according to Duke. Prior Proper Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance. This is a phrase Scott’s Dad was fond of saying. Recently, I failed. Bunny Hill posted a NEW Snowbound block on Saturday!!! : ) The sixth in Anne Sutton’s 2010 free on-line BOM series. I knew it. I was ALL excited about it!!! I was ready. My printer was not. : / It was out of ink.
So, I started my sixth Snowbound block today. What’s that? A day late and a dollar short. Yeh, something like that. I’ll finish my block tomorrow, but here’s how it’s looking so far…
I wanted to mention something I have learned with these blocks. I am not doing any of the stitching by hand. It is ALL machine work. Last year, when doing the ATAT BOM from Anne, I had a bit of difficulty getting my “embroidery” stitches just right. So, for instance, I color in the carrot nose with a Pigma marker before I satin stitch it by machine. This helps me direct my stitches, and if they aren’t close enough no background fabric will show through. I also keep all the materials for this project on a tray that I slide out monthly. Perhaps I should include a cartridge of printer ink…?!
