It is a gorgeous rainy Saturday, and while the kids are happily playing cubby house, I thought I would share the next 5 blocks I have done in my 200 blocks project.

Block 53 – Mesh fantasy

Block 55 – Centered square

and block 60 – popcorn corners

Just 2 more squares to go in these colours and I am ready to start joining my daughters Bday blankie 🙂

 

I’m back!

Gosh it feels like I have been gone forever, we have moved house, moved towns, hubby has a new job, and life just gets in the way sometimes unfortunately. 

Not much crafting has been done, but I do have some new blocks in my 200 blocks project to show you. These ones are being made into a blanket for miss 8’s birthday in August. I have skipped quite a few blocks, as I wanted blocks that are made in the round rather than by row for her blanket, but I will be going back and catching up on the others soon.

block 24 – Italian cross

Block 31 – Primrose square
