Over at the Rainbow Scrappy Challenge, light blue is the color for the month. It is also time to consider layouts for blocks, count blocks and essentially get all ones ducks in a row. So to speak. For the origami cranes (or swans), I counted colors and direction and found myself low on right facing cranes. Since I had already made some light blue cranes, I decided to fill in some missing colors.

 Apparently, during my time away from sewing, all my skills migrated south. All six cranes were born with severed neck syndrome where the triangle at the base of the neck is sewn in the wrong direction. To make matters worse, I did not notice the severed necks until each crane was almost finished. Well, now they are finished...and so am I.

  1. Oh goody your cranes/swans are back and looking lovely. We obviously have similar issues with right and left facing blocks. Sorry to hear about their necks - pleased they're all finished.

  5. Severed neck syndrome must not be a serious affliction. I see no scar tissue so they must have some fine surgeon.
