This week I’m working on assembling my candle wick blocks together. This is a really old UFO and I took these blocks away in 1999 when we did a 3 month trip around UK. I remember stitching away after a busy day of sightseeing, while we relaxed in the evening at the various B&Bs we stayed at. It’s so nice to look at all the blocks I stitched during that wonderful trip away.
It may be fairly simple sewing, but still takes ages – although I always imagine when I start out that I’ll be finished in no time at all. What with measuring, cutting, pinning, stitching and pressing each strip, it’s a slow process. But I’m getting there.

I’ve a couple of more strips to sew around the edges, and then I’ll have to think how I want to do the borders. There are a couple of plans percolating in my little grey head, so I’ll just have to see works best.
