Two Down...

Another long day. Got up early this morning and did the laundry before I got Hunter up for school. After he got on the bus, Richard got a call from a friend that wanted him to go help get a big load of hay. He milked the goats before he left, so I strained it and put it all away. After I got all of that cleaned up, I started cleaning again! Today I still work mostly on the kitchen, cleaning out some cabinets and the windows, plus my regular daily chores.
~~~~~~~~~~


I took a little break and made a dresden plate out of some of the wedges that I cut yesterday. Not sure what I will use for the centers yet.
After that, I went out to the new house and tinkered around out there. So much dust upstairs from the sanding so wasn't any sense in trying to sweep that until he is finished up there.
~~~~~~~~~~


Came back in and put on supper, BBQ ribs, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob and cornbread. While I was watching supper I worked on another dresden plate. So far today I have made two of them. I'm not in a rush, I just want to enjoy the process. Most of the blocks will probably look the same because I picked out the fabrics that I wanted to use out of my scrap bin and I cut it up until there wasn't anymore of it. So some fabrics I may have in every block, I just wanted to use up the scraps and be done with them.

Hopefully tomorrow I will have one or two more finished. We will have to wait and see...

Your Dresden plates look great, I did the same thing used a lot of scraps and yep repeated fabrics.

Love the Dresden blocks. Just wondering what size you are cutting with your ruler. I have one and don't want the finished blocks to be too big. If you don't mind sharing what size pieces you are cutting and how big the finished blocks will be.

Thanks

What about it if you have the same fabric, I think it is a great idea of using your scraps!
