More Crosses Created

Well made enough crosses to get up on my board.  For now I've just sorta been making them randomly - whatever fabric my fingers fell on - that's the one I used.  As you can see, I ended up with more dark than light.  So I'll need to add more light blocks tomorrow.  They really are a little mindless to make and a little addicting since I'm using my favorite colors and they end up looking all pretty.

Still this isn't anywhere near done - just wanted to get up two days of sewing. One thing about it right now - it seems so busy!!  No quiet places to rest your eye.  I'm sure I'll have to address that.  Also I'm thinkin' its going to need more yellow in the darker blocks to help move your eye around the piece.  The new added light blocks though will help with that too!

Its so much different doing a class at home like this - I mean - everyone still expects me to get the car inspected, do the shopping, make dinner etc. etc. etc.  Geesh - you'd think Janome would come out with a model of sewing machine that came with its own shirtless houseboy. . . sighhhhhhhh . . . .  Guess I'll have to write them with that suggestion.

hey, I'm with you babe. I have a Husqvarna so I could use a nice strapping Swede. Svelt Swede. Lots of blonde hair Swede......well, you know what I mean.
glen: oh, and the blocks are fab-u-lous. How big are they (approx?)

LOL!!! So since my Janome is from Japan - that means that mine should be a samurai or maybe a stealth ninja? The blocks are relatively little - 4.5 by 6.5 unfinished.

Looks like progress! I agree, that more lighter and more yellow will add to it nicely.

You already have a ninja houseboy..........so quiet you can't hear him........and he doesn't speak English, so has no idea you need regular stuff done :) He's in the closet waiting to surprise you.

If you find a machine that comes with a houseboy or valet let me know. I want one too!
