We have had hot, really hot days here, over 30.3Celsius, and almost as hot at night. Then a slight change, cooler days, welcome rain, and lawns looking greener. The One Block Wonder layout continues to be decided, will I leave it all blue, or add sashing in the purple and black fan fabric, or the green fern fabric???
I had to lay the design boards on the floor to get a decent photo, well half-way OK at least.This is the original layout from Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs. This needs to be at least sewn together by the end of February.I would like it all done and quilted by then.
BUT, although blue is one of my fav colours, I think there is too much blue. And there are different blues, as I could not match up any one of them.Options are to add some sashings.I don’t have enough purple fabric to try sashings on all the blocks, and the same for the green fern fabric,But I can so easily get more of either one of these. I know which layout I prefer. What do you think is better or best??? Original, or the purple, or the green?
This morning, for those fleeting minutes, a glorious sunrise appeared
Mrs Thrush continues to wait for her meals. Mr Blackbird, Mr Sparrow, a silvereye and chaffinch have joined the group.
In a pittosporum tree at our back fence, there are 4 birds’ nests, all having been well used, and now empty.I wonder if they were parents from the same species, same family, and wish I had noticed them when the baby birds were in them.
