Another block of Safe Haven...

I've been working on Christmas gifts, embroidering a few things, making lists, checking them twice.... you know the drill. :)

While my embroidery machine was working on a tea towel, I was working on a block for Safe Haven.

I knew something was wrong with this block before I pressed this portion.... duh!

This is much better.

And here's the whole block. These blocks are 20 inches square, which seems ginormous after a week's worth of Sylvia's Bridal Sampler blocks!!

I have lots of left overs each month. This BOM is several years old. Embarrassingly old.... but boy, I love how much fabric they included. Jacque called dibs on my left-overs from this one, and as you can see, she'll likely have enough to make the exact same set of blocks, with only an occasional dip into her stash for anything she's short on.

I have no idea what I am trying to do here, but I'm playing with some of Karen and my favorite cartoon characters.... and I'm having a ball trying to figure it all out.

Isn't that what it's all about!?!
