Having waved dear husband off to work and safely deposited the children back in school yesterday, I hunkered down to a nice bit of sewing, whilst the wild winds blew and the torrential rain beat the crap out of the conservatory roof! (That's an official weather category, honest!)
As has become customary, first week of the month I like to get my Brit Bee blocks made, due in part to the paranoid fear of a total sewing machine malfunction later in the month, but mainly as I can't wait to make and finish a project in one sitting!
Judith, Rags To Bags, sent us a bag of scraps, asking for log cabin blocks, any type, any style and directed us to her great Pinterest board for inspiration.
With the request for the centre fabric to come from our stash to 'remind her of the maker', and the outer edges to be of a particular fabric she'd sent us all, Judith pretty much gave us free-reign, simultaneously exciting and just a bit scary!
So here they are...
I love the mini-log cabin in the top one, even if I do say so myself; and the cheeky birds having a natter, who could they be?
I had great fun making these blocks Judith, thank you for trusting us, well, me in particular!
PS. I hope everyone came through yesterday unscathed; we just got very wet, twice, lost our analogue TV picture for a few hours, had to navigated one section of deeply flooded road and a couple of fallen trees on the drive to swimming lessons, but I know people were really affected, and hope it wasn't any of you.
