This morning was spent buying school trainers and other uninspiring necessities in the run up to the start of term. But when we got home at lunchtime, I was over the moon to be met by an envelope of lovely Brit Bee September fabric from Bee-Mama Laura, who had requested mini-churn dash blocks.
Whilst the rain poured, the kids screamed at each other and Rhonda chit-chattered away in the background, I stitched up my blocks.
Laura had done most of the cutting, but there was inevitably rather a lot of trimming, so the predicted 20mins per block was a little optimistic Ms Lolly, but I had a fine afternoon none-the-less.
I am not 100% happy with some of my churn-points, however I can see that in the scale of the quilt, they will not show once quilted and washed, but I still feel a little niggled. The quilt is going to look amazing when the blocks are all together though eh?
I also made a secret block today which I will be sending over to the US tomorrow too, but I can't show you that, which is a shame as 'i' think it is rather cute - anyone-else in on that??
And so it's time to get all excited again as the Paralympics are starting - I need to go shift a child or two to ensure the best seat for the opening ceremony!
