Log cabins everywhere...
I had a request from the budding teenager not to wake them up this morning, so I let them sleep in (which they did until 10.30 or so) and did a bit of sewing on the log cabin blocks for the Christmas tree piece. Once they started stirring I put it all away and focused on getting them out the door so we could go to the British Museum for a few hours - really needed to do something and I wanted something cheap and rain-proof (and not involving eating at McDonalds, having had quite enough of that already this week). But still, I got the 6 all -green blocks done, and will now start work on the 12 which are part blue and part green. I wonder if the ones which are all blue should be pieced as well, or just whole fabric - will have to check how the textures work, I guess.
Speaking of the British Museum, check out these mummified cats - especially the pattern in the left-hand one!
