Today was abigail's first day of summer vacation.
So we spread an old blanket under our river birch tree and watched the leaves shimmer in the sunlight.
When abigail became bored of listening to me talking about my reading and knitting we brought out the piggies, ella and lucy.
We fed them lettuce leaves left over from lunch.
Remy thought we were fattening them up so that he could have lunch.
Then one piggie went exploring...
And remy assured us that he would keep an eye on her!
After their walk, the two little piggies went home for a snack.
Abigail had her snack too.
I received a question regarding how to quickly tell which way the blocks need to be rotated and which side to piece next.
Answer: always sew onto the edge that has 3 fabrics exposed. For example, in the above photo all the blocks need to be placed on the next strip so that it is sewn to the BOTTOM ( where there are 3 fabrics exposed)
Here they are, placed correctly, onto the next strip.
Hope you're savoring these first days of summer.
