#6 - Big Dipper
#68 - Postage Stamp
#115 - Square Dance
Oops! I've only just seen this! One of my dancers is out of step. Oh well, there's always one, isn't there. This block isn't from the book but is from a little booklet called '20 Simple Block Designs' that came free with issue 4 of Love Patchwork & Quilting magazine. The blocks are all 12" blocks, but it was easy enough to reduce it to 6" square.
I'm having fun with Lori Holt's Quilty Fun Sew Along. I take forever choosing all the lovely happy colours which are so heartwarming to sew in this cold and wet weather we are having.
Week 10 - Four Patches
I'm not getting as much sewing time as I would like at the moment as I'm doing a grand de-clutter of my home ready for a bit of decorating. This involves going through every drawer and cupboard and deciding whether I really need to keep items that haven't seen the light of day for years, or whether I can throw it out and not miss it. These decisions can take forever, and I move things from one pile to the other, and back again. So many things hold a lot of sentimental memories but are just taking up space and I know I should just get rid, but I don't want to live in a completely sterile environment where only things that have a purpose are allowed. I'm not very good at making these decisions so I put it off, but then feel guilty if I use that time for other purposes. I don't know why. I've only myself to please.
