Right now the temperature is 97 degrees -- but the heat index is 107 degrees. You can't even breathe outside -- so -- I had an excuse to stay inside and work on another FWQAL block! Since this is my "fun time", I have to justify it -- otherwise I feel guilty. I know I am not alone in this, so I won't elaborate on it. Anyhoo, I did run errands this morning, and then I came home and did my chores -- so I deserve the fun! Yay! Here is my first block with HST (half square triangles). They were so easy to do because of Lori Holt's tutorial. I did make a mistake and cut out the first group of squares too small -- note to self -- look at your notes! :-) But, I found another piece of fabric that was similar to what I originally planned for those squares and recut them, so no harm done. I also realized after I was all done that my stitch length setting was too long. Other than that, this block was fun -- and I have gained a teeny bit of confidence -- so I am moving on to find the next block in the book that has HST!
