Well do you have snow?? We had black ice and blue skies here in Ayrshire this morning which I think is more dangerous than snow. The kids certainly would have preferred snow on the way to school this fine morning!
I had a fun weekend of sewing and thanks to Krista at Krista Stitched, ended up making this on my Saturday night.
Have you heard of the scrappy trip along??? You may have heard a little about it! The tutorial can be found over here but Krista was very clever and reduced the size of her strips and block to 1 inch by 6.5 inch strips for her block. I have been dying to try out the scrappy trip block but don't want to use all my fabric up ( I don't have an abudance of fabric unfortunately) so saw this as the perfect way to try it out. It was fiddly but I found some spray starch helped a lot and some patience et voila!
I love it!
Also I received some happy mail from Rachel aka Mamafairy for my turn as queen bee of the Hipbees. Look at the cute card she made! I love it and my blocks are going to make a beautiful quilt. Can't wait to start putting it all together.
Bye for now
