November Blocks, look at that purple.


The last 2 weeks have been a blur, 2 hospital visits for  Hugh, one for a gash in his arm, the next for cataract surgery.All went well,  a check up with the surgeon in another  12 days , sewing continued, with many interruptions.

The November blocks are done, with some new blue, teal and purple fabrics to add to the others. Dianne  did say that with batiks, they all go well together, no matter what shades. I do like the new purple, fan shaped strips on black, quite startling.And the new teal has blobs of all the other colours  I have used.

I am looking forward to the way all these mighty blocks go together, specially the 19 inch courthouse steps.

November blocks all done

Hubby had cataract surgery for both eyes and it went perfectly so good luck there.
I do so love batiks; the colours have a glow to them and I'm very partial to that teal. Yes, I think Diane is right; all the colours seem to co-ordinate. What a beautiful piece this will be.
