More Meshwork

I went to Annette's yesterday and we did some meshwork.
It took all day and I finished it last night in front of TV.
It was a lovely day.

Meshwork

Yesterday I went to the WQC workshop.  We did meshwork with Julie (aka Puddle).  We actually started on Friday night and had yummy cheesecake for supper.  We cut our strips and made them into 3/8' bias strips ready to start our meshwork on Saturday.

First up we made this block using 2 of our colour strips.
Then we moved on to the baby blocks below.
This was a fun class with lots of talk but some amazing results. Everyone used different colours.

Arnie's Cushion

Our tabby cat Arnie likes lying on the big cushions we have on our outdoor furniture.  I kicked him off my cushion today to sit and eat my lunch and he came and tried to pull it out from behind me.  I decided to make him his own cushion.

I hope he uses it.
