Well, the Craftsy blocks for July were dresden plates, which I quite like and have made before but not with as many blades as these. I did find that the blades were too short for my liking as I prefer a smaller centre but that was after I made two sets! The first set is to go with the rest of my Craftsy blocks:
These I made to add to my red, black and white blocks from Quilting Block Swaps Australia:
I quite like them in black, white and red! I also made a couple of other blocks which I was happy with:
and one I'm not so thrilled with!
Its a little busy I think! Oh well, can't all be successes!
I've had a lovely couple of days with interesting parcels arriving. First yesterday I received a surprise from Sue at Quilted Hugs. A lovely bag of scraps which Sue was going to throw away and sent to me instead after a comment I made on her blog!
What a lovely surprise! I'm planning on tackling a crumb quilt soon so these will definitely get used for that! Thanks so much Sue!
Then today I received two more parcels. One was a DVD called Our Idiot Brother that I won on the Samelia's Mum blog!
Looking forward to a video night on the weekend now! Thanks Anorina!
The second parcel was my eagerly awaited order from Pink Chalk Fabrics. I bought some lovely fabrics recently, not with any real projects in mind but they just called my name (and they were on sale) - you know how it is!
Aren't these lovely?
I seem to be having a lime green phase at the moment (not to mention pink!):
Lovely fabrics, can never have too much! (Just don't tell my other half!)
Thanks for reading my waffle, er blog today!
