...well except in Morocco that is.
There have been Alice Through the Looking Glass moments round here lately, like when last night we found out that the government had earlier in the day decided not to put the clocks back this morning but extend summertime to October 27 giving everyone less than 24 hours notice. I can only begin to imagine the chaos this must have caused airlines and passengers, people with meetings, appointments etc., Only in Morocco!
I don't know if I shared my news that I am shortly to return to gainful employment as a p/t English language teacher at the American language center here. It's only a few hours a week but it will get me out the house and stop me turning in to a desperate housewife. The last few days have consisted of meetings, observations and orientation and well a little bit of sewing too.
Anyway, I started something new...fashionably late to the Tula Pink City Sampler!
On Friday I made my first Tula Pink City Sampler block using my charms from the recent swap...this is my favourite block. I love it so much.
These blocks are the perfect size and can be made easily from charms as the blocks only come out at 6.5" unfinished. They have proved addictive as today I made another 8 of the cross blocks. I used the charms as well as some old Parisville scraps and some solids (Kona and Oakshott). I deliberately tried to use different colours from those in the book as I want this to be my quilt and there was poetic licence with fabric placement as occasionally I didn't always have enough of one fabric.
Here's Block 2
Block 5 *edited to add* Oops, just noticed a problem with this one. I thought it didn't look very crosslike!
and Block 9
Here's a clearer group shot.
I've no idea how long my charms and scraps will last out so I may have to see what I can find online but I can't wait to make more progress with this one!
Hope you have had a great Sunday!
