I have been trying to get on with my table runner for the modern christmas table runner. I started off with completely the wrong fabric - it just didn;t look good. So last night and this evening I started again and was much happier with the fabric. I started to sew the middle block together:
Hmmm, this doesn;t look right - I have sewn the two outer blocks on the top row upside down. Unpick, start again:
Err, no, I don't think so!!
Got there in the end. I really like this block. My partner (and I hope I have got this right) seems to favour darker colours, but I didn;t want to go too dark. This big star will be flanked either side by wonky stars. Personally, I love the block, although the fabric is not really my thing, but I have read, and re-read my partners blog and am hoping I am in the right direction. Unfortunately, I appear to have ended up with a silent partner, so am just going to go with it!
By the way, I have Sheila to thank for my newly discovered love of paper piecing, if she hadn't got us to do it in the mystery quilt along, I don't think I would have ever tried it!
The weather here in this little south east corner has continued to be lovely, with the exception of today. Yesterday I was in a lovely part of Essex, near Sible Hedingham, where green fields and countryside abound. The sun was shining, I had three lovely schools to visit and everything was good. I had lunch sitting on a bench in the sunshine. I believe the weather for the weekend is set to be lovely too
