Hi there! How's it going? I see lots of Christmas trees popping up all over, are you ready? I haven't done a thing, except enjoy everyone elses decorations! There's still time though!
I have a couple of in progress projects you know, but right now I'm waiting on fabric. In the mean time I'm trying to get motivated to start another project, but I'm not sure what I want to work on. I'm trying hard to find things to take pictures and blog about besides my view of the tv for Law and Order time, or the vacuum or the grocers parking lot. So I got a brilliant idea that I'd make some potholders. Last summer I made a potholder using Amy's great tutorial and I was pretty pleased how it turned out.
Being overly confident I forged ahead to make another. However, I didn't really read past the dimensions and that was the first of many horrible mistakes. So bad, that the resulting potholder is barely fit for human use, let along viewing. Kind of like in the horror movies when something goes terribly wrong with a cloning experiment and there's just a blob laying there. Lets just hush up that experiment.
Enter Lee's great hexagon log cabin block tutorial. I used my tablet to go to and from the cutting table when working on this project, as I'm a little challenged visually when it comes to the angles and keeping things even. I started with a smaller center hexagon, I used my Go! Baby to cut my hexes.
I stopped and grabbed a photo while there was still some light. I'll finish this one up and try for another. Then I'll have a pair. It's super fun.
Ok, that's what I worked on yesterday. After my trip to Target in the pouring rain. But OMG RAIN. Couldn't be better.
