Along with the end of the year accounting, I've been walking in the park....literally since I'm working on Walk in the Park, a free pattern by Kim Diehl.
As the date for my Let's Make a Diehl class at In Between Stitches gets closer, I'll post a tutorial on how I make the blocks. They go together so quickly especially since I make my half-square triangles 8 at a time. My tutorial is located HERE.
I make 8 HST, then make two blocks. I rotate the HST to change up the look of the blocks.
Then I put a frame around the blocks.
The frames really change the look of the blocks.
I have six more blocks waiting in the wings on my design wall. The fabric that I'm using is called Sunday Best by Kim Diehl. Working with the combinations of color has been lots of fun. The fabric will be available at In Between Stitches soon. I'm loving it.
We are finally getting some REAL rain in California. We haven't seen winter storms like this in four years. When we see a patch of blue sky in the distance, we grab Mazey's leash and head outside so she can run. If she can't run outside, she runs inside and drives us crazy with her high activity level. I have discovered that I can't hold the flashlight, umbrella and the leash at the same time. I need a coal miner's hat to light our way! Maybe I need to train her to sleep in until the sun comes up.....what a concept.
For those of you who follow my blog, know that my sister Gail is my right hand helper with everything. She is Thelma to my Louise. She would appreciates good thoughts sent her way as her husband has been in and out of the hospital since December 9th. It has been a tough month for both of them.
