Sara and I made mini design boards for our Farmer's Wife blocks yesterday. We found a tutorial on Lori Holt's blog Bee In My Bonnet. Lori explains how to do it way better than I can, so do check out her Mini Design Board tutorial. I love her philosophy, "If you are going to make it, then make it cute". I think Sara and I need to make a few more of these before ours are as cute as Lori's, but never mind. We found new ways to make a mess with a glue gun, that is for sure!
The idea behind making a mini design board, just so you know, is to have a surface to lay out your block components, make sure everything is oriented properly, and then sew.
Every day we have a new arts and crafts project while we wait for Baby E, who is sinking lower and lower into Sara's pelvic cavity by the minute.
Sara's fabric, Clermont Farms, by Minick and Simpson for Moda arrived, and she is ready to start making her blocks!
For another time filler, we went to see the new Woody Allen movie, Midnight in Paris, and loved it! This movie is like no other Woody Allen movie you have seen, so if you think you don't care for him, do give this one a try. The music alone will win you over!
