In Between all the work - Bonnie EnProvence Mystery Clue #1 came out!! Yippee!! The men went Black Friday Shopping... and I started in on Clue #1
( before you give them too much grief - Carhartt Jackets were on sale, and mine is 22 years old, and Smooth Wire was on sale, and Hay tarps.... so you know - it was all manly stuff!)
As you know - Bonnie patterns are pretty scrappy, but she gave some cool options for this first step - so mine feels a little boring - but I am sure it will work out great in the end!!
So! There it is in all of its Glory - Clue #1
(PS - I'm linking to Kevin's EnProvence too - he and I are both doing it in Patriotics!!!)
And since it didn't take me as long as I had scheduled for - I started working on this!
My goal is 12 blocks - I am now up to 9 blocks
(maybe 10 by the time you read this, but I hadn't squared it up yet
so it doesn't count)
and yes - I am double Designing Walling !!
These are Chimney Sweep blocks
Every pattern I read had them in 2 7/8 inch strips
but I had a huge box of pre cute 2 1/2 inch strips -
so I modified the pattern a bit
You can find it in my Craftsy store ( for free)
if your interested
