What possessed me, I have no idea but on the weekend I decided it would be fun to make a 2.5″ cake stand block. It was actually a lot of fun to stitch. I printed .50″ and 1.5″ HSTs, a couple of .5 x 1.5″ rectangles and two .50″ squares and the little block practically put itself together. I used two different Inklingo collections to do so, the HST collection and the .50″ Log Cabin collection. That’s a penny in the photo, to give an idea of scale.
Then for fun I decided to make a 5″ block using the same fabrics. Again, it practically put itself together. The only difference in this one was that I used shapes from the 1″ Log Cabin collection with the larger HSTs.
The two blocks, side by side.

After watching so much coverage of the Royal Wedding on Friday, Hugo needed to see a castle so off we went to take him to see Casa Loma.
First he saw part of the stone wall.
Then the castle started to appear.
We rounded the corner and Hugo got his first good glimpse of the castle.
We saw the castle stables.
And then we were right across the street from the castle. Hugo jumped up on the dashboard and had a good long look!
This is going to be a busy week as I’m acting as registrar at a tribunal hearing all week. Oh, how I wish I had a smart phone or iPad! With one, the inevitable long drawn-out recesses would be much more bearable. I think the next technology buy for me will be one of those two things.
We seem to have found food that Smudge definitely likes and is eating. That is a huge relief for us and he seems much happier. Here he was relaxing. I love the crossed paws pose.
