I wanted to catch up on Splendid Sampler blocks since we were coming up on block # 60. And then I saw that particular one was embroidery. I knew it was a losing battle to get that done before Sunday’s block came out. I’m making headway on it but it will be another day or two before I’m done. I don’t know about anyone else but I like to do hand sewing in the evening and spend the available time I have during daylight to be at the machine. The lighting isn’t as good in the sewing room and yes, I could probably put a lamp in there but I haven’t. I printed this out on Sulky’s fabri-solv which really helps.
I have been spending the rest of my sewing time on the purple star quilt. I hope to be done with the 3rd of 5 rows by early next week. It just depends on how much time I spend on tomorrow’s Splendid Sampler block, which I saw has been released. It’s traditional piecing so that should go pretty quickly.
I also bought these snippers to clip threads. They scare me! They are seriously sharp! Sadly they are made for right-handed people but since I won’t be cutting fabric with them it should be all right.

You’re so good about doing the embroidery blocks! I just can’t seem to muster any enthusiasm for it :-/
It’s definitely the ones I’m least enthused about. I think I enjoy something like that when there isn’t another block coming out 3-4 days later!
I have the same “snippers” and love them! Bought them when I worked downtown LA in the garment district/industry. You will not be sorry since they are wonderful!
Wow! That’s a great recommedation! I used them this afternoon and really like them.
Have a few band-aids handy just in case.
That’s a really good idea! Something tells me I’ll need one…or two or more!
