Oh these days have been fun and hard at the same time... just how the life is, right? The hard part: everyone still has a cold in this home (going to be 10 days or so). And it seems to be part of the routine. The fun part: I could see a bunch of friends last weekend, like a miracle I was strong enough to handle a lot of things (make food, clean the house, go up and down on the stairs many, uncountable times). As soon as the home was empty again, everyone including my daughter and hubby, even the dog ( it also sneezes sometimes) threw ourselves on the bed just hoping for better days...
So, I've finished this block when things were quiet here, but had my computer not cooperating at all to post it before.
This is the second block from Wishes Quilt Along. I did write down some observations while making this block. First of all, it is like you're making four blocks, mini ones to get the big one, final size 14,5" inches. It took more time cutting and piecing than the first block of this series. If I'm not wrong there are 24 pieces in each of the four mini blocks, total of 96 pieces to make one single block. If you ask me, I don't think I'll be making this block again, at least not in this size. However, would be fun making one of those mini blocks as a single block and larger!
Update: I just added Windmill block on Wip Wednesday at Freshly Pieced blog by Lee. I'm so excited to have one more opportunity to push myself weekly and show what I've been doing during the week.
And here some pics from about 10 days ago, before the cold and all the stuff I told on the top... some fun in the park, and some rare pics of myself during this pregnancy (32 weeks along).
