I’ve been a busy little bee working steadily and completing a few more DJ blocks.
E11 Wagon Wheel – appliqué. This took a couple of evenings of happy sewing to do. There’s no rushing this project!
I11 Coyote Chase – pieced and appliqué. Nice and easy.
M2 Duff’s Bluff – English paper pieced. I love the fact that for some blocks I can choose what technique I use depending on what I feel like doing at the time, this block could have been done by piecing or by foundation piecing too but I like to hand stitch in the evenings so EPP was the perfect choice.
F12 Starburst – pieced and appliqué. Those thin arrow points were tricky!
D4 Crystal Star – pieced and appliqué, another straight forward block.
Nothing too complicated this time.
I visited a local charity shop today and as I walked in I was greeted with the words, ‘Everything’s half price today’ well I didn’t need any more encouragement to have a good look round. I bought a couple of beautiful glass paperweights.
I remember as a girl I bought something similar for my Mum because I thought it was so pretty, and now many years later I have my own (Mum still has hers on display 🙂 )
Until next time,
Do please consider leaving a comment – it’s always lovely to hear from you.
