Actually Lowie, it isn't a caramel, it's a vibrant orange...the phone photo has washed it all out dreadfully. Will get Mr.Ruby to use his super duper camera for next months' progress pics.

And, whilst I'm ducking for cover here (ducks behind sofa  0_0) would you like to hazard a guess at what my number 6 fabric is as it isn't in the photos? Here's some clues....fabric 3 and 4 have to be lighter shades than fabric 6, and fabric 6 has to be dark to offset my light fabric 1....and given that 3 and 4 are light green, and mid green...whaddya reckon fabric 6 is???????  Sorry my sweet! 0_0

....and the dusting and vacuming can wait!

You could also have picked up on that scrumptious autumnal red in your no: 5 !!!
Something to think about if it starts to look too green!

Second group done and dusted back is aching now though from standing squaring blocks off so the last lot will have to wait until later or tomorrow

Finally got clue 2 done. It's been a bit slow as my hands have been playing me up this week so haven't been able to stick at it for long. Like Didi, my back's killing me as well now! :(

Its the dark green in this picture, taken before I switched the pale green to the off white. I'm just a bit worried it's going to be too "green" overall once it's finished but I guess time will tell  :D

Right, I finally got going so here's the first set of blocks.

Sorry - more green!  I've made the second set too but can't be a..ed to go back upstairs now to take pix.

Initially I thought I'd make the smallest size but I night just have enough to squeeze out the wall hanging size. If not enough I might have to be inventive!
