Not a lot happening in the Mixed Media household this week while my foot is still bruised but I have managed a little gentle sewing today courtesy of my left foot. Kate's instruction for November for the Stay Home Round Robin was to attach 2 blocks of differing lengths to the top edge.
These are the two blocks I made. The lower block includes a snowball block, the first time I have made one of these. I have a feeling the triangles shouldn't be quite so big but I'm happy with it. The topmost block is made with free cut curved piecing again and I have tried to echo other colours and shapes in the rest of the piece.
This is how it looks now with the two blocks added. I am so enjoying this monthly project! :)
I am probably teaching my grandmothers to suck eggs but I learned something at Sheena Norquay's workshop that may save my thread box from descending into a tangled mess.
We are all familiar with this type of cotton reel (above), but did you know they did this?
No, neither did I! The end pops back in to hold the thread secure until you need to use it again. Who'd a thunk?!
