Gypsy Wife QAL - June Blocks

June was so busy!  Not with activities, but just house projects and all kinds of general life stuff - gardening, spray painting and redoing furniture while the weather is nice. 

I made the Crazy Anne block a while back when I was on a Gypsy Wife kick, but I just made the rest of this month's blocks today!  Luckily, Will took the nap of all naps this afternoon. 

Sam helped me pick out the fabrics for each block.  Some of his original combinations were a bit much for  me, but I think I only changed one fabric in each block.  I figured it would give me a fresh perspective on my fabric pull. 

I should have picked a better portion of the center print to cut.  I wasn't thinking about the aquas touching.  Meh. 

I was piecing on my Brother (which I used to do a lot) since my Juki is set up for quilting right now.  I don't know if it was that or trying to rush and get it done before Will woke up, but some of my points got cut off and a bit of extra trimming was needed.  Oh well.  Totally not going back to fix it.  I live by the motto "finished is better than perfect".  Not to say I don't try to do things right, but spending precious sewing time ripping apart a block and repressing and resewing for one point to get fixed . . . not high on my list of priorities these days. 

I adore this Crazy Anne block (even if the points aren't exactly right and they turn the wrong way).  She is a beaut. 

Well, I'm sitting here trying to think of something witty to write, but it's been a long day.  Church homecoming, Gypsy Wife piecing, a birthday celebration for my grandma, carefully cutting back drywall as part of our closet redo, and a current time of 11:13pm EDT, and this mama is ready for bed.  At least I can say I haven't fallen behind yet, and the blocks are almost halfway done!
