I have had some frustration this week. All of a sudden the computer couldn't find google. it would accept emails, and if I knew where something was, I could get to that. But I couldn't sign in to google. Nor would it find bing, or yahoo search engines. And we didn't know why.
Luckily my son came home on Friday, and took 10 minutes to sort us out, so now I can write here again.
What have I been doing?
I took Thursday off work and went to make fabric origami Christmas decorations. They are very pretty, so I better show you what is there.
I am really struggling to get these pictures where I want them, so you will have to excuse that, for the moment...
I have also had a few tries at the next FMQ design. This is pine needles. I have to say, I quite enjoyed it. That doesn't mean it looks particularly good, just that I felt reasonably relaxed with it. I forgot to changethe colour of cotton, ok, I couldn't be bothered to change the cotton, so the result doesn't really show up, but this is the result
front of first try,
and the backs..
yes, I ought to have clipped the tails, but I hadn't. Now I can visit the others who have been doing this too, via Fluffy sheep and see how they fare.
And I also made a hat. For the Knave of Hearts, though I expect it is too big, but will take some tucks as required.
I think it will do the job.
And now I will go attempt Leila's next block. It is more paper piecing, which doesn't thrill, but the finished block looks lovely.
