In the Wind

We use the expression to suggest possibilities.

Blues blowing in the wind.

I commandeered the kitchen table to assemble the drunkards path blocks.

Lots of strip piecing

The original lay out of the blocks.  Can you spot the mistake?

Half the blocks are all stitched together exactly like this. I then stitched this half and assembled the drunkards path blocks. I held it up proudly for DH's approval. He responded "why is that block going a different direction? " I figured he was teasing; it's an on going joke. BUT no. If you spotted the mistake you will know there is a block flipped in the outer boarder.  O.K. some reverse stitching and back together.

Ta Da !!  now I'm thinking about what to do next.

I also spent some time hand sewing .

Still slowly working on my circles.

The slow stitching of this project gives me great pleasure.  I will just enjoy the journey.

I hope you are all enjoying your journeys.  Terry

Sometimes it needs an extra pair of eyes to spot these things, it does look good finished. Can't wait to see what you do with the circles

The pixies turn those blocks around when we're not looking, I'm sure of it. This top is really wonderful. Beautiful photo of it blowing in the wind.

I would let it be Terry. These blocks are just like you. They are tired of standing all in the roll, some just have to turn around the look the other way. Hope you keep them the way they wanted... hehe!

Maybe I need more coffee this morning as I can't seem to spot the mistake! Great blues in the top and your hand piecing sounds quite relaxing.
