SATURDAY

Today I made the second place-mat with the reject New-York-Beauty blocks. ...


Its funny, when they where to be made into a cushion.... I did not like this block, NOW , I have made them up and I think they are  much nicer.... I wonder if Sally and Blair will notice if they don't arrive in Australia? lol


The postman came while I was working on the place-mat. It was the second Modern-Mystery-Round-Robin block  from Madam Samn in Canada. Her way of addressing the envelope set me off laughing xx...


This is her block for me to work on...


I have 2 very different ideas of what I would like to do. It is hanging on my wall.... for inspiration and decisions to be made xx... Normally when working by hand I use this..


However tucked in with the block were these...


I will let you know how I go on with them..

By the way ,this is what Karen's block looks like now that I have finished it...


MEAN !! (lol) It will wait until the end of the month to be sent on for the next "round" to be added...

Keep smiling

Diane xx

The reject New York Beauties look fantastic as mats. Hope you enjoy the Thimble-Its. I tried them for my underneath finger but can't get on with them. I'm obviously a masochist who enjoys inflicting pain onto herself!

Hi Diane

they are gorgeous - why do you consider them rejects - look pretty good to me and love the colourway. For hand quilting I use a leather thimble with a hard top which helps with pushing the needle through and injured fingers.

Love them what a lovely pressie.

take care

I love this block. The pillows are just lovely. How about a tutorial? I would love to know how to make this block. I have used a thimble for many years, from hemming skirts to hand quilting, it has helped save my fingers. I have 3 different sizes. Hope you like it.
