This week...

I was waiting for Him Indoors to decide on a solid colour for his third union jack for the Jack Attack quilt, he has now decided on black (which I must order!)

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)

Your bee will be wonderful with Sarah at the helm. And all your projects are looking great.
