These six are the last ones that I made.
A good distraction from 'real life' where Storm Doris blew down my favourite tree in the garden - a beautiful large Acacia tree which had just come into bloom. The garden looks very bare with it lying on the ground, mostly in our neighbours garden. I'm keen to replant, but we might change the tree type as we haven't been very lucky with Acacia's in that spot - we lost the last one that we'd planted there to frost!
I've also started playing with the bits and bobs that are left over as scraps from the year.
These little pincushions were the result of my first play time. The two smallest are just 2" finished.
Next I want to start joining some of the blocks up, making progress towards having a finished flimsy.
I've ordered some wide cotton fabric for the backing. Plain white as that was the most economical, which is OK as I'm not planning on spending much time looking at the back of it!
