One of those days......

After spending the last day and a half being both sick with bronchitis (still fighting it) and working on getting more commissioned garments ready to sew, I decided to get my BOM blocks made for August and September.    Was a good thought and eventually they both got made.....BUT it definitely was not a smooth process.  

The August block too three tries before it was successfully completed.  Completed block is supposed to be 12.5 inches unfinished.   Started working on the first pass and realized that I'd made the center square to finish at 8" instead of 4".   Ooops.....ok, so cut more squares with remaining fabric and then put everything together and realize that I didn't layout two of the the middle squares on the four sides. Which then totally threw off the pattern for the block.     Argh.....finished the block and put over on top of the orphan block tote.   Haven't decided if I want to keep this as a pattern or not tho.   that decision is for another day.

Then when I started on the block for September, I was making half square triangle blocks and realized that I'd sewed two pieces together with one of them upside down.   Thankfully easy enough to fix, but still frustrating.

Blocks are now up, and I'm going back to working on the commissioned sewing......at least it is going ok these days.  

Gratitudes:
1. Am starting to feel better thanks to the burst of steroids.

2. Cooler and dryer temps here have made the days nicer.
