There are still dandelions, and nettles. And some of that sort of willow herb variant, that is so shallow rooted, that you think it shouldn't be a problem. And is a problem. And I know there is still a bramble lurking amongst the ivy. But things do look a lot better. And we got round to some pots yesterday- encouraged by DD2.
And now with thorns in my fingers, and well nettle stung, I have stopped for a bit!
And, in between, I have managed to sew a little.
I admit it, I have a problem. I am definitely addicted.
These blocks are sooo simple. And sooo effective.
Then this one, again a 'texture' block. Those points on the pinwheel are free, it is just sewn along the hypotenuse. They are ' prairie points', so there is no raw edge to fray.
And the origami flower.
I have one more to make, but I am now dithering. Should I make another with the large centre, and have four like that, or should I make another with the small centre?Most of these blocks have happened in the last two days. Just the first one last week, and the origami flower. How long to make the last one? any guesses?
and, am I then going to think, I shall just make a few more.... or sash it, or put a border on... or.. ?
You know, if I actually planned stuff, this would make life so much more simple! or did I mean boring?
