Happy Monday to Everyone!!
Can you believe we are on Week 18
It made me think of something I read last year.
Basically, if you work on something a little every day,
or every week, eventually it gets done.
Sometimes we think we have to have a big block of time, and then we will get whatever it is done.
Often, it never does.
So every day....little by little ladies!
Now the story...
I was a secretary at age 10!
That's what I thought then, but of course today I am so thankful that that ole Rancher dad of mine,
knew a few more things than I did.
We had to walk home from school,
put in our 3 hours, before heading back home for supper at the ranch with dad.
We learned to file, work the mail room, send out direct mail, work with Grandma in the parts department,
answer phones, you name it.
By 16 I was doing payroll for dad's 4 companies, making my own money which was a good thing,
because he didn't believe in handing us anything.Even though he could have.
I saved up $850 bucks, and bought my first car all on my own. A 1971 Chevy Caprice.
I could beat my bro's Camero in a 1/4 mile race.
Yeah...got in trouble for that too!
So now down to business.
I love the way this block turned out.
A Cut(12) 1½" X 1½" Squares (Green/Red Print)
B Cut (16) 1½" X 1½" Squares(Yellow Check)
C Cut (12) 1½" X 1½" Squares (Red)
D Cut (12) 1½" X 1½" Squares (Red and White Polka Dot)
E Cut (1) 2½" X 2½" Squares (Red Print)
Make your Half Square Triangle Units as follows:
(4) A/C Units
(4) A/D Units
(4) A/B Units
(4) C/B Units
(8) B/D Units
To layout the block the best way to keep these units straight is to use a post-it note and mark them:
Sew Rows 1 and 2 together.
Sew Rows 3 and 4 together.
Sew Rows 5 and 6 together.
Sew these rows together:
Now sew horizontal rows together:
And there you have it!
Another Block done!!
In closing, a pic of baby Kash...
he's growing up...
Happy Little Boy!
Have a wonderful week my friends.
