Two Puzzlers to Donate

It’s been a hectic month in my studio (and elsewhere), so this is all I could make. They were fun to construct, thanks to Sophie’s wonderful...

Strings on the Wing

I mailed string blocks to Lori and Margaret today — and they are all out of the U.S., so may take a while. I’m sorry about the delay in getting them to you, but hope you will enjoy using them to make something...

Red Hot Hearts

Red Hot Hearts

I made these hearts from my ridiculously profuse red stash — and they didn’t make much of a dent in it. The project reminded me that I am number-challenged. I really ended up with ten hearts, but I guess one will morph into a pot-holder. Thanks, Sophie, for a really happy block this...

And, by the way, they are very SMALL...

Nine Fine Barn Doors

Nine Fine Barn Doors

I was able to complete the full quota this month. We are having an endless summer here in Michigan, so the beach keeps beckoning and the water is perfect for swimming. But it was fun to make a bunch of these barn door blocks — and this time I’ll put them into the drawing for a chance to win. Thanks, Sophie, for another enjoyable...
