Oh dear! What a week! I never usually "catch" anything going around and I thought grandmas were immune but I succumbed to an awful tummy bug that my beautiful little munchkin passed on to me as well as his mum. Whilst recovering from that I developed a couple of migraines so I thought I wouldn't really achieve much sewing for a while. Well. today I finally completed the last angel block. This is Angela the animal lover. I changed the design a bit as I do not like birds being caged. Infact, I don't even like what a cage represents so I omitted it from my block completely and perched the bird on Angel's hand instead.
The other evening I cut a few borders for some blocks after fussing and huffing for quite a while trying to decide what colours I should use for each block. In the end I decided not to be so fussy and went with the flow. I hope I don't regret my decision. I have the strips ready to sew on and have pinned the chosen outer border fabrics to each block so I don't mix them up.
I even had some energy to cut a few of 2 1/2" squares for the piecing bits. Only another 300 plus to go.
I have now finished 6 Sashiko blocks. These are the latest 3.
I am also proud to say that I finished another book. This one is another Aussie author who I heard on ABC Radio . His genre is not my usual thing and I would describe it as being light suspense. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I think I will seek out his other 10 or so novels he has written.
I am 3/4s my way through another novel so I am really happy I have found my reading enthusiasm again.
