I have finally decided on my block party fabric and here is a very very bad picture of it.
It is actually the prettiest of minty pistashio green and the heart flowers are subtle grey and white. I spent ages trying to ‘second guess’ what the others would do with a fabric but then decided (as a very wise lady once told me) that I just needed to start with a fabric that I loved and the other clever ladies would do the rest. I’m sure she is right and I kept going back to this fabric time and time again.
I have now cut it up to the big squares according to instructions ( I hope) as carefully and as precisely as I could and now it has gone off to the lovely block party swap goddess who is organising this extravaganza. I hope I have done it right and that it is good enough to go out to all the others. I am so grateful because already I am learning heaps about cutting and organising the squares. Goodness knows how much I will have learned by the end of it. This is such a good opportunity to learn about the whole process, step by step and with the opportunity to try different approaches to the craft. I am really looking forward to matching all the other fabrics that will come my way – of course I don’t really have a stash to dive in to but it will give me a good opportunity to compare the fabrics with a wide range in the store before making my decision. I feel really pleased that I am travelling down this path and whilst my crocheting and knitting is suffering somewhat – it is a great path to be on at present.
