Life here is all Beer and Skittles, in fact none of either frequent our place..Lawns need mowing, meals need cooking, and fabric needs sewing.
The One Block Wonder for December, with Sandy at Upstairs Hobby Room HERE , told us the magic words….
Well December is upon us and everyone will be getting busy with shopping, decorating and food preparations, not to mention gift making and extra family and friends dropping in. So this month's block is super easy, and all about paper piecing..... So I sorted out some batik, and thought a bag would be the way to go.Well, the blocks were a little big for a bag, so it morphed its way to a quilt.These are all batiks from my stash, and the supply is getting a little thin!!! These 36 blocks are pinned on the design wall, and now I decide to either QAYG, Quilting each strip as I go, or to sew all together and quilt it as one piece, and take my courage to a new level.!!!
In the garden, all the plants are blooming, foxgloves are in tall spires, one lone cosmos in a pot, and all else is looking good. The red plane spins with the wind, and tells the direction. Made by Hugh. One visitor asked him if he was a pilot!! No, just very clever with wood and timber, and so much more.
I am having problems with Live Writer and Blogger, so had to paste and copy this to Blogger, the photos seem to be so slow to add, so none of the garden and wind plane. Maybe next time when the post goes as normal.
