My first thing yesterday was to try to make a 'button' for my blog so others could just grab it if they so desired. I found a tutorial here and I spent about 3 hours trying my best, but that was obviously not good enough and I still don't have a button. I then decided to go back to my Sunshine Rose Garden block. The pattern I downloaded seemed to be missing a section, but after talking to my friends on Monday we thought we had solved the problem so I decided to play.
|Fist two sections together.|
Now that bit went easy enough, so on to the next bit.
|Seems alright so far|
|Added the next section|
|Can you see what's going wrong|
|Close up of the bottom|
See, it just doesn't fit together nicely. Jen, did leave me a comment and told me the missing pattern piece is in the magazine. Its the July/August 2007 magazine and although I have looked on line it seems to be out of print now......not surprising really, I mean it is 5 years old. So I am going to go back to the drawing board on this one, bit of a challenge and all that stuff. I would have a go today, but I have another challenge that I need to attend to. My friends have decided to join this so I thought I would join them, and make a few. Now I am not saying I am going to make them all, but I might have a go at a couple. I am going to try to use scraps, but I find 'random' a bit of a challenged in itself so we will see how I get on.
Believe it or not, it's now time to eat........ good job I have already prepared some salad, just get it down my throat, and then off to sew.
