Civil War club.....2

Today was the second meeting of the Civil War club at the Patchwork Apple...there are a few CW clubs happening there at the moment.....check out Jane's fantastic finish here - certainly something to aspire to......we are working on the first in the series! 

Kris and I managed to finish one block today.......weren't we diligent!!  That's mine on the right ....Kris' on the left.....Kris decided to do hers in "reverse" ......there's always one isn't there..... :)  I am really enjoying this CW journey.........


After the morning class at the Patchwork Apple I came home and collected Rose and we went to watch the local footy - she loved the outing - it was tiring for a little girl though......


.....having to have a little nap now.........don't you love the curls on that ear!!!

Oh I almost forgot.....while I was having a little break from stitching my CW block today I wandered out into the shop for a browse......couldn't pass up this new offering from Barb and Alma of Blackbird Designs......... will be sitting down with this and a cuppa in a minute .................

I made a big call when I started my CW journey....that I would make the red/white blocks and another set in a different colour combo.....which Jane reminded me of today........so I better get cracking hadn't I....!!

I am planning a sewing day tomorrow......I should get out in the garden and get rid of the weeds......and if the sun shines I might just do that for a while......I am sure Rose will be a big help.  Most nights this past week I have managed a bit of stitching on my GJ blocks......need to get some pics for Chooky tomorrow.....August is done........and I am working on September.....!

I can't finish this post without wishing Rhiannon a Happy Birthday.......27 today.....where have those years gone.....?  Hope you have had a wonderful day Rhi.......xx

'Til next time.............................Lorraine

Amazing how a colour change makes a block look quite different. I should be out weeding tomorrow while the soil is nice and soft but I want to sew as well.

What a great idea. How does the club work? I would love to start something like that.

The blocks are lovely.. is that Carpenter's Star?

Kris said...

It was a good morning! I like that it's a morning too. Time to do other things after as well. I came home and sewed a little and then started another project. I think I have starters disease!
