Midget handwork Sunday

Brace yourself Angela and Jill!!!!!

Yes...the Midgets made their appearance again today----after a one-year vacation!

I have NO IDEA what prompted me to stop mid-seam with my Christmas Goose piecing to pull out the midget blocks and take a peek at what the next few blocks were.  But, .... a little kick of motivation from SOMEWHERE had me prepping three blocks for applique.  LOTS of red!


I even completed the 20th block!;  the one that stopped me in my tracks last summer.
And you'll see----I altered it.  There was NO WAY this baby was going to get finished with those saw teeth in place.  Nuh-uh!

Great job! I altered that block, too. What a pain it was for such a small block!

Great job on the block and love how you modified it. It will be fun to have someone else working on the midgets with us.
