As you recall, yesterday I made my virgin attempt to make a Pineapple block using Gyleen Fitgerald's "Trash 2 Treasures" book and ruler. Yes I admit I skimmed the directions; attempted the block, swore at it a bit, figure it out myself, THEN went back and read the book. I do things bass-ackwards that way.
I have two out of 64 done. Not something I'm going to get done in a weekend. Lots of up-and-down to the ironing board which they say is a good thing.
