While doing a bit of blog hopping yesterday I came across a neat cushion over at Ellesquare she had made using String Blocks. So I had a look at the tutorial she put a link to which is over at FilmInTheFridge. I then went and made one myself using fabric in my stash. Not perfect, but a good attempt. Next time I am going to do a scrappy one with different sized strips so I don't have to sweat over trying to match the seams.

Here's the next couple of blocks also for the Quilting Blocks Swaps Australia . This month I sent to Tarnyia.
I had two choices. A red star with a blue/aqua background or Scrappy Spiders Web. Well the scrappy Spiders web just scared me as it look a bit beyond my capabilities currently, so I made the Friendship Star instead.

Tarnyia for me this month made a Sawtooth Block in reproduction fabrics. It's still flying it's way to New Zealand so I snagged this picture she put on the Quilting Block Swaps Australia blog.

And here are some random pictures of my garden. I love it when the agapantha's flower en-mass.
One thing about summer here, is there is freedom camping so currently for a couple of months this is my view out the kitchen/ding room window and this only some. They go further south and further north.
