Stitching in colour: A POTC a month (November)

I decided to show only the ones I have made. So here goes:

November: White + Red

I wanted to create a swirl but didn't succeed. Meh.

Stitching in colour: Designer Mystery BOM - 06

This is awfully late. While I did start block 06 of the BOM three weeks ago, I couldn't keep at it and left it unfinished for two weeks. Too much grey, maybe? It certainly has that in common with the current weather.

So much fabric is left in the package! It almost looks like I didn't use any. I am debating wether or not to sew all the blocks a second time or to use the beautiful fabric for other projects.

Block 06 is appropriatley named Town Square and was designed by Kate Spain. My imagination shows me a park in the middle surrounded by little shops on the main street.

I hope the next blocks will be more colourful again. And if not, I decided to make them so. No one needs that much grey!

Stitching in colour: A POTC a month (October)

Though it's November already, I didn't receive the POTC for October until yesterday. My swap partner simply forgot. She had sewn it in her summer vacation and put it away and out of her mind. The wait was well worth it though, look:

I've waited to receive this POTC before showing the one I sent out in October. I didn't want to do two separate posts. So here it is:

October: Yellow + Red

I already received the block for November, but haven't even started on mine. So well, we wait again. Ha.
