Anne worked on some wonky stars that she is making for a quilt.
Meanwhile I was fiddling around with fabric scraps for the applique on this month's Nature's Journey blocks.
I showed Anne a little fabric basket I had made couple of weeks ago using a tutorial by Lisa from A Spoonful of Sugar. Anne had seen it too, so she made one while here. They are so quick and easy. Then we both made a hexagonal version that Lisa had shared the pattern for.
What a difference the fabrics make. Mine are the ditsy ones at the front, whereas Anne used brighter fabrics.
Mick thought it was a pointless exercise when I made the pink one. It took maybe a quarter of an hour to make and that included fiddling around selecting a fabric and finding a scrap of wadding.
Not only are they cute, I think they will be handy.
I didn't get any more done on by Nature's Journey blocks until later, when I worked away until they were all finished. Boy, were my eyes hanging out by then.
I'm pleased with the way they are turning out.
I've enjoyed playing along with the Chook Shed Party. I hope everyone else has too.
