shattered glass blocks and the other three bee-mates were making Little Dresses for Africa. I've made these simple dresses as a service project at a Girl Scout camp. They're an easy and concrete way to help little girls living in challenging conditions.
I always have a tough time deciding what to sew off site, so I stuck to small projects. I finished Block 10 (Hermosa Beach) of Toes in the Sand. This one's got partial seams, but really they weren't as tough as I've built them up to be.
Machingers and they really do work for reducing neck and shoulder strain. A sew-in wouldn't be complete without a trip to our LQS, so Q-A and I dropped in. Since I was in need of Kona Steel, we headed right to the Kona aisle. Look what they had!
And Sunday's quilty goodness? Block 12 (Big Sur)! The last of Toes in the Sand. Once I've got the background fabric in hand, I can start piecing the top.
tutorial, though once you read it, you'll see you probably don't need it!
