It has been fun pulling out the fabrics and finding fabrics to fussy cut for the centers of the blocks. I love the horses in the block above. I am slowly cutting into the small amount I have because I love it so much.
It makes me happy that I waited for so long to start putting it together because I didn't have some of these center fabrics at the beginning of last year.
The last block is paper pieced. I need to add eyes and a nose to the little fox, but I can't decide if I want to try embroidery or add buttons. It is such a cute little pattern, and I found it here. I had to rip it apart,a and resew it so many times because I stink at paper piecing. I never cut the fabric quite right, but I love what you can do with it. I have a couple more blocks that I want to try, so I will keep trying!
I have also been sick over the last couple of weeks, but I am starting to feel better. I had strep throat, and then I had a bad reaction to the antibiotics which led to me being sick again with what seemed like food poisoning or the stomach flu-not fun! I am hoping that with spring coming soon, all the cold germs will go away for the rest of this school year.
I hope everyone had a relaxing weekend!
