T01.Australian Pines

10/28/11... Hmmm just noticed something about this block. Am I the last? Haha... Well, I will defn. Have to redo as I am all about pine trees and this for some reason seems to be violating a fundamental truth of tree hood. That of having a central trunk vs. um, negative space??

Oy, this took some doing. Now it's done and looks great but even with all the extra I left on it it's 1/8" too short. Hmmm. Not sure what happened there. But anyhoo, now I have one under my belt. I had to undo about 4-5 seams. Still struggling a bit with the paper piecing technique. Cutting scraps a little small maybe. I'm using a narrow glue stick to help stabilize things instead of pins/tape but need to see how other people are doing it.

Random: sex & the city. season 1, eps 1-8ish... I like that Carrie Bradshaw. Does she remain likable? and omg mr. big. *sigh* #betterlatetothepartythannever?
