Today's block is called Sawtooth Star, according to the calender anyway. I don't think it looks very toothy, but I don't make the rules. I used the orangy/pink batik for the background again. I figure there has to be at least 12 star block in the calender and if I make them all out of some kind of purple and this batik I can get a pretty cute quilt when I'm done. Plus, I don't have any other background fabric and I have 2 or 3 yds of the batik, LOL! This block is 12.5" square, like it should be!
I revised last night's block a little. I decided I wasn't happy with the weirdo size it was and I didn't want to have to cate to it later on (afterall, what makes it so special??). Mom suggested I put some wonky borders on it, and I did. I am much happier now that it is 12.5" like it should be.
Nothing else much happening today. We're watching The Polar Express. I fed my 3yr old chocolate chip pancakes with syrup on them for breakfast. He hasn't stopped moving. Upon request I need to channel my inner Miley and come up with a Hannah Montana-esque bag. Almost makes me a little sick to think the term "Rock star" in the same train of thought. A "Rock Star" is someone like... Steven Tyler, Keith Richards, Chad Kroger, Ozzy, Pink...not Hannah Montana. Bleh. LOL!! Thank God my children are too little for this craze but I am sure there will be others.
