It’s time to get the purples out and make some more RSC blocks for July. But its been a slow week and I’ve only produced two so far. Both of us have been unwell, so we took a Covid test, which came back negative, thankfully. Just a bad cold I think, which is giving us sore throats and heads. I’m sure its not influenza which is doing the rounds over here as we don't have aching limbs and joints. Lemon and honey drinks certainly ease my throat, and I'm starting to slowly feel better.
So what purple delights have I produced? One lone scotty dog block made from a small piece of cream and dark purple plaid – I’ve been waiting to use this scrap up. And one happy block featuring New Zealand paua shells. The meat is edible, but much too strong for me, give me scallops or oysters any day. And the shells make pretty jewelry and souvenirs for tourists. Every home here used to have a paua shell ashtray in the days when smoking was so common.
Two purple blocks so far
Here’s the boy’s happy blocks I’ve made so far, I’ll need some more I think. But I’m pleased with how they are all looking together, and still have a few more suitable 5in squares to use.
