Ok so on Sunday I blogged that I was going to complete the January and February Lucky Star BOM Blocks and that I was going to pick from my stash instead of buying more fabric!
Anyway I found this wonderful pile of fabric that I was saving for who knows what. Its Pat Bravo's Dreaming in French collection and I thought well there's no point leaving it in a box in a cupboard - let's use it! I am just hoping I have enough for the whole project.
So after a slightly delayed start (we went fishing and the only thing we caught were pippies which got the kids (and me) quite excited) I finished the January block last night and managed to finish the February block today, while my 3 year old had a much needed nap. The colours are much truer in the picture at right rather than the blocks. Not sure what happened there. And yes I do need to iron better.
I do have a rather large pile of largeish offcuts from the blocks. Maybe I should cut the starting strips smaller so there is not as much wastage. Any ideas peeps?
I am quite pleased with myself and I am thinking this method of blog your goal for the day may work in the future. A bit like writing a list for lots of people to see and shaming yourself into doing it so you don't look like a big wally :)
