I love surprises, and I love getting parcels. The mail man delivered at lovely surprise parcel addressed to me from fellow quilter Roz. And it was stuffed full of selvedges – how great is that! Thanks Roz, I really appreciate it, and you can be sure they will be put to good use.
My rail fence blocks are coming along slowly. I took them on our South Island caravan trip and used them as a diary, writing down places we had stayed, and attractions we had seen. After going “great guns” earlier in the week and stitching them all into sets of two, I then had to unpick half of them because I really didn’t think things through properly. Of course, with this pattern, I had forgotten that two of the blocks go one way, and the other two go the other way. More haste, less speed!
That’s enough stitching for today, I’ll sit quietly in front of the telly tonight and pin up the rows of blocks I’ve stitched today, all ready for another stint at the sewing machine tomorrow. Then I’ll know for sure that I’ve got them the right way around.
