Black and White Appliances
Apparently, the secret to productive embroidery time is to get up really early in the morning and start with the fiddly parts so that I can get through them before I fully realize what I'm doing.
I got the cord of the telephone done. We had a telephone similar to this one (ours had buttons, otherwise the shape and style were the same.) I had to give up on it when it stopped ringing, but while it worked it was my favorite phone ever. You could actually hear it from across the house! That's why I replaced our cordless phone with the old one. My last cell phone had a ring tone that sounded just like it, which was wonderful unless I was watching old movies or Perry Mason reruns.
With this block, I started with the fiddly stuff -- the knobs and screen and speakers. The whole thing was done before I had a chance to get bored with it. This is the block that convinced me to buy the others. My family owned an appliance store when I was growing up and I love the look of old television sets -- although this one is way before my time.
Now that I've got all four blocks done, it's time to start piecing. I think I've got a good idea to tie it all together, if I can make the math work.
