Yes, it was that time of month again - get together over at Cheryll's; although she wasn't in, she still let us used her blog - thank you Cheryll!
I missed last month, so it was the first one for me this year, a chance to meet up with everyone last night.
The weather in this part of the world is definitely "stitching weather", the rain is coming down in sheets and the wind just takes your umbrella away.
So, what was I up to?
In my post "2001 Blocs", just before the end of January, I wrote about a book of the same name, published by Quiltmania.
The lovely people at Quiltmania are now running a Mystery Quilt 2016, The Tuesday with Flowers,
using blocks from the book. On the last Tuesday of each month they publish 2 blocks, which are free and downloadable. The first 2 (very easy) blocks, published in January, are now on their website.
Last night I started with block no 2 (I could not decide on a colour combination for block no 1);
and finished block.
A month is a long time for 2 blocks, so it is easy to fit them in between other projects, and at the same time to use up some of the fabric stash we all seem to have.
Earlier in the week I did some more embroidery on the side panel of Yoko Saito's box.
I am doing embroidery instead of applique here, because the applique pieces would be so, so small.
I am not happy about the green, it just doesn't look anything here; I will have to unpick it ( I hate doing that!) and think of another colour......
Thank you for visiting my blog,
come back soon!
