Top pic taken with flash off; bottom one with flash on.
This is the longest patch, with one row still to add; I set the final strip across the bottom to give you an idea. The patches are all about 14″ wide (I have to say ‘about’, as I don’t measure for the 1/4″ seams; just eyeball ’em and hope for tbe best . . . πŸ™‚ The length is determined by the length of tbe centre strip, in these cases, 2″, 6″ and 10″. I have veen conternplating (HA!) making four of each plus four more with a centre of 14″. Then it would be bed-sized. Currently, with borders, but no sashing, it is supposed to be 45″x58″.

I’m spending the night at my Aunty’s (but not sleeping yet, as you can see), then tomorrow mostly here; Wed am working at my sister’s, then a few days to catch up with other things (like getting my stuff sorted, organized and out if Mum’s living room! …and, of course, the demon blog!! πŸ˜› )

Nearly forgot: the next photo is of my little square tray, which I bought for myself during the post-Christmas sales, and which I use to carry my work and supplies from here on the second floor up to Mum’s on the ninth. It’s about 15″ square. Cute, eh?

  1. Square and neat and very organised :). Love the work you did today. I spent your day sleeping the sleep of the dead most probably drooling on my pillow ;). I don’t own a sewing machine but bought my eldest daughter one a while back because she wanted to teach herself to sew. She has left me for dead (I once made an apron in Home ec class and a wonky napkin πŸ˜‰ ) and made an incredible costume for a manga convention that she attended a few years ago out of red velvet, faux leather etc. and it was amazing! All from a strong will to get what was in her mind out into reality :). I guess that’s why we do what we do…our minds are pushing us to get it out…”GET IT OUT!” πŸ˜‰

    • As my English friends would say, “I am gobsmacked!!”

      I’ve only been blogging since last November and thought it would be years (if ever) before I was noticed for any award…

      Thank you SO much!!

      I will pass this on later this evening, when I will have access to the computer. iPhones are great, but can’t do everything.

    • Thank you again!
      I have a post in draft form, have chosen 15 blogs and copied the bulk of the post over from yours. But the rating stars won’t copy, so maybe I need to try again on the computer. Not sure if I’ll have time tomorrow, but should by Thursday; I need to notify all my awardees.

      I’m so glad you find my blog inspiring; makes me feel good!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I look forward to reading your comments. ~ Linne
