Block #40 of Just Takes Two is called “Buckeye Beauty.”  It was a doozey to put together because of the set-in seams but I’m happy with the end result.

Those set in side pieces went in better than I thought they would.  Just have to go slow and deliberately to get the starting and stopping places in correct form.  However, at this point I am ready for some mindless sewing so I may whip out a few more of the strip piecing sheets on used dryer sheets.

On a different note, I had to go to the Emergency Room because of nausea and vomiting relating to my Crohn’s disease.  After the IV fluids, a shot for nausea and a shot for pain I am back on track to feeling better.  Solid foods are out of the question until late Thursday or early Friday.  By then I will be sick to death of Jell-O, broth, and iced tea.

Sew until next time,
