Oooooo, that's lovely Ploshkin. Very effective....

Hmmmm, 5" squares you say? ......I have about 50 of those little suckers I got from an op shop, and 2.5" squares you say.....hmmmmmmm...jelly roll you say? (I'm rummaging around in my box as we speak).....aha! fist high in the air with jelly roll leftover strip and a wad of 5" squares.  Triumph! I'll get right on it, end of the week, err maybe end of next week. ;)

Urgh, tried this whilst I'm not well, not to be recommended. I've spent an hour on it and haven't even bothered with the border. I don't know if the instructions are confusing, or my addled brain is being unreceptive.
I do know that a quarter inch seam only reared its ugly head near the end.
I'll have to have another try near the end of the month.

My B.O.M. will be late this month.  I am busy cutting and making shift dresses.  I rarely wear a dress but as I am due for an operation on 26th I will only have one dress to wear.  I won't be able to wear jeans because of the waistband, I will have stitches there.  Plus I am panicking a bit because they are keeping me in!  Arghh I hate hospitals  :(.

Why do I keep reading this as Book of the month?  Must be going dippy or too much :toast: and not enough :cake:

That's such a good reason not to have done your BOM.  I'm going with "The  :woof: ate it" or "I left it on the :bus:."

I will try if they have free wi-fi and I am feeling up to it.  I will probably just sleep, I tend to do that when I'm unsettled.   |O
