I have had great fun making, and sending blocks to ladies in their different colourways . . . it’s been a wonderful motivator, to learn to tackle new block patterns and to use colours I wouldn’t usually choose to sew with.
My colour inspiration photo for this swap was
Colourful lorikeets: and I asked for bright blue, orange and green on a white background.
I received the first 2 sets of blocks from ladies in France . . . along with some lovely gifts too.
These are the blocks made by Sandra (who doesn’t have a blog) and she sent me a lovely little purple felt pin-keep.
A zoom on blocks which are all square, it’s my photography which isn’t spot on.
And from Lynn
an overall view of blocks, plus some extra goodies . . . a lovely card printed with a photo of one of Lynn’s kittens, two bookmarks (one in patchwork, the other in crochet) and a cross stitch kit!
Now for a zoom of those lovely blocks
Aren’t they all lovely? And how exciting it is, to finally be on the receiving end. Thank you ladies, and please stay tuned for the the next blocks to arrive.
