However to the north of us in the mid US was lots of tornado action and several lost lives in the storms and it's aftermath... so in the meantime I have tried to focus on making a proper patchwork square that is square!
See how lopsided this one turned out! So I sent a shout out to my quilty friends and Wendy came to my rescue and offered to help me out via facebook chat and pics to make a block together.. she lives in Australia :)
So I finally started using my metal seam guide I harvested from one of the sewing machines we sold and tried it out...
First step is to cut Accurately!..
I also learned to stop and measure as I go THIS WAS EPIC for me :) Super WHOOP!
here.. was Priceless to me! WHOOP!
If I had only had all that learning earlier.... maybe this block wouldn't have been pregnant! lol
But i still think my nametag turned out lovely! Crooked and all! lol
|Finished but not washed :)|

My final WHOOP is how well we are doing with our Ebay selling! Right now we have 2 great sewing machines (both vintage as we only deal with vintage)
& the Gypsy I used quite a bit will be going up this weekend! If you are a scrapbooker or cardmaker or papercrafter of any kind check out my auctions! I had a massive inventory and am clearing it out!
Here's hoping you have a blessed weekend! Thanks for taking time to visit me :)
