Saturday’s Batiks

The day started off making a credit card holder for a friend:


I decided that since I had my batik fabrics out, I would work on the February Lucky Stars Block of the Month club by Don’t Call Me Betsy.

Paper piecing for me is slow and relaxing. It is something I do when I don’t want to have the pressure of performance and speed. So while I accomplished my goal in working slow and not pressured, I have little to show for it.

Other than this mess to clean up:

Time to clean and call it a day. I noticed I have a habit of defining a “good weekend” as when where I can claim, “I got a lot done.”  This will be a good weekend and I can say that without getting a lot done.

Did you get done what you had hoped today?

Enjoy the Journey, Jackie

    That does look like fun. I’m glad you find it relaxing. And you have such beautiful results. No pressure. It sounds like you really needed a day like this. That’s an accomplishment in itself.

      Thank you, It was a much needed day.

    I mega-love your star! I’m not comfortable with paper piecing.

      Thank you, paper piecing actually makes it easy. I’m not sure I would start with this block series if I didn’t know how to paper piece, but the directions are very detailed.
