WELL!...

... you lot had plenty of excuses why you could NOT come and help square-up my blocks!! lol x

SO... while talking to Sally (in Australia) this morning... Skype is the BEST thing since sliced bread, OR, the rotary cutter xx....  I trimmed and trimmed ... and now I have ..


a pile of trimmings!!!! AND....


96 half square triangles that can be used to make blocks xx Sally says I am MAD and have TOO MUCH patience! However I would rather do this ...then the mistakes in piecing are mine... than have blocks I am unhappy with. xx

OH! The tea and cake...


ALL GONE! However the kettle is always on... and there is ALWAYS cake... for the grandchildren you understand xx

Keep smiling

Diane xx

Oh gosh, that's a lot of trimming! Thank goodness for Skype, or audible books! The blocks look fab, have you got brown *and* turquoise? Or is it the light in the photos? The blocks look great, don't think I could have that much patience, think my brain gets RSI!

You ate ALL the cake?! And there was enough for us?! Well... I suppose with all that work you'd need ALL the cake.

I too always trim my blocks. And then sometimes I get points that meet up :) Skype is fabulous, isn't it.
