Rhubarb starting again!
And snowdrops are out!
And, yes, I have done a little sewing too!
The February hipbee block was chosen by Di, She chose a really pretty block, and sent us all we needed, including comprehensive instructions.
Now, I have to say the instructions were extremely good, and clear. I read them twice before I started in on her beautiful fabric. I am fairly careful cutting, as I also do dressmaking, and two right sleeves when you need one left and one right really does not work. You do have to check and cut correctly.
So, can you explain why I had a brainstorm, and sewed a section wrong. Four times over? and did not realise until I had irrevocably chopped it, and was trying to make the piecing work?
Luckily I was able to get replacement fabric, and carefully unpick the triangles on the end, and resew correctly!
You see those two pieces on the left there? Top one is correct, lower one is the wrong way round!
Thank goodness it was sortable! no, I know that is not English, but it works for me!
so once I had my four pieces like this, we were sailing!
and the finished block, Ok, not perfect, but I think it will have to do!
