By 9am, the kids were in school, hubby was in work, I had already gathered all the christmas from around the house, and in two hours it was all packed away ready for the loft, the house was hoovered, dusted and returned to a passable level of hygiene, and all was calm once again!
I do love Christmas, but I also love the feeling of space that returns again, once everything is over. Lovely.
So not content with an ordered abode, I then messed it up, pulling most of my stash out to cut all the fabric I wanted to use for a little #economyblockalong action...
Last year, actually the end of 2012, I made a wall hanging for the smallest room in the house. Multiple Little Reds have peered down at us doing our business since then, and now I think it is time for a change. The girls already have dibs on the incumbent, and so I cut all I needed for a 30"x 35" wall hanging; 42 5" blocks using Rita-Red Pepper's cutting guide.
I find fussy cutting and pulling so many fabrics a bit stressful; going completely scrappy goes against nature, control freak that I am, but I did it; there are some repeats, but I am pretty confident that it will work.
Time and trimming will tell xxx
