Anita asked for a 'neighbourhood block' some building or scene that would represent where we are, and that she can assemble all the different blocks to make a unified quilt, from all our neighbourhoods.
In January I took a couple of photographs at work, in the snow. So when I was trying to choose what to make for her, this image came to mind- after much sifting of thoughts, and comparing of many images - possibly four images?
I like the drama of the trees, and the building just to the right of that further tree has an interesting roof. So that became the inspiration for this block.
And I like the cold and snowy feel of it, and Anita likes it too, so that is another one done!
what is next? an aqua grey and yellow block, and then a pinwheel or star. Just do not expect too quick action!
On another note, my crafty DD2 made the most delicious Easter eggs.
Eggs were well washed, and then dyed with food colouring. They came out amazing jewel colours- I think vinegar was involved?
She then filled the eggs, with a sort of truffle mixture. Very delicious, and she left these two behind, and I am the greedy one who is eating both! well, I have eaten one, and have the other in my sights for tomorrow!
I promise, very nice indeed!
