Just a quick post today to let you know I have not been slacking.. Slow but steady wins the race, right? Here are my 12 blocks all together. Next I'll be piecing the sashing to join these. Then I'll decide whether I want to make more blocks or not. My original plan was just for it to be a not-too-large lap quilt. But I have enjoyed making these blocks so much... I might want to do more... we'll see.. (The only thing holding me back is the amount of cutting to be done.. there are roughly 80 pieces in each block!) For now, this is how it looks, pinned up on my design wall... To quote a friend who dropped by on Saturday- "the photos do NOT do this justice"...
I also have just about finished a Christmas cross-stitch.. and of course I'm into a new book - The Paris Wife (the story of Ernest Hemingway's first wife). Busy, busy, busy.... What are you working on these days?
Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.
