I HAVE BEEN SEWING TODAY...

...the Valentine Round-Robin is coming to an end this month... and so I have ..OF COURSE.. joined in for the 2013 Modern-Mini-Round-Robin!! To-day I made the centre block...


When it goes in the post to-morrow it will be a MYSTERY as to how it changes xx

I also began work on the Simply Solids Bee. I made some practise blocks first...

THEN I began work on the blocks in solid fabrics as requested by Sue. It has taken MUCH unpicking and fraying of fabric and nerves to achieve 2 ... sort of.. passable blocks!! I just could NOT get the grey points to match!! These are going in the post...


 
with apologies .. I do not want to see them again!

I also received this months Simply-Solid fabrics..

Lovely x

Keep smiling

You seem to be having such a great (busy bee) time.

Well, you certainly aren't bored. Love those little kitty cats in your practice blocks.

Looks like you've been having some fun with these!! : ) I starch like mad before I cut any fabric, and iron like a maniac, and it was still a pain trying to get things matching perfectly!

You have kept yourself very busy! Love watching your projects progress.

Hehehe. I know I've got a swap addict in you.

I love your solid blocks also. I usually like mixed and patterned, but after seeing those solid blocks, it's giving me other ideas! Well done

I sometimes think it is the instructions and not the quilter when someone as experienced as you can't get points to match. They still look good and I really like the new solid fabric colours.
