Wake up call
Our new neighbor, C.C. Myers, starts pile driving at precisely 7:01 a.m. -- bang, bang, bang. The construction of the new Bethel Island bridge is scheduled to go on for 19 more months. We do need a new bridge and I don’t suppose they will be driving piles for the entire project period.
I knew right away when my eyes opened that I would make an alarm clock block for today.
If the numbers seem a little wonky, that’s because my early morning eyes saw them that way.
That really isn’t true; I am just learning to do the satin stitch on my Janome Jem. I have lots of practicing to do before I can sew nice straight lines and join up corners. It is good to learn new skills.
You can make a 4-inch paper pieced alarm clock block by clicking on the small graphic below. It will lead you to a foundation to print out for you own personal use. There is a guide for the numbers, too. I am sure your numbers will be much better than mine.
