Started Starstruck today - paper-piecing... with one of my fave prints from Sturbridge Village by Judie Rothermel. So confused by paper-piecing again. Need to brush up. 10/11: trimmed down today.
Random: despite how god-awful sex & the city 2 was, it really really cheered me up today. Weather was awesome too - nice breeze blowing through the windows... Ahhhh... Looking forward to watching "Kathy Griffin: Emmy aftermath" & biggest loser season premiere...
9/21: finished today. Looooove it. Turned out great. Had to redo quite a few seams... Pain! But this is kind of a high stakes block since it's one of my faves... Kinda wonky on the back end but it really does look fine from the front. Can't wait to get a new phone so I can start taking pictures again...
Random: watched "something's gotta give" and the beginning of "pillow talk" - still a fave... Picked not one but two zukes today. It's a late summer miracle.
