While organizing my storage closet, I found this box of Kansas Troubles scraps. I was so excited because I was trying to figure out how to do the Craftsy Block of the Month without spending any money.
That was one of my New Years promises to Darren...I wouldn't spend any money on NEW projects until I finish the UFOs that are hiding around the house.
I found a baggie of light & dark triangles.
I chained them. I pressed them. I organized them by color.
Now I have a bunch of small (maybe 2") half-square triangles.
So, with that done, I started my January blocks.
...The Asterisk Block...
...The Wonky Pound Sign Block...
I'm not a big fan of the slash and stitch method...I'm just a little too "Type A" and it makes me crazy when I can't get everything to line up.
I also make a few mini design boards. These are so easy and I found them at A Bee In My Bonnet. I made 6 10" boards and 2 15" boards. I will finish them later this week, I hope. It's been a busy day around here...and it's a good thing Darren & the kids brought me Krispy Kreme donuts!
