Work on it Wednesday

Panic time. It's the end of the month and I haven't started on a single block for my swaps. So, guess what I'll be doing today. Thankfully I only have to make 4 blocks and none are super complicated. I had a time with the flying geese blocks last month. I will have to make more of them so that I improve my skill of working with triangles. Anyways, I vow not to wait so long next month, lol. Yeah, right. What would be the fun of working on them right away?
I also have the Ice Cream dress cut out for O. to make as her first day of school outfit. I have some patterns that are similar to it, but I finally broke down and purchased this pattern to save myself the trouble of having to tweak it. I've used her patterns before and they really turn out nicely. Look for a first day a school picture sporting this dress. O picked out the fabric herself. It's from Riley Blake and paired with some Kaufman I had in my stash, super cute.
