Maybe it is a hemisphere thing? - Building Blocks Tuesday

Have you ever tried to make excuses for yourself just not paying attention?  Take a look at this snail trail block for Hayley (Mrs. Pickles Garden) in the We Bee Learning Bee.

We Bee Learning March

Looks OK, right?  Well, my snail trail is spinning the wrong way.  When I jotted down the instructions for the block from Jess's tutorial at The Elven Garden, I didn't pay close attention to which way the trail was spinning.  I even drew a little picture -  spinning the wrong way.

Maybe it is a hemisphere thing?  I mean, when you flush a toilet in Australia, the water goes down and around counter-clockwise instead of clockwise like it does here in the Northern Hemisphere, right?  So does that mean that I really belong in Australia (or somewhere else in the Southern Hemisphere)?  Or is Jess in the wrong hemisphere?  Who knows!

So while Olivia is home with an earache, I will be unpicking these today and putting them together the right way.

So what have you been working on this week?

Link up your fabulous blocks.  You put a lot of hard work into them - show them off!  This free linky will stay open for a whole week.  And spread the word!

Quilter in the Closet


1) Please link up only to the page in your blog showing your wonderful blocks, not just the blog homepage.  Flickr pictures are also OK.
2) Make sure to put your blog name as the description so people know where they are going or the name of your block!
3) Please grab my button and post it in your blog post or sidebar.
4) Visit other linky participants!

Thanks for reading,
