Well, we have about 6" of snow on the ground from today, and it looks like we're in for several more hours of snow to come.
The little kiddos are with Daddy and the two older girls have finished with school. One is out riding the four wheeler and the other one is dreaming of horses! In fact, she's making up songs about how much she thinks of horses. It's SO cute and irritating at the same time, lol.
I'm working on Part 3 of Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll.
Let me start by apologizing if I offend anyone. This is my blog and the opinions expressed here are mine alone.
Oh My Gosh, I HATE using the paper backing to do these blocks.
Part 3 is making 8½" string blocks, and Bonnie suggests cutting pages from phone books to use as a foundation. (I used paper piecing paper because my husband has this incredibly weird aversion to cutting up phone books. I SWARE, we have phone books that are as old as our marriage!)
I have tried this method a couple of times and I hated it then, but I thought, "I'm going to follow the instructions. Maybe there's something to this that I don't get yet." But, there's not. Using a paper foundation is just not for me.
After trying a couple, I just started making the blocks without the foundation and it's working better.
I'm using lots of starch (thanks to Harriet, he he he).
Is anyone else working in Part 3? How's it going for you?
