PLAY!: act 1, scene 3

I asked for some suggestions from you PLAYmates, and you were more than helpful. One of the suggestions that really appealed to me was making "wonky" log cabin blocks. I started by cutting lots of strips

and then began with an irregular 5-sided shape
From there, I just started adding strips
trimming as I went
kinda looks like a house, doesn't it?
et, first freehand scrap block!

I know, it seems a little silly to get excited by this, but it was fun to just grab and sew, not caring about the end result... I'm excited to try another one!

Shine on!

Shine on yourself girl! I love it. Those wonky loggy cabins are my favorite playthings. It looks fantastic.

A great block! I really like the different widths, including some really thin strips.

Whoo hoo! Can you feel the glee? Downloaded a book and picked up a beverage for a night of playing tomorrow; what a great way to spend a Friday night!
