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!

That log cabin Mummy-cat is amazing! Funny how the eye picks up references all over the place when we are into something.

LOL...that is a log cabin cat!

Green is not my favorite color, but the shades and hues of green you chose are wonderful

Those cats are weird. How strange that the designs look so modern. Somehow, I've missed the cats when I've been in the Museum. Guess I should visit that one the next time I'm in England.
