Finally, this seems to be moving along again. My machine broke, but the beauty of using an old one is that repairs are simple: in this case I just need to order a new belt. In the meantime number 2 machine (a Singer 237) has stepped up to the mark just fine. My brain, on the other hand, is jumping from one thing to another, as if all the ideas that had been stuck in transit were all arriving at once, and all demanding instant attention.
So, I have been making more log cabin blocks to go across the top. I want these to be darker than the central area so am omitting the three or four fabrics with a lot of white in them.
At one and the same time I have been re-homing other left-overs in the bottom left. Oh, and pinching one of my newly made log cabins in the process (see the gap up top).
Never mind, scattered thoughts notwithstanding I am feeling pretty cheerful about this right now.
