I have been experimenting a bit with some alternate ideas for my setting squares for the Blogger Girls BOM. Here is a little peek at what I am thinking of doing. Not so many Square in a Square blocks, and more of a chain design.
I am also thinking of doing a diagonal set rather than a straight set.
Don't you love changing things up a bit? I plunged into this innovation a bit too quickly however, and realized when I was well into it that I could have strip pieced the strips with the green squares and cut sections of them rather than sewing each and every green square onto a strip. Sigh. Oh well. Guess my mind was on something else while I was cutting out all those strips and squares. Ack. Now I have lots of extra work for myself, but I can't do anything about it now.
I like the look of this alternate block and the piecing is easy, so I will just get on it and get the job done.
Thanks for all the handy tips on how I should deal with my naughty dog and his penchant for destroying all things belonging to little Eva. I am going to look into some indestructible dog balls for him, and when I replace her play balls, they will be kept way out of his reach. He needs more exercise, which many of you wise readers suggested. I just wish I had the time and energy to give him more of what he needs. I will make an effort to make what he needs more of a priority. Poor fellow, he just wants to be loved and paid attention to.
