For this month's dGS blocks, Amanda, the leader of our Imagine circle chose these improv chevrons using the tutorial from Six White Horses. I've seen several of these blocks being made lately and think they are so interesting, but honestly wasn't looking forward to making one myself. I really like them, but they just look like they would take a long time. And they did. But I had fun making them, and if you are someone who gets to sew without too many interruptions, they shouldn't take nearly as long as they did for me.
I love the palette she chose. White, light grey, blue, yellow, and green. She wanted soft shades of these colors, which was a fun change from the brightness I'm usually drawn to.
I was determined to get my bee blocks done early this month so I wouldn't feel guilty about making some fun things for the baby with the rest of my sewing time. I got a few fun new prints from the sale section of Bloomerie Fabrics the other day to make some little dresses and diaper covers and I can't wait to get started on them!
And check out our first real harvest from the garden...
It isn't technically the first harvest, but it is the first produce that has made it into the house. The kids have been snacking on broccoli and radishes from the garden for a couple of weeks and I've used some of my herbs. It has been so hot and dry here that my cilantro and radishes are already bolting and the broccoli hasn't produced too much, but everything else is looking good so far.
