Sewing and Cheetos

Last night I started to work on Angela's block.  After sewing the first seam - I realized it wasn't lined up right. One of the problem with doing these blocks is having to figure out where to line up the pieces.

Having to rip out the first seam was NOT good. 

So, I grabbed my daughter's
I don't even like these.  They are not as cheesy as normal Cheetos.  But what's a girl to do when she is totally frustrated and on the very first seam that she has sewn!!

If I could have, I would have been like this

only with the good kind of Cheetos.  And I would have eaten very one of them!!

So after sitting on the couch for a while, crunching on Styrofoam tasting puffcorn, I finally went back to the block and tried again.

And look what I did?

Half of the block!!  WhooHoo!!  Then I realized I had not counted all the little black triangles correctly.  I counted 5 per 1/4 of the block and actually there are 7.  So tonight I'll be cutting out a few more triangles unless I go shopping for better Cheetos.  



  1. Your blog hates me. I couldn't find this post last night, although it was on my list. Now it doesn't want me to comment. One last try.
    So do you prefer original soft cheetos, or hard crunchy ones? I really like the crunchy ones the best, but will eat either!

  2. You are so funny. Love it. Way to keep at it!
