|Block 59 Night & Day|
We did have some issues - I kept stuffing up the angle of the sewing line on one of the pieces and every time I flipped it to press, I noticed I hadn't covered the required amount of patch - so off it came - 5 times! The 6th time, the paper was all but shredded (made it very easy to remove after that!) but it worked and the next block appeared so easy in comparison, on I went...
|Block 60 Noon and Light|
Why I thought it would be a great idea to continue is beyond me - but maybe the rose wine I was slurping had an influence on my decision making - and maybe I was thinking it was a quick and easy block, I could just do it and then that's another finished......whatever it was, I chose the completely wrong patterned fabric - gingham - and nothing seemed to line up - even though it didn't take very long..
|Block 61 - Northern Lights|
...and then to top it off, I thought I'd make yet another! Eaglehawk Rose certainly tickled my creativity last night!
|Block 62 - Old Windmill|
So another 4 completed and another (furiously thinking 111-62 =.....) 49 to go......
......and a random finish for perservering with this tale - one of my chooks is broody - she's sitting on 18 eggs - we don't think they're all viable - the old rooster isn't as sprightly as he used to be - but here she is sitting patiently and we're hopeful to have a 'birth' day any time...
|She's not a fat chook - she just seems to have 'oozed' out to ensure even coverage of the clutch underneath her|
