I finally got the final block of my 4 block hand pieced sample done for classes at the Sewing Sanctuary from February http://kitsnpieces.com.au/
This block is called "Island Creek Hustler" - whatever that means!! It is from Block Base and there is a little note about it being from a Maine, USA, Periodical called "Hearth and Home".
We will be doing one block a month for 4 months, then the next term it will be applique and hand quilting. Anyone interested in joining in, please contact Karen Bennett email@example.com and she will take your name and give you more information.
In the next few weeks I plan to sash these blocks, and that will probably be in red.....first choice anyway.
I have to have a rest of my hands, arms, shoulders - today I had steroid injections for tendonitis in my elbow, and bursitis (how do you spell it?) in my shoulder. I am feeling a bit sore and sorry for myself today.
