Woohoo! I finished foundation piecing the Christmas blocks this afternoon, and I just need to trim them to size and tear the papers from the back. It'll be fun to sew them all together.
Those that know me well understand what a huge departure these colours are for me. I'm really a 'reproduction fabric girl' and while they're still my first love, it has been fun playing with these brights and gold accented fabrics.
These blocks are 7" finished, the perfect size for me to print up easy foundation papers. I guess I could have just pieced them without foundations, but I'm looking to use a number of different techniques at the workshop, and I know many of the girls won't have made up this particular block before.
We have had the most wonderful soaking rain today. It started at 9am, and here it is almost 9pm and it is still going steady. The rain is needed so badly here, so I have no problem with it raining for a month. School netball was cancelled tonight though, as the local rec centre roof is leaking - this means I get to snuggle up indoors and get more stitching done. See you on the weekend! :-)
