Sorta! My computer, she is borken, and Mr. Yazoo is still slowly fixing her. (Even though I work in IT, I make Mr. Yazoo fix our home computers. Hah! Can I say that it’s like how chefs usually eat tv dinners at home? Or is that bad since I’m no IT chef? :D) It’s a pain getting pictures off our camera with any of the other computers, but I finally did it because my Piece Bee block is due and I didn’t want my bee-mate to worry. Plus, I wanted to show off that I mailed it off a whole day before the end of the month! Booyah.

So this month’s theme was tropical fishies, which I must say is an evil, evil theme. (Sorry, Lynne! :} ) It did force me to make something I never ever ever never would have attempted on my own, though. Yay, personal growth?! I made a humuhumunukunukuapua’a, and I was so glad that Mr. Yazoo suggested it because they’re surprisingly angular. Yay!

As you can see, I’m still bad at planning out how my backgrounds should come out. I spend a ton of time making my initial drawing, then I spend a little time trying to draw my sewing lines, and then I get impatient and just cut up my paper and draw lines right before I sew, which is why the background looks all crazy. Also, when people ask for untrimmed blocks, boy do I leave them untrimmed! This is how it looks, zoomed out. Heh, heh, heh.

And here’s my quickie wibbly-wobbly siggy block. It’s in the mail, yo!

  1. I’ve been wondering why you’ve been so quiet! Your zoomed out pic made me giggle. Good job on the humu!

  2. ROFL, that is seriously untrimmed! I start by drawing myself a boundary square not to draw out of to contain my backgrounds, now I feel so boring… 😉

    Glad you haven’t dropped off the face of the earth too, I was getting worried!

  3. That fish is so cool! And the zoomed out shot is hilarious. Completely looks like something I would do! Glad to hear you are ok!

  4. Omg, this is outstanding!
