This is what he was photographing which meant he had to run off the beach to avoid being drenched. What glorious colours!
I have been enjoying some piecing after I came across this amongst my fabrics - which I think is another tray cloth
I did rather wonder if one of my sons had produced it at school but they denied the suggestion, as did my granddaughters, so possession being nine points of the law......... I decided to use the block called "No seams match", which I have used in the past to good effect.
I found several fabrics amongst the vintage scraps that looked good - but had an oops when I ironed one - look at that shrinkage!
In case you haven't used this block before, there are five squares each with a rectangle on one side, three of these are joined alternating direction and the other two units have a long strip along one edge to complete the block. The last time I made this block I used lots of different fabrics but this time it seemed to go better using a limited number. The blocks were the right size in height so I added a couple of strips of vegetable fabric to the width.
Everything not used then went into a pieced back
I think it would make a fun table cloth - just needs putting into a sandwich and as Mrs C reminded me, tying is often more than enough.
I shall close today with another of my glass pin cushions, which bears a startling resemblance to Stitch, the character from the Lilo & Stitch film. I think I bought it in Carterton, ages ago - wonder how old it is?
Did I mention that I used to play golf? It's one of the only two games I can really be bothered watching nowadays, the other is cricket [yes, well......for those non locals, our national team is having a few problems at present ] if pay tv would let me I would just get one channel to watch both games, - anyway, I had to stop playing when I had an ankle injury and I'm now so unfit I couldn't bear not to be the good player I used to be [or thought I was!] This is leading up to the quote for the day - "Sports do not build character. They reveal it." by Heywood.
Thank you for all your comments
Take care and we'll talk again soon
