Today's sewing largely involved working with batiks - this is not a big problem for me, of course. I fixed the edge of the NYB block (which only needed a bit of straightening in the end - not a new piece of fabric) and made this Goshen Star (10"), which will serve as the starting block for another round robin type thing I am taking part in - the Around the World Quilting Bee, hosted by Sadie. It's not quite like a round robin in that you don't have to do a round, just add a block each time you receive a round. And amazingly enough, the person I mail to is actually in the UK (the lovely Indigo Blue), which means that I won't have much at all in the way of postage costs and that it should get to her very quickly. I think this will be a lot of fun - the blocks we are making can be whatever we like, as long as they are the same size as the starter block - and of course, they should go with the block!
I also worked with some other batiks on another project which I'm going to keep under wraps for the moment - something small and I hope fun - there are a couple of possible places this project might be going, and probably in both cases, it's better not to show. Don't you hate those projects you can't show?
