I know, I know, you're saying, "But you were already on Step Two, weren't you?" Well, yes. This afternoon I finished sewing and pressing and trimming the last batch of the 72 little purple string blocks. The only thing that I haven't done is to pull the paper off the back, so they still look a little curly. I like to leave the papers on until the last minute before using them. That way their shape stays true. So here they are! Hooray!
As for CyberMonday, I was pretty good. But when Keepsake offered 20% off, I did order one more package of "Chocolate & Creams" 2 1/2" strips to go with the one I already owned from this past summer's sale. I was so pleased with the quality and the fact that they did NOT have pinked edges which I personally dislike. I want to use these in one of those cool prairie braid quilts. There is the plain braid or the Texas braid with the red square accent and I'm not at all sure which design I prefer. So I's jus' cogitatin'! We'll see, and that's final! LOL!
