January 1st Progress
140 blocks, 37 triangles and 1 corner (!). 4256 pieces. Sorry for so many progress posts this past week. I like to have a snapshot of how it looks every 10ish blocks and it’s really fun to do this search and watch it change.
In case you’re wondering why I keep redrawing things… it’s really pretty simple.
1) I hate appliquéing and totally suck at it.
2) I hate hand-sewing.
3) I hate appliquéing so much that I really don’t care to practice and get any better at it.
4) I do not think sitting on the couch hand-sewing is relaxing. I’d rather scrub a toilet.
5) I’d rather have pieced blocks that look good than horribly appliquéd historically accurate blocks.
Sean is thinking right now as he reads this, “So, Emily, how do you really feel about appliqué?”
