Then there is the block lotto. Oh boy. This gal has been having trouble with the blog setting (this one included) as I can't always get into the page to write the darn thing. Adding pics is another challenge! I am hoping to use this whole experience as a learning type thing, and by years end to be proficient in the use of these things. Time will tell, right now I am giving myself a grade of C, and that is generous.
So, having finally gotten it together for Junes Block Lotto, I mailed out my blocks to a new friend in the Sultanate of Oman. Yup, I too had to look it up in Google Maps, feeling like a high school drop out or something. Jo is originally from the UK, but living now in Oman, and will be receiving the 6 missing blocks from June.
Julys challenge is something called Liberated Checkerboard. Let me start by saying that I didn't feel at all liberated! But, they look pretty good for a funky type block. It was a real challenge for me, as I really prefer intricate piecing, but I think that whoever wins all the blocks will have a beautiful, and unique quilt.
Well, that's all for now. With any luck I will remember how to get back in here next month, and it won't be as long between posts! Keep cool, and keep on stitching!
