I have been in the company of my daughter and almost - walking grand daughter all day....they have gone home now so I thought I'd have a wee breather and a quick update on what I have been up to this week.
First up are my blocks for Siblings Together - Nicky, one of my Stingy Bee pals, kindly offered to put together and quilt a joint effort from our Bee. She suggested "boy" colours so hopefully these will be ok. The exercise certainly made me realise how little blue I have in my stash. The blocks are scrappy Trip Around the World ones that have taken blogland by storm. I have made these blocks before and actually run a Day Workshop called, A Day Trip Around the World. However, I have only done it with controlled colours, so it was fun to be more scrappy although I have to confess unpicking in the wrong place, more than once.
My other little project was a coin tray, requested by the brother of my SIL, as a gift for his wife. Colours (cream & gold) as requested, hope she likes it.
The fabric I had was a tiny bit of gold Christmas fabric, and I teamed it with some cream linen.
First thing this morning I got going on one of my UFOs and am off to do a bit more. I will be back to share my progress and explain the mechanics of my plan to make it into a big floor cushion.
Have a great weekend everyone.
