I should learn how to read

Pictures are good but I really should learn how to read.  Heck it's not that big a deal - reading I mean.  We all learned how way back when and now I just don't seem to be doing it that well.

I mean I joined another Bee on Flickr.  I love Bees and there was one place left on this one so asked.  I joined over a month late and my body has just not been very co-operative so I hadn't sewed anything and you know me .. well I hope you do.  Because my mantra is that unless I do what I'm supposed to be doing I will not allow myself to do anything else.  

Easy it was because it was the Granny Block Bee.  I went and looked at what each Queen wanted, and there are two Queens each month so that was 4 blocks.  So what did dummy here do?  Instead of looking at the photos AND reading what the Queens wanted I just looked at the pictures.  One of the Queens wanted Autumn (Fall) looking blocks and I made these after looking at the pictures (please excuse awful picture taking - I'm REALLY bad at that too):

So these were right.  I was off to a good start.  Then I made the other two without reading instructions because it would have been so much easier on me if I had.  And I made these:

I so should have looked at what the lovely Kelli actually wanted.  I was almost right but not right so I have to re-do them.  So off upstairs to my sewing room now to re-do them and then I'll be a happy bunny.

See you soon

  2. Ooops, that's the kind of thing i do, skip over the details to dive right in!

  3. Love your granny bee blocks Patti! I see that we have lots in common.. Sugar Block Club, Jack Attack, For the Birds blog hop coming up.. and now your x and + bee. :) I just popped in to see if there's button for the bee, and I see it now. Off to add it to my blog. Hope you're having a great week. I'm printing off the tutorial for the block right now so I can start playing with some fabric for the May queens. :)


I absolutely LOVE it when you leave a comment and I read each and every comment and try to reply to you all.
