through the ringer
Yeah. I totally put myself through the ringer when making this block.
It went like this: L-man was on the computer, so I thought, "I can totally do this without the instructions". Not so much. My first version had a nice big mountain in the center, since I sewed each piece together one at a time instead of by twos, as Audrie recommended in the instructions. I wish I would have gotten a photo. It was really quite comical.
I ended up using one piece of fabric from my stash in the block, can you spot it Audrie? For some reason, I thought you needed some fish heads. Which reminds me. Have you ever heard that song? "fish heads, fish heads. rolly poley fish heads. fish heads, fish heads. eat 'em up, YUM!" L-man swears I made it up, but I didn't! I need someone to help me prove him wrong, please?
p.s. I'll just come out now and apologize too Audrie, I pressed all my seams to one side. I should have read completely through the instructions BEFORE I started sewing the second and third time. I'm a total spaz. I know.
