My 'Christmas Blessings' block for Jan - completed 4 weeks ago ...
... and my completed 'gymnastics' - and final - block for my SKoW quilt, completed 3 weeks ago.
This block will replace the "old wooden chair" block, and was the one that has been holding completion up for the past year - just didn't quite know how to lay it out, or what to include. I finally decided on using the 'movement pattern' for one of my favourite moves when I was a gymnast 17 years ago - the backflip - through the top and bottom; with kid-gymnasts in the middle, as I enjoyed coaching - and am actually in the middle of refreshing my accreditations right now (over the past few weeks, with a face to face course this very weekend in fact!).
All my blocks, strips and squares are now sitting out on the table next to the sewing machine ready and waiting for when I can next get a moment to sew them together :D
I apologise for the late posting - the last few weeks, month in fact, have been just so full on with things related to both the coaching courses (both beginner and intermediate courses) and catching up on assessment requirements for my Cert III in Education support that I just haven't managed to make the time to post.
I am hoping to get the blocks for Feb requirements prepared and ready to work on next weekend - yes, late I know, but this week looks to be just as full on in the information overload department!!! Once they're prepared, I know it will be easy enough for me to just carry them around with me to work on, instead of my crocheted doilies. I tend to ALWAYS have some on-the-go project with me that I can just pull out of my bag to keep my hands occupied - and not just in waiting rooms! I've been known to work on random stitching and crochet projects during class (yes, I'm a kinaesthetic learner, and I can keep up better when my hands are doing something), and even brought my crochet in with me to the hospital when I was waiting for my knee surgery last year (it was literally only packed away just before they wheeled me into the surgical room, 2 mins before I was completely out of it!!!)
Looking forward to seeing everyone's Nature's Journey quilts grow over the next year!!
