I think I've gotten to the place where I can start laying out the blocks.
I'm so glad Bonnie explained how to lay these out. It was confusing just looking at the picture. But she said start with 4 rows across and 4 rows down.
Then start filling in the rest. When I'm looking at these in person I can't see if any need to be moved around. I like taking a snap shot and then it is easier to let my eyes relax and just see the colors and values.
After that I have more blocks and strips to add.
I promised myself I would work on this every single day. And I have.
This last week I sewed up the sashing strips. Now I know for me, a Bonnie Hunter Mystery is gonna take much longer than the January reveal date.
I have realized that I need a pincushion! (Lots of pinning needed still for Frolic.) I always just take them in a out of the little plastic box. I used to have a Granny pin cushion, but I had to be so careful to stick pins in only certain places. Looking online I found this little Mouse on Pinterest.

I thought this would be perfect - nice and flat to stick pins in anywhere. I figured it would only take about an hour to stitch up.
Well...I have my supplies gathered and it's already taken 1/2 hour to decide on fabrics!
I'll be back later - I'm off to hand stitch this little guy.
What? You want to see the fabric?
Have fun sewing on your projects.
