Every year I always tried to do some sort of homemade gift for family and friends. I think I picked this up from my cousin Susie who always did a homemade ornament every Christmas.
I had no clue what half square triangles were or flying geese but I felt the need to pull this block off of Quilter's Cache and sit down to make 30 of these blocks to use as that years Christmas Gift. OMG, I KNOW my friends and family did the smile and nod thing and thought to themselves...is she kidding? Mike dutifully stained the dowels and drilled the holes.
This project DID get me through a tough time. My Grandpa died right before Thanksgiving and my dear dog Sherman died a week later. Yeah...lots of smiling and nodding from friends and family. I bet they were ready to put me in the funny farm!!!
Looking back, I can't help but dissolve into giggles......
