Managed to spend a little time sewing today - frankly, it's not really the type of day you want to spend any length of time outside in, which helps. I did take Sarah to tennis this morning, before it got truly awful, but we were all glad to be back inside. Anyway, I finished off the white quilties - and decided in the end not to add anything else, as they just seemed finished. Not sure how well the detail shows in the close-up - I have tried to get close enough to see some of the different textures, as this is definitely a texture sort of piece. All five are similar - composed of the same elements - though the arrangement is somewhat different in each one.
By a nice coincidence, I got this lovely white fluffy ostrich in the post today - it's an O is for... card, from Jan in Arizona and is a really cute idea, and very effective. And finally, I knocked up four quick floral churn dash blocks for the March block lotto over on about.com. I have already made 8 blocks for this lotto, but a lot of people are making a few extras to try to set a record for number of blocks/winners. and they are very quick to do.
