The sun came out on Sunday, so gardening and dog walking took priority over sewing. I'd planned to get at it after dinner, but the motivation was just not there. I'm realizing it's good to have some busy-work no-brainer tasks set aside for days and times like that. So I cut out the applique piece for the DJ block. after doing so, I understood why I should have made the freezer paper template the size of the finished piece, not the piece-plus-hem. Then the extra edges could have been folded over onto the template. Oh well. This simple shape should be ok as it is.
