Ahead of schedule

Like I announced in my last post, I have been on a short brake from my SBS blocks this week to work on some blocks for the blue and white/cream swap. Over the last evenings I have spent some late hours stitching, and believe it or not; I’m ahead of schedule! The plan for this week was to make five of the ten sets I signed up for in the swap, but seeing how quick the first couple of sets went; I made six!


Each set is five blocks, I have made one extra for myself of each. I had already made three sets, and I have one set as a carry around hand piecing project which are about half way done – so I’ll be done with my swap blocks in plenty of time for the deadline :o)

Some of you have made some really sweet remarks of concern about my decision to take a break from the SBS, fearing that it will become a UFO; to that I wish say thank you! –and that I’ll be back to working on it on Sunday, and hopefully I’ll be able to make the list of 26 remaining blocks a little bit shorter :o)

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!
Sincerely, Anne

There is something about blue and white which looks so pretty and calming. These are wonderful--I can see why you made extra sets for yourself.
