Seriously, is it fall already? I'm still spinning wondering what happened to my life over the summer. Let me start first with my latest bee block. Can you guess what kind of block was asked for? Yep WONKY!
Ugh, it hurts to post this. Mostly because Bailey asked
that we not trim the block as she would do
that herself to make it fit with her project.
(But, please just let me just crop it up a bit
and straighten out those edges.)
And because WONKY is just not my favorite style.
I think I mentioned it before but my brain has a very
hard time with asymmetric design and randomness.
This is the 3rd project since June where I was asked
to make a WONKY block. And as I was sewing this one
(trying to follow a pattern, or at least a guideline), the thought occurred
to me how WONKY my LIFE has been since June!
Events, circumstances, plans, hopes...have just not lined up the way
it played out in my head. I made a major job change and had plans for a move I'd been anticipating for a long time. As life would have it, the job has had its ups and downs (although seems ot be leveling out finally) and my Oregon move had to be postponed until Spring. It was originally scheduled for this weekend : (
I'm a bit disappointed but realized the twists and turns, however jagged, will turn out just right in the end. And I'll eventually get to where I wanna be. I'm happy with that.
Just like my latest WONKY block!
Believe it or not, I actually kind of enjoyed working on it.
And I do love the stained glass/mosaic effect it ended up having!
Pretty fabric Bailey chose too!
Still, fingers crossed, I'm done with WONKY for awhile.
P.S. No offense to all the WONKY lovers out there!
