Firstly I would like to say thank you for all my birthday good wishes. I’ve had a lovely week doing all of the things I love to do, which included a combination of racing around London and sitting in the garden knitting in the sunshine, there was a good combination of the two and I feel absolutely content.
And there has also been sewing.
I’m up to date on the Sugar Block Club by Stitchory Dickory Dock, which is an unusual state for me to be in as the days fly by and I realise the month is nearly finished and often I haven’t started the block.
I’ll show you what I have done to date. January was Churn Dash. At which point I realise just how rusty my sewing is. February was Log Cabin. At which point I realise how rusty my colour choosing is, really not sure about those corners. March was Orange Peel. And the realisation that a quilt will be what it will be. There were no such things as quilting fabric shops of years gone by, just scraps. April was Ohio Star. I really like this one, I know its strong but its me all over. May was Lone Star. Who I felt was far too lonely and put a colourful centre in. I felt it balanced the block better, although of course we have no idea what is coming up next. June was Maple Stack. Which I am so in love with. All six together, half way through the year. I think it is going to be quite a colourful quilt.
