These pink and white Snow Crystal blocks are going together amazingly quickly. I finished this one off last night.
Every time I press one of these blocks, I’m thrilled with how the little seam intersections all work out and the block lies so flat. This is a very good reminder to myself to do the blocks as I go rather than save them up and do a bunch at once. That becomes tedious. Doing a block at a time is quick and, when all the blocks are done, I’ll be ready to stitch the rows together rather than having to press endlessly.
I think, if I add 2 or 3 more sets of large hexagons surrounded by stars to this candle mat/table runner/ whatever it is that I had started, this would be a nice size and perhaps a good Christmas gift. Binding this may be an adventure but I love the look of it and think some pretty quilting could be done in the centre of the large plain hexagons.
The gardener has been out on the roof garden taking the flowers out of the flower beds and from around the trees. It is now really starting to look like the grey days of fall have arrived. Looking out and not seeing those brilliant colours means, I guess, that winter really is coming. I hope every year that somehow it might give us a miss but …
Lester is definitely getting his winter coat. Some serious combing/brushing will be going on around here now.
