I've been irritatingly sick for the last little while, nothing major but just enough to keep me in bed and asleep during most of my recent downtime. Anyway it has curtailed my crafting and internet time, it'll be nice to get back to creating and reading about what everyone has been up to. Being sick is boring.
These blocks were made yesterday and as a way to reenter crafting they were well outside anything I'd usually try. Jenny is the quilter for the Grace circle in do. Good Stitches this July, she asked us to make two wonky cross blocks with orange and brown as the background colours. They were really easy and fun to make but those colours made things a bit hard.
I ended up buying some brown fabric because I had so little. Standing in the brown section of the store it struck me once again that I really don't like certain colours. It's almost as if I find them uncomfortable. I rejected bolt after bolt before finally deciding on the two I ended up with. Now that I look at them in the finished block they're suddenly appealing, especially the one with the turquoise trees.
