OH! While I still have deadlines, none of them are super urgent, and I let everything slide yesterday. There was a problem with that, though. I didn't know what to do! It was bizarre to be as free as that!
Don't worry - I made good use of my time. We had a super time during our Monday sewing session. Lots of fun and laughter, and I was entertained while working on the applique for my current UFO. I almost feel like I shouldn't share with you what happened. But I don't care -- here is what I accomplished.
I had prepped part of this block when we were on our mini-retreat, but I was missing some fabric, so I had to wait until I had access to the stash. When I traced the designs, I did NOT reverse them, so the applique pattern was useless for placement. However, when I started to put this block together, I realized that I could not do it without the placement plan. I had to dig out the lightbox and flip the pattern over, and then it was a breeze.

So that block got completed. My goal this month is to get the applique pieces on four blocks, and now one of four is complete!
My original plan yesterday was to make the one block and then turn on the sewing machine. But I was having so much fun (did I just say that?) that I decided to forge ahead. This block was mostly prepped, but again, I had been missing some fabrics, so I dug out the missing fabrics and VOILA -- the second block got completed as well.
