I ran the pattern off on cardstock and then cut out the patterns and traced around them. If you decide to do it this way you won't need a light table and you won't have all that fuss and bother of moving things about while you trace.
Once I had the patterns run off on cardstock, I wrote on each piece exactly what I wanted to do with each one.
I laid the block on the ironing board and laid the ruler -- THIS IS THE TOP -- 7/8" from the top edge.
This was the quickest row I've done! I started on Friday and worked until it was time to cook supper. (My chef is not available at the moment so I must cook. I'm having trouble getting my head round this. I shall be glad when he is back in the kitchen.) I finished up on Saturday afternoon.
This is my row! Notice that centre mitt! He lost his partner...............its somewhere in Lachine.
Here are my 4 rows. I'm really pleased with the way this is turning out. Someone is going to be lucky to get this one. I'm thinking I may make tea-towels and put the penquins on for Christmas gifts. I really like them.
Thanks, Sindy. Another great row.
Talk to you tomorrow.
