I am so far behind on the RSC15 because I started so late, that I thought I would have a marathon cutting session last night. I am following Angela’s pattern and making sawtooth stars with different middles so a large number of flying geese were needed.

When I came to sew this morning I was a red square short. I was sure I have cut four but it was late so maybe I miscounted. I cut another only to find this when I started to chain piece the second round!

so that's where it went

So that’s where it went! I have never done that before – sewed things to myself – but not this!

This morning was very productive, even with a bit a babysitting and a trip to a bootsale. It was a wet and windy last night which put a lot of stall holders off so there were hardly any.  My other half got a demi-john for £3.00 but only after I snorted in derision laughed when the stall holder said £5.00! The girls got an animal book and a lovely glass paperweight. With only two patchy rows there was little choice so I got nothing.

I had bought a pair of scissors in Fabric8 (only £2.00!) yesterday which came in handy today as they are so large and I had many geese to separate. Only a couple of snips and they were done.

Big scissors

Now for the inner blocks. January is medium blues; whirling geese and card trick. Let’s hope the weather brightens up as it is a bit dark for taking photos indoors without a flash (and I can’t find my tripod to do a long exposure)
