Remedial Math & White Christmas

It went like this:

18 inch blocks needed- they were easy. Done.
12 inch blocks needed-Done
6 inch blocks needed. It took me a while but I made all 36 needed.

I start to assemble. OOPS. Everyone knows I can't count. I needed 27 of the 12 inch and I'd only made 18. Back to the sewing machine yesterday.

ALL blocks are now made. The 6 inch blocks are sewn together in their pairs and next I'll sew the pairs to the 18 original 12 inch blocks.

I'm bound and determined to have this into a top by the end of the year. I'm going to use up large scraps and piece the back but I have till mid-to late January to get that done...when are we meeting tirane?

We had a WHITE Christmas here in Dallas! Here is a picture taken of the pond behind our house.

And here is a picture of my niece Raegan in the apron I made her for Christmas. She is going to be 3 in March. She has a kitchen set she received last Christmas that she plays with every day.
And this year she received more appliances and foods to go with it. Martha, Sandra, Rachael, and Paula need to watch out in 15 years or so...

I used the Apron pattern from "Sewing for Dummies" by Simplicity. It's definitely a keeper and I'll make more of these in the future.

I just love that apron! She looks very happy with it!

Don't feel bad, I can't count either most times when I am trying to sew! :)
