To kill two birds with one stone….My work in progress this week is for more Madrona Road blocks…I need to do 9 before the 2nd week of May. I have one complete, the chess board block, these are the next two I am working on this week.
X and + Block (but different with the x being short and rounded ends…see the tiles posted here):

So, after a 3 am finish last night, I was ready for my first craft fair. It was exciting and we accomplished a lot over the 25 days…the table was full. It was a little slow traffic wise at the fair but all in all a good experience. I will definitely plan next time 🙂
