I Really Need to Go to Bed

I did not have a wonderful day today.  Turns out I have a referral for a root canal. Yuck! So. Tonight I had a little sewing therapy.  I had a pile of scrappy 16-patches I've been putting together in between other things.  Tonight I added corners to make them snowball blocks.

They don't look too impressive here.

But, doesn't it look better now with sashing pinned in place and another snowball block with a bold piece of fabric?  I think this could well grow into something pretty.

I have more fabric lined up waiting to be cut and "snowballed".

I've really been inspired by the books I showed the other day.  I can't say that I'm making anything in either of the books, they are just a jumping off point for me, and that spark is what we all need, isn't it, to fire our creativity.

Now, I really do need to go to bed.  I have to call the root canal guy for an appointment in the morning.  Or I should say, this morning.

Hugs and kisses,

Oh no, root canals are not the best way to spend a day but thank goodness we have the option to save a tooth, right? I've had four, I think, and I "feel your pain". I hope things go smoothly and you're out of the dentist chair asap. I love your scrappy patches, inspires me to do the same. Best wishes! xo

What a fun idea to use 16-patches in snowball blocks -- I love it! Sorry about the root canal -- hope it goes well when the time comes!
