I've been having fun working on this
vintage applique pattern,
The Noah and Matilda album.
The pattern is available from
I had assumed I would have lots of
time to stitch while
this little guy took long
multiple naps during the day.
Does that look like a sleepy baby?
So without those long blocks of time,
I've been slowly (emphasize slowly)
working on the 4 blocks for the month of April.
It's interesting how differently people might
approach a project
when time seems to be limited.
Do you do the hardest blocks first,
so you can sprint to the end.
Or do the easiest ones first so it might
feel like your making progress quickly?
Or even still,
mix it up.
my approach is to start with hardest and
finish with easiest.
This time I did the reverse,
I went from
I wanted to see some progress,
no matter how slowly.
This block doesn't appear too hard.
That leaves block #4
which for me, will be the hardest, and
most time consuming block,
But wait there's more,
little mini circles
that represent grapes. (39, I believe)
Don't they look
like little tiny red spider mites that
are ready to attack a houseplant.
Everyone has a different perspective
on how to approach a project,
especially one with varying degrees of difficulty.
If I were starting April's blocks at this point,
I probably would have done my grapes first.
Because they would be done by now!
This is a great BOM
and the blocks are going to be
beautiful and awesome when they are done.
Until Next Time-
