I was so enthused with the Granny Square blocks that some people have shown on their blogs that I thought I would get into the game with my favorite “Breath of Avignon”. I cracked open a new jelly roll of it and made some Grannies. I’m so enjoying this block and how easy it is as well as how complicated it looks that I’m going to do some more for a larger version. There were a few kinks and first time blunders but they came out looking pretty anyway and now that I have the hang of it there will be more. For me the trick was to make the outside light pieces a little larger so you can trim them up at the end.
Now for the construction pics. Today they took down the chimney on the old part of the house so that they can eventually take out the whole side of the old house and begin framing the new part. These guys are so fantastic it was such fun to watch them work. Nice guys too. Here’s a shot of the old chimney coming down. What a noise it made!
Back soon with more.
