This week I decided to hand piece this block, called Sorrows Of War. It would have taken me under five minutes in the sewing room but I wanted to be in the living room after the kids were in bed so I hand pieced it. There is something so relaxing about putting a needle and thread through some fabric. Sophie is waiting patiently to get brushed this morning so she is the model.
I also needed some new dish cloths last week and went searching for the correct yarn in the house. I found a little yellow, some green and white and a little more of the rainbow yarn. I now have about 8 inches of the rainbow yarn left and a new dish cloth to use in the kitchen. I don't think the dishes will mind!
Saturday I used my 40% off at Joanns Fabrics and got a 4 ounce of blue to make more. Not bad for $1.79. Now it is time to brush Sophie before taking the kids to school. Ahh. Blissful peace and quiet for 2.5 hours this morning. I can't wait.
