Pom Pom Tree - Block 11

We only have one more block after this one, then I will have to work out how I made the sashing and border for this quilt.
This block is one of the more simple of the 12, so you should be able to have it completed in no time.

The next block, number 12, is a little more complex.  I went looking for the file in my computer today, and it looks like I neglected to save it, or saved it is some obscure place, now I can't find it.  So it looks like I will have to do it all over again.  So much for "getting ahead"!

The block 11 is now available on the Legend and Lace website.  It is a digital download pattern for $4.95.  If you use Pay Pal you will get a strange message saying there has been an error  -   ignore that!  Sorry about this, but I can not seem to fix it, and plan to take Pay Pal off the website once these patterns are complete.  You will get a link for the pattern and you can print it off.  Remember that you have 3 days to download, and you have 3 attempts.  If you have a problem, let me know and I can reset it.  Email me Legendandlace@gmail.com.

Talking about things technical, I had a really bad week last week with techno stuff, and was practically pulling my hair out.  I won't bore you with all the details, but my mobile phone SIM was cancelled (not by me!) and I was told it would be 3-5 business days before I had a replacement.  Not happy with that, so I changed carriers, kept the number and  moved on.  When I wanted to email my Wholesale customers to let them know I had a phone problem, I found I could not send out emails.....same company......they had done "something" to my email account.  It is all sorted now, but not before multiple phone calls to the "customer help" centre, which is now in the Phillipines!  All the people employed in their Melbourne office were sacked in May and a new centre opened off shore.

I have tried to keep calm and do some nice sewing, and started a new project.  I am making a 4 Card Trick.

This is a lovely old block., and I am going to "zoom it up" with some good repro fabrics.  This is just the start, then there is a little "reverse" sewing, as you have to be really careful about what fabrics you put next to each other.  So, I got it wrong, by trying to do it fast, but will be better behaved now.  I am figuring on cutting out 4 blocks at a time, that way I can use the same fabrics twice, but spread them about into the blocks.  Should keep me busy for a while.
