I have finished another block. The other two (the Same are well on the way. I do not plan the colours till I have done each part. I chose the Square in a square. Then after they were put together I chose the HST. Then finally the cornerstones for onpoint. I have had the centres made for ages. That is how I always work. I like each step to be a surprise. It always works out. Enlarge the block to get a closer view of the fabrics. The block is square it is just my photography Have a great week All Cheers Lynne

All the photos enlarge. The fabrics are all repros but come from many collections Past and present. I just wish that I had started to collect Repros sooner. My stash of Repros has only been collected over the last 6 years and if I see any of the older ranges try to add them to the stash too.
Some people find Paper-Piecing maddening I just love it. Stay tune for the next borders. Have a great Weekend All and enjoy whatever you do :-)Cheers Lynne

Block1 Before I had those wonderful HST papers. In case you are wondering the HST made for Block1 - 2 and 3 I have never delegated anything to the bin but they were getting the better of me. Just would not behave.
All the photos will enlarge :-)
Block1 Version2 Block2
Love Bird Fabrics :-) Love this block.Beginning of Block3
Beginning of B3 the HST this time are the same values. Just so that it looks different. I also have a finished project. totally different.
I have a great niece Zoe who is 1. I made her a present. Have not bought the little T-Shirt to match yet but plan on adding enough to it so that relates to the skirt. I has fun making this. It is nice and bright and fresh. Spring is here.
Close up of the flowers I plan to make another pink one and RicRac leaves to decorate the T-Shirt Cheers Lynne
Week2 Week3 Don’t you just love them. A dear friend gave them to me last year when I was not well. Hers all died. She probably looked after them too well. I am sad to say that I neglected mine and can not believe the results. These gorgeous flowers State Emblem of South Australia normally grow out in the desert.
Sorry for the blog break. Have not been well – Fibromyalgia and a shoulder that I would like to give away. It keeps me awake at night and severely encroaches on my alert time for stitching. I am slowly getting on top of things and have found medication I am not allergic to.
Will post a few of the things I have been doing. Not anywhere near enough but little by little I’ll get there.
Here is my Lorraine Lea Rose in the side garden.
