My WISP.....

I had to ask a fellow blogger what a WISP was and I then realised I have one. I suppose this is strange seeing I'm a newbie but it definately falls in the category.


I have made 10 though I had convinced myself I had made 11, of these courthouse steps 12" blocks. I dove straight in cutting and assembling over 3 full days with feelings ranging from excitment to omg will this never end. HaHaHa. My mind began to wonder to other treasures I could make and so it has been put on a shelf but the offending evidence (remaining strips of material) are lined up on my machine cover.
In a former life I left nothing unfinished. Colleagues often rang for advice knowing how anal I was about completing work and conquering new procedures. How surprised they would be!

The pattern says there is 14 more to go, oh.......

Thankyou to the loverlies who sent me links to fix my no replies problem. I have changed some settings but alas only receive replies from people in my 'circle' on google. So, for all the other replies people send to my comments, please dont think I am ignoring them.

Enjoy your weekends, we are taking our beautiful 3yr old GD to the circus. My hubbie loves the circus.

Well done Sharyn!!! Your "Courthous Steps" is going to be beautiful. That why we all do more than one project....so we don't get too bored. Log cabin is one of my favourite designs. Have fun at the circus and tell Mr T not to eat to much fairy floss.

The journey of a thousand miles starts with the remaining 14 blocks but I totally hear your pain about how long that sometimes seems to take. Your blocks look lovely.

I made a quilt a couple of years ago that seemed to take so long I named it The Flying Dutchman.

Popped over from our mutual friend Michelle's blog . Nice to meet you Sharyn.
