FNSI - a great excuse to sew (well - really do we need an excuse???)
I had already cut these poppy blocks after seeing some on Marilyn's blog. So I assembled them - I left the black stitching on the circles for a daytime sewing session. They are for Aussie Hero Quilts. I couldn't commit to a whole quilt, but a few blocks will always help.
This is a really quick block and no fussy matchy bits - a great group pattern and I think it would look great using all sorts of floral fabrics and the same coloured centre.
Then I put my "Bob the Builder" hard hat on and constructed a building for my Welcome to the North Pole quilt. I was really sorry I couldn't do this last year when there was a group going, but I am having fun with it now.
This is the Coffee Shop (originally the Marble House - but patterns are just a guide - aren't they??) - I figure Santa & Mrs Claus need a few good cuppas to get them through that busy season... I know I do....I am thinking they are going to need something more than a coffee...maybe a pub???
Thanks for everyone's company and thanks to Wendy or hosting and providing recipes.
