Less rain, more sewing

Well, this may not look like a very exciting postal day, but in addition to the lovely card ("G is for Giraffe" from Kim) I also got this package of Misty Fuse from a friend in the US, who bought some in bulk to share out among my surface embellishment group. We reimbursed her for it, but it still takes a bit of effort to order it, package it up and mail it to us, and for those of us who can't get it in our own country, it's great. I haven't tried it out yet, but am looking forward to using it with sheers and the like, as I understand it doesn't really show, unlike some of the other fusibles.

I also took a little time to make this block (you may recognise it by now) in blues for the birthday block swap. I am taking over for a member who has had to resign from the group I am not in (there are 3 groups) and so am catching up with the two blocks done already for that group. This is one of them (well, she wanted a 12" star, so it seemed sensible to use this one again - I really like it!). The other one will be this pattern, too, in Christmas colours. Maybe tomorrow.

Great star, like the blue version too. While you're about it, you could make us an African one - you'd be able to do it with your eyes closed by now LOL!
