Guess what? It has been raining here. Not a great amount but enough to lift our spirits and we actually got to use the windscreen wipers in the car. Haven't used those very often this year. I have had to make some "Executive Decisions" with my projects that I have been working on this week. Yesterday I cut sewed and ironed all morning and into the early afternoon. I finished my Row-of-the Month Block. This months theme was "scraps". I did make one mistake,if you look at the second block from the left. The centre purple shape which is supposed to be a five sided shaped is only fours sides. I was wondering when I was making it why it was working out so different to the others. Then came the light bulb moment when I ironed it. This was where the "Executive Decision" came in,the block was staying in there. After all the theme was scrappy!! . Anita is also making this quilt with me. I wonder what she did for this month's scrappy block?
Another "Executive Decision" involved my blue crochet doily. I was running very short on thread and I found no-one else who would have some. When I used to go to crochet each Tuesday I was about the only one at the time crocheting in colours. The rest of the ladies stuck to white and ecru cotton. So I decided to finish it off. The rest of the pattern was more or less using double the amount of thread due to the pattern. Crochet takes a fair amount of time and I didn't want to continue on and find I couldn't finish it. This will be another finish for the OPAM Challenge.
cross stitch and embroidery in red,white and blue. The authors of the book are Agnes Delage-Calvet, Anne Sohier-Fournel, Muriel Brunet and Francoise Ritz. I am just using the one thread colour DMC 221.
So I have lots to keep me busy this week.
I would like you to pay Jenny a visit. Jen has decided to join in the "Makes Me Happy Monday" postings.
A pinch and a punch for the last day of Winter.
