I was two months behind, meaning I had six blocks to make. One 6", four 12" and the mother of all mothers...one 18"! I'll get to that story a little bit later!
|6" - Star Quest|
Here's the yellow! I still don't know if it's enough yellow, but what are you gonna do this late in the game!!
Now Big Birtha and the back story! Naturally I saved the 18" block for the very last one. It's a good thing I did, because if I did this one first I'm sure I would still have five other incomplete blocks!
Saturday started with the coloring sheet of 'Kapow Star'. The name is exactly what my brain nearly did by the end of this one! I cut my fabric, numbered each stack, numbered each section on the coloring sheet, had to cut more fabric because I kept missing sections...mind blowing!!
And then the storm hit. It got very dark, very windy, very fast. Thunder, lightning, rain. And then...a huge boom!! And...the power went out...and everything stopped. Dinner. (which thankfully was done) Sewing. Kapow, was sidelined. The power went out at 4:30 pm and was out until after 1 am! Awww, those summer storms!
I picked it back up Sunday thinking the rest is a breeze. You know when you think you know how all the pieces should go together? You think you do, turns out you don't. The illustration was so confusing! The seam ripper and I had the best time...not! Eventually I finally figured out the puzzle and got it together. But man, the odds were stacked against me!
This is where it stands as of today!
Three more to go! The one on the right, the long skinny one.....I'm looking forward to the simplicity of that one!
