Welp… it’s been awhile. In my real life I’m an office manager for a small software company. The last few months have been a bit crazy with the company (in a good way) so that plus summer activities have been eating up my time. I’m also participating in a a swap on SpriteStitch and starting to work on my gifts. However, we can’t post pictures of anything until after our recipient receives it, to avoid spoilers.
I’ve made a little progress on Star Gazing. I finished block 6 (in the group shop, 6 is Binary Stars, in the bottom right). I also started to assemble the top. These are blocks 1, 2, 5, and 6. Attaching the blocks is almost entirely partially seams, so it’s a little slow going.
Block 6 was paper pieced. Protip: When doing paper piecing, when you trim your fabric, move the fabric that you want to keep out of the way so you don’t cut through it.
I also constructed blocks 8 (Regulus) and 9 (Southern Star).
I have 2 blocks left (for those of you counting, block 7 is complete. It just didn’t get its photo taken) and then some assembly work. I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel for Star Gazing.
