Be ... a Teacher

For June the Sugar Block Club theme is, be ... a teacher.  Well, check. That I do daily, well for one more week then a break until summer school starts. Although the call was for people to go out of their comfort zone to teach a new skill to someone, I just really like teaching. No matter the skill or topic. Now I have one week to try teaching something out of my normal! 


Here is the color pull for June's block. This one came together easy and was fun to make. No stressful paper piecing or uncomfortable techniques out of my realm of ability. Although it looks super complicated, that is a deception!




All the blocks are looking so pretty together. I have enjoyed laying them out each month to see how the group changes with the addition of each block. Halfway done :)

Today is also my birthday ... Friday the 13th, this hasn't happened since I graduated high school. Hopefully my superstition doesn't get the best of me today!  Last night my roommate made me a giraffe cake and I got together with some peeps.  The evidence is below, pretty cute right?


Sew long for now,

  4. Happy birthday! What a gorgeous block you made, too. I admit--it looks difficult to me. I'm comfortable with the most complicated paper piecing pattern, but I am still a newbie at these traditionally pieced block arrangements. I love your color combination, too! I have been making almost entirely turquoise, magenta. black & white projects lately, and I"m trying to choose a completely different color palette for my next project. I'm stuck, though!

  5. Fabulous cake! Your blocks are looking really great together. I am curious to find out what you decide is outside your normal comfort zone to teach. :)

  9. Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you Chels, happy birthday to you! (Singing on someone's blog, has to be the best place....I'm sure it sounds better than in real life as I'm no singer). Anyway Chels, I really do hope you have a super special day. PS. Love how those blocks are shaping up...they're so pretty together....

  11. Your cake made me LOL!
    What a sweet room mate! She/he put lots of fun details into your cake - I especially like the false lashes and the leaves. Oh, and the chocolate "patches"!
    Happy birthday!!! :-)
