BOM#5

Here is Judy's block #5. It makes a great addition to my collection. I can hardly wait for the finished product. I had trouble with this one though. A lot of frog stitches. Something did not fit right. I will have to be more carefull when I cut and make sure to keep a 1/4 inch seam. I did turn a corner though, untill recently I would have just sewn it together and not cared about the points. Maybe I'll make another to prove to myself that I can.


Here is a pair of pants I cut up to make another X Bag. I included my foot in the photo for reference. I wear a whopping size 11. Look how much fabric you can get out of a pair of second hand jeans!

I went to the gym today. 30 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of weights. So far so good, activity every day this week. Last night after work one of the girls in the office and I walked on the Dragoon Gulch trail. Nice walk.

This block took a lot of careful concentration to get all the parts turned the right direction. It is the first one that went together smoothly for me! I think I'm getting better with that 16th inch measurement.
I tried to e-mail a reply to you but it bounced back. I'm not a guild member as yet. My good friend Linda is very active but is off on a vacation. Maybe I'll come with her one of these times soon.

Your neighbor up the hill, Julie

Tamara, I love the colours you have used - they really look great. Can't wait to see your next one.
