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? ) 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.
