Stars Going Every Which Way!

So far I’m still sticking with the Christmas Fireworks and two more blocks are done.

First one with the star pointing straight.

Then an off-centre one.

The back of the straight star after grading of the seams and pressing it. When I was taking the photos, I happened to scroll through my camera roll really quickly and it was fun to see how much movement the block that seems off-centre adds. Now I’m really glad I decided to do the blocks both ways!

I’m also very grateful that I caught on to the effect of the two blocks early as I had only made a few of each type and now can ensure that I have equal numbers of the more colourful centres in both settings. I’m excited about putting this top together which will hopefully – hopefully — keep me piecing the blocks!

What else have I been doing? Spending altogether far too much time watching kittens at Tiny Kittens, a rescue organization in British Columbia. The work they do with feral and other cats is extraordinary. Right now there are two groups of kittens – one group composed of kittens that are 5 and 7 weeks old and another group that are just 2 days old. It’s very, very, very easy to suddenly lose hours, watching kitten antics.

  1. My friend who was in HMS, and at sea for many years, said that tot of rum in thick syrupy cocoa was a life saver for him and the crew on the mine detector destroyers. on many freezing nights. Love your fireworks too.


  2. Your blocks are always gorgeous.

    I’m a fan of Kitten Academy on YouTube, a foster currently in Connecticut. They have 2 litters that are 2 weeks apart in age plus an extra single who’s a little older plus 5 permanent cats. They managed to combine them into one big rambunctious family of 13 kittens and 2 mom cats. He’ll be getting a new mom cat soon so we’ll all be on baby watch when she arrives.
