In the last post you may remember I was wondering; lost amidst a pinwheel failure. (We won't mention the blog bloopers at this time).
Anyway, after the last post I went back to the drawing board and decided that the success of the pinwheels would not allude me. So I called in my brain's trust-The Bloke! And he came through for me yet again. I had the idea to try the new and larger blocks out on paper first. He duly cut them out and was sooner pinwheeling the papers together to make a perfect pinwheel block. So determined to make amends for my earlier indiscretion with the said rather small triangle pieces I set to cutting the correct amount of fabrics and then slicing and dicing and splicing until I had some blocks that were worthy of a photo shoot.
So intent was I on achieving this challenge the other day that I did not even open my new parcel of fabric that had arrived from Hawthorne Threads. I tell ya, this is a rarity, as usually the minute a parcel arrives its all paper and plastic in 30 seconds. Still I also like to delay a special moment. It's like when your eating a bag of lollies and you save the best ones till last...or is that just me???
So in the next post I hope to be able to show you more progress and then you will see how clever I really am :) Have a great weekend and do something you love, I am.
