Well, I finally got the centre block of the Ryland Manor BOM done. I hope you didn't hear me swearing at all the 'reverse sewing' I had to do to get the roof unit right! The other units went together like a dream but this one just wouldn't cooperate! After much angst and cursing and a few minor adjustments (!) I am happy and looking forward to next month's challenge.
I have mail. Firstly, a prize I won from Katherine at Quilt Obsession. This is a little shabby chic Inklingo kit she was giving away. The hexagons are printed on the back of the fabric ready to cut and sew. Looks like fun. Isn't her sample gorgeous?
She also sent a very nice notebook and a cute kitty bookmark. Don't know how she knew I'd like that one! Thanks, Katherine.
I also received a parcel of books from Amazon. Through blogging I discovered and fell in love with everything Tilda so had to have these two. They are full to the brim with cuteness! I will have to keep a close eye on these as my sister has become a big Tilda fan too!
Fellow bloggers are also responsible for 'making' me choose these. I have loved seeing the Civil War blocks that lots of you are making and decided I'd have a try to. At the moment I'm just enjoying the books but I guess it won't be long before I'll be posting about some of the easier blocks.
Oliver, the resident quilt inspector (borrowed that title from another blog I read today!) is giving these new books the once over. Maybe he thinks the love letters are for him?
PS. A big thank you to my blogging friend Sarah from Georgetown.
