Finally I have done my very first Block Of The Month. This did have a bit of a shaky start as some how I got some muck on the iron, I don't know how that happened but this taught me always to use another cloth in between so that it doesn't happen again.
I hand washed the block... making sure that everything was hand stitched first so that nothing comes away. I found that the colours ran but I thought never mind this gives the block it's character. The iron also had a good cleaning.
I put hearts round this for Valentines day, after rummaging through my scrap bag. I'm quite please with the hand stitching as this gives it a folk art impression which I love.
Ive done the third row of hexagons towards my magical coat, so I'm pleased about that.
Today I'm hoping to get on with the second Block Of The Month from
Do take part in this, as its alot of fun and I'm sure every one's block will come out different due to one's personal style.
