I have had a really productive few days and got a few things ticked off my list.
1st are my FQR sample swaps. I signed up do to cushions. This was mainly because I wasn't sure what I would do with three pincushions, 3 bags, 3.... until I had a chat with Susan - and then the light bulb came on and I realised I had it all wrong!! Anyway, I am happy to do cushions, I can try out new blocks and I can't really go wrong with a 16" square! I have two so far:
I am really pleased with how these have turned out. I just need to decide on a third - and maybe find another colour other than blue!
I have also got Lynz's June Hipbee block done. She sent us some gorgeous solids and requested a 'drunk love' log cabin type block with a bit of our own fabric thrown in
I was really dreading doing this block as it's something I haven't tried before and I am a very symmetrical type of person, but I really enjoyed doing this.
I also had a play around with my Bee a Brit stingy blocks
This is going to look awesome - not all the blocks are in the picture, I couldn't get them all in. I am just waiting for a couple more, and need to make 2 additional blocks and then I can start on the sashing between the blocks.
Back to work for me tomorrow. I really needed this week off, it has been so nice not to feel constantly tired. And I have managed a whole heap of garden and household jobs so I can go back to work without all that hanging over me!
