FINALLY! I finally started my Storm at Sea pattern. Of course I had it figured out what I was going to do but you know me...all that changed.
I am still doing the blues with a splash of yellow. I had ordered the templates and books but it just isn't sitting right with my brain. So I changed HOW I was going to do it. Today I decided why not try two things at once. I haven't done this pattern before so why not do a method I've SELDOM done before? Seldom = once and I never finished it. With all that being said, I gathered up my courage and headed to my video specialist -- YouTube.
There I found a video by Teresa DownUnder and a link to the paper templates. Since I had recently bought another printer, I was all set to get started. It only took me 10 minutes before I remembered why I didn't stick to paper piecing. My mind was made up though and I would make it through part of what I needed. I looked at my pattern to see what I wanted to start on. I chose the border because I needed 16 of those blocks and they were all the same using only two blocks. I did three blocks and will call it quits...for today. It's my day off and I am going out tonight so I need to get ready.
Here are what my three blocks look like. In between these blocks will be a square block of a yellow center and the cream outside. I hope I have enough fabric!
On another note, this weekend I tried a cinnamon roll casserole. I ate it but I doubt that I will make it again. I like the cinnamon rolls made regularly just as well if not better. If you like French Toast, you might like it. I could taste the eggs a bit too much. So think of making the cinnamon rolls in a pan (cutting up the rolls) and blending eggs, cinnamon, and maple syrup over it and baking it. When it comes out put the icing on it as normal.
That's it for this report. I'll let you know as I progress on my SAS (Storm at Sea).
