Sports Day was, and shall remain, cancelled this year due to a water-logged playing field; I have mixed feelings about that.
Mum's quilt is all sandwiched but 'unstuck', so if the sun doesn't come out by Saturday afternoon it'll be 'pins' for me.
However, before I got completely drenched waiting in the playground, I managed to snap a few pictures outside...
I have made the latest Mystery block, Clay's Choice, and as my 'stripe' love is waning, I swapped the colours around a bit so that I only had four squares to contend with. I am rather pleased at how my centre point came together, and logging a lot of tips and techniques for when I finally start to chase those Farmer's Wives about!
The whole lot are looking quite good together though...
Whether there is any scope for sashing between the blocks, only Sheila knows. I am thinking/hoping/pondering some skinny white strips to define the blocks and stop the yellow fever getting too much... time (and Sheila) will tell!
I am relieved to report that my needle case has now arrived safely in the Netherlands to a warm reception from my partner Wendy; she makes such awesome stuff, and has an etsy shop to boot, so I was just a bit anxious that my first attempt was not going to be up to standard, but I appear to have worried unnecessarily; phew.
See folks, I made it to the end without mentioning the giveaway!
