Today... Well, I took these fabrics out of the bags and ironed them set today - they were done with paints on wet fabric - they turned out fairly well, I think, but I'm not sure it's a technique I'll bother with again.
And the other thing I did today was to assemble a number of sets of blocks - I finished the little mystery quilt from yesterday, put together these jewel-toned stars from an old swap and put together 9 Christmassy blocks into a little table topper. It looks impressive, but the blocks were already made, so the hard work was done, really.
And I put together some of these double-four patches, as well - though I notice that one of them will probably have to go, as the contrast isn't great enough (though it's better than in the picture).
I also received some nice things in the post - these birthday blocks from Kathi, and two postcards, both from Kim - R is for Red and S is for Star. And that was today!
