This evening, eager to get back to my sewing machine for a quick 'fix', the timely instructions for the next blocks of the Mystery quiltalong were ready and waiting, thank you Sheila!
A pair of Ohio Stars...
These were lovely to make (unlike the horror of my paper-pieced effort), and I got them cut, sewn, trimmed and pieced in about an hour and a half, which is pretty good going for me!
I am regretting the background choice, but I think I have gone too far now to start again - it's a fiddle to piece, and is a bit too busy - but I really am treating this as a great learning project. Sheila's instructions are brilliant, and I have attempted and learnt so much so far, so I am not going to beat myself up about the fabric!
Today I also handed wee monkey over to his new owner, bored ballet brother, who was thrilled! It's nice to know he has gone to a good home and will be loved. Phew!
