SOME PROGRESS AT LAST



Home from Sydney and down with a virus. Better now and I started a block and didnt want to stop as they are quick and relatively easy to put together. After doing all these blocks I will put the first two rows together and then maybe I can start the next row of  blocks.


 I found the curves a bit challenging but liked the finished brolly.

 i decided to go with the book title as it was one that I had read and enjoyed.

 Doing this block I had a real craving for chocolate, not good for my figure.

 This was a challenge and I ended up doing each petal separately and then had to sew a bigger centre to hide the ends but I liked the end result.

 Hot chocolate, really enjoy a mug of this on cold nights.

 Icecream....yummy, definately felt like one of these cones.

I liked this block and made my labels of places I have been.
Bye for now and I am off to see what everyone else has completed. This really is fun. Jude (judesstuff).

Hi Jude, great blocks. Is that a button on the top of your ice cream? That's a great idea! Tracee xx
