Splendid Sampler 2 - and we're off

Wow, it's nearly two years since my last post.  Time flies so fast, doesn't it.  I haven't done any patchwork in all that time, but I have been doing lots of crochet, knitting and cross stitch.  I needed something portable as I was spending more and more time looking after my aged father, so the patchwork got put aside. Dad died a year ago this month but I got caught up in so many other things that sitting down at my sewing machine hasn't been high on my agenda.  However, now that Pat Sloan has started The Splendid Sampler 2 Sew-a-Long I was itching to make a start on something new,  I love sewing along with all the other people and get so much inspiration fom seeing all of the different takes on the block.  I'll  just add these blocks to the ones already made from the first Splendid Sampler.

It did feel good to get my stash of French General out again and go through it to find some scraps for this first block.  I can't wait for the next block to come out.
