I really love the blocks this month, Ayumi has really outdone herself (again!).
I think the beater and mixing bowl are my favorite. I love that little pyrex-looking measuring cup. I'm also glad I finally got to use some of that text print from Madrona Road. I do love the story it tells, and am trying to find a project to use a big piece of it so that I can read the story in its entirety.
So obviously this one has some problems! I think I may have mentioned all my foundation paper pieced blocks are mirror image because I sew on the opposite side of the paper as the rest of the world? Yep, not usually a big deal until you have letters to worry about. I pieced the chocolate portion first, so I would have had to start over to have "MIL" correct. I just laughed when I realized my mistake. Sometimes it is the best thing to do. Good thing I am not a perfectionist!
In case you are wondering, it is a very fancy chocolate bar that someone brought me back from a far away land and that word is not even English. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Here are all my blocks so far - four months worth. I can't wait to see what Ayumi has in store for November!
