I was eager to stitch up the HST's for Clue 4 for the QOV QAL!All 48 blocks made in no time.In no time at all,
I had it all stitched up and put in the finished bag.
to the tropical table runner!I made this the width of the fabric and 18" wide.
I drew out the pattern pieces for the bird house
in cardboard for a template to use again and again.
Once the in-house chores were finished,
I headed out with the new pattern pieces
to begin on the bird house.
I sanded the pallet wood scraps,
so I could draw my pieces on the wood,
and then I cut them out using the scroll saw.
All of the pieces had their final sanding on the band sander.
(do you know if you hang a fingernail over the side
of the board you are sanding
that it will take that fingernail right down really quickly?!?!)
I had the pieces cut out and then sorted them for assembly.
But I couldn't for the life of me, cut the right angle for the roof--i
t measures at a 80* angle
and I couldn't figure out how to cut it.
My attempts resulted in a shorter piece than I liked--
you've heard the
"'I've cut it twice and it's still too short" joke, right?
So I left it for another day....
it was time for pizza anyways.
