...and here is my first block.
I chose not to use charm packs but rather
some yardage from my stash... just the two fabrics above.
The plaid is on the back.
Also... being the non-conformist I am,
I cut my original squares 6.5 inches.
The square measures 6 inches finished
before the crochet rounds.
This is just my practice block.
My Monday Night Sew Group figures we will
each have a cute mug rug... as in one each...
OR, we will finish a couple blocks and have
a personal place mat... one also.
My DD Kate has helped each of us with the crochet.
She re-wrote directions and re-drafted the pattern for me.
And we decided to use Thermore® Ultra-Thin Batting
to give some body to the squares.
And we are not alone in our frustration of sorts...
So... we don't feel quite so badly
about having only completed one block.
Maybe those with more crochet experience will be more successful.
AND a little quicker than our group!
We are NOT giving up, though! ... not yet, anyway.
