It was Sheridan's turn to send out fabrics for the Around the Block Swap this month. I absolutely adored Sheridan's choice of fabrics, they were all from the grey and green color palette, and although the fabric pieces were small, there were lots of them.
The overriding theme for the blocks requested by Sheridan was squares, with some symmetry, no wonkiness and a variation in block size was also encouraged. I really enjoy piecing and therefore these blocks were a joy to make.
And now for something completely out of my comfort zone! Last week I saw a tutorial on One Flew Over for a gorgeous Linen Scarf. It looked so wonderfully easy to make that I was tempted to have a go at this myself.
Printed fabric: Liberty of London - Tana Lawn
I don't sew clothes - I struggle (and shudder even at the thought!) to take up the hem in pants and skirts, but this was truly easy, and the end result was even better than I expected. I love the scarf, it was intended as a Christmas gift, but I am struggling with the idea of giving it away. I can see myself wearing this, and may just have to make some more for the Christmas stockings.
Thanks for the tutorial Kate! This was seriously easy, and I now have a very classy scarf! You can find the tutorial here.
Also to all the US readers of my blog I wish you all happy and safe Thanksgiving Holidays!
