The roll of the dice brought up number four this week, which is my Soul Searching UFO. I had previously sewn all the strip sets as “leader and ender” sewing, and also constructed several of the large blocks. This week I had to make my choice from these.
Strip sets left to sew together
So what colours did I chose? So far the dark blue and light blue blocks have been put together.

With red the next one to be worked on. I like to lay all my strips out in order, to make sure I have them all in the correct order. Those sneaky little strips have been known to lie there quietly the wrong way round, to see if I notice before they are pinned and stitched.
Starting on the red block
And I’m quite pleased with my sewing this week, in between other commitments. Such as cooking – I seem to be doing an awful lot of this lately. It’s winter in our part of the world, and to tell the truth, I love homely winter foods. Recently I’ve made steak and kidney casserole in the crockpot, cooked up a big pot of curried sausages, made some soup, and cooked a big bowl of tamarillos. As kids, we used to call these winter fruits tree tomatoes, who can remember that? These days they are known as tamarillos and I love them cooked to eat with my cereal for breakfast. They are full of all sorts of good vitamins, and taste good too. Robin doesn’t like them, so they are all mine!
