Day 2

Today has been a day of joy and frustration, some sewing has been done and LOTS of unsewing has been done, some geocaches were found and others remained hidden, we saw some beautiful countryside
the edge of the golf course

I have started working on the Celestial stars blocks, this is the first one, and it took me ages to get the points nearly meeting.....the main fabric is orange, but looks pink here, I also didn't read the pattern properly so it is different to the original!!

this is one of the house residents, we have had several hello and pretty boy converstaions......I found out later it is a girl!! 
this is my second attempt at a Celestial Star  block this one had given me the heebegeebies!!!!!! I got them all finished and then found I have sewn two the wrong way on the papers so I had to make two more, then I managed to cut off two points, so guess what I am doing this morning????  Yep, another two blocks need to be made. 


reject blocks!!!!
So I am off to have a third attempt at these two blocks!!
Happy sewing.

At least you are in a lovely environment sewing with others. Sewing doesn't always go to plan does it?

LOL at least you are in a beautiful environment to get frustrated in. I think I would have thrown the block in the bin! I admire your tenacity. Pass some on to me please. Enjoy the remainder of your retreat.

Hope you are having fun Sue and not letting the stitching and unstitching bother you too much. Looks like a very interesting place
