PMT - HRT - HST
I now accept that these are all unavoidable stages in the life cycle of a sewing woman.
I'm sure I'm a little greyer and a little older since I decided to bite the bullet and confront my fear of the Half Square Triangle.
I was so inspired by Suz's wonderful block over at PatchworknPlay, that finally ...
and after a fair bit of Grr! and Ack! ... but, I cannot deny, also quite a lot of pleasure ....
... we have ...
A real, live HST Block -
My first (other than some awful disasters in the past!)
And finally I've done something with some white in it! Huzzah!!
(actually it's a very yummy unbleached calico)
It helps that I was using Echino's new yummy lightweights - they're just so soft and buttery and sew like a dream .... I got the fabric online from The Eternal Maker ... They're in the UK! Yay!
I really do love the fact that it's so perfectly spring/summery
I also took no risks and used my walking foot to chain piece LOL!
