I did come home to post though. Jennie - Just a Little Stitch - one of the Brit Bee gang had sent the blocks she did for my quilt. They are gorgeous, and please (again!) ignore the colour - or lack there of - in the photo as these are much more vibrant than they appear.
|You can see that for some reason the block on the right looks more colourful.|
Yet they all use the same fabrics.
And all the photos were taken in the same location, one right after the other.
There are 240 yards of twine on this spool, so while it wasn't a budget buy I do expect it will last a long time. Presuming that I convince my two girls that it isn't something they can help themselves to willy nilly. That is optimistic of me but one can only hope that this time the message sinks in.
