sort my bright string bin. We got started with purple, orange and aqua. By having them sorted I thought I would be able to whip through my RSC17 blocks much quicker. Like I said we started...and then he wanted to know what I was making, how I made it and how the sewing machine worked, inquisitive mind you know:) So I showed him one of my long string blocks and showed him how I made it. A couple hours later we had these 6 blocks done. I thought I would work on all aqua ones since February's color is aqua, but he had other ideas, LOL He wanted one of every color, who am I to stop him, haha. He loved picking out the next string each time, sitting beside me the whole time and watching and asking questions! Usually the door on my sewing room is closed when the boys are over-too many sharp objects for little hands you know. So it mostly a mystery to them as to what is behind that closed door!
Here is our accomplishment... six blocks pieced with phone book pages. I taped two of the smaller pages together to get the long block. He said to me that he wanted to do this again next time he comes over 😊 These will be my RSC17 blocks.
He also made me a Valentine in school that morning! My own heart was so happy yesterday:-)
