(As a largely irrelevant aside, I seem to have developed a bit of a thing for those 19th Century style titles. You know, the ones like On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. Something about the "or" just opens up so many possibilities. Maybe it's my terminal indecisiveness. Moving on...)
What with the pervalong and several swappy things I haven't had a lot of time to sew much recently. I did, however, finally manage to get to this month's bee blocks, and amazingly it is still October.
Chelsea asked for wonky spiderweb string blocks this month for do.Good Stitches, using this tutorial that she provided. These were great fun to make, although I was having a bit of a numpty day and accidentally cut off the seam allowances from one of my sections. I might have sworn a little. Possibly.
It was the turn of my favourite Canadian, Amy (sorry Susan, but you come a close second!) in the Kinky Bee this month, and she went all wonky too, with log cabins a la Quilt Dad. I loved loved LOVED making these, and was a bit sad to run out of fabric part way through. Amy was expecting this to happen so I sent them back as they were (although I felt all unfulfilled).
So yes, this weather annoys me because it is totally impossible to get a decent photo of anything. It's all grainy and the colours look awful. That's it - I'm moving to Tuscany. Anyone want to join me?
