so in the meantime I have been making a few more Kaleidoscope blocks.
It was raining really hard to day so I had to hang them on the airer in the conservatory for a picture! There are more than those pictured, I'm up to 10 blocks now plus 2 that I paper pieced (an idea which I gave up on) which are slightly smaller, maybe I could use them on the back...
Don't look too closely, the points aren't great!
No progress yet on any more Super Mario blocks... :-(
And finally, here is the lovely piece of lace I bought in Bruge. I have hung it in the dining room window which I face when sewing, which faces the side of my neighbours house - such an interesting view! Hopefully you can just about make it out!
Oh and I joined my first bee! Sarah over at Sew Me is organising a few of us to make churn dash blocks for a Siblings Together quilt. For those of us that couldn't commit to a whole quilt but who wanted to take part this was such a great idea, and there might still be spaces left if anyone would like to contribute. I'm quite excited about this, I have been thinking of joining a bee for a while but am anxious about my ability to keep up, make the trickier blocks and the costs involved etc., but I can certainly commit to a couple of churn dash blocks for such a good cause!
Right, I'm off to order that black fabric, have a glass of wine and watch Deadliest Catch. :o)
