This is what I have been doing. I am a little disappointed with how the centre blocks seem to look overwhelmed with the surrounds.
It actually looks brighter in reality, than it appears in this pic. It currently measures 36" X 42". I intend it for a child, so dont want it too large, but it needs some border I feel, & I cant decide what to use. Black & White might look good, but I dont really have any suitable fabric.
Suggestions?? Ideas?? All appreciated.
And yes, I know it has mistakes, but they are my mistakes, & I like them!!
I noticed a de lurker badge in my travels, & it seems there must be a lot of readers who come this way, but never leave a comment. Quite a few do send me personal emails, & I do appreciate those.
I am not fishing for compliments- if this is the blog you 'love to hate', that is fine. But I really would like to know who you all are.
I am surprised to see there are now 75 countries who have visited here! Allowing for the fact that a lot of visits may be accidental it still seems a mind boggling number of people.
I notice some replies I get from my comments seem to come directly from the comments on the blog, & I would like to know how to do that? Is there some special way to do it?

We have been off into the township, so Gom could have his hearing aids checked out. It took quite a while, as he was due for a compelte re check, & so I wandered off to look at shops. I found a nice piece of fabric in an op shop.
I bought the paper to read, & some crayons to keep here for SG to use when he comes to play.
I also discovered walking out in the 'fresh air' was quite hazardous! I was innocently walking along behind a very elderly man, when I more or less walked into a wall of stench! It was so bad, I had to stop to recover! He must have been feeling bad!
Then when I got to the car, I wound down the window, & quietly read the paper. Another dear old chap passed beside the car & Whammo!! There I was, with a car full of gas- not the type you ever want in your car!
Last week, I passed a shop with lovely shirts, & wished I had time to buy a couple. Revisited this morning, & it was truly a case of "She who hesitates, Is lost" as there were none of the ones I liked left, nor were there any others I would choose to own!
Not my day, perhaps. But it is lovely & sunny, & not too hot. The fires are all under control, so that is a good thing.
