ON SATURDAY....

... I got the pattern and fabric for my July Brit-Bee swap block...


...when I read it my shoulders went up .. and I thought "OH DEAR" .. or words with those letters anyway! lol

SO.. this morning I made my practice block ...


..mmm I was right to be unhappy x Mind you I have learnt A LOT from the practice... I was CONSIDERING making the real one ... when the Postman called

I knew my daughter was sending me a parcel.. and in it was included some wool that she had had a go at dying .. and then got in a tangle. I had said (as you do as a parent!!!!!!!!!!!!!) .. don't worry send it to me and I will sort it out .. and make you something with it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT was I thinking!!? lo

THIS...


.....is what I got..

.. those words were said AGAIN!!

After 3++ HOURS I had..


.. the fluffy bit on the right is all I threw away x....  after another 10 MINUTES I have...



..so now I can think about WHAT to make with it xx lol .. practicing patience/pig-headedness does pay-off sometimes xxx

Pig-headedness and you???? NEVER!!! Making a practice block is a smart move. I look forward to seeing your actual block and what you do with the yarn. It is interesting looking and I have no idea how you were able to make a ball out of it at all!!!--Terry
