I am sewing along with the Splendid Sampler 2 and here are the next two blocks completed.
difficult near impossible for me, I’d never tried them before and ran into problems when the glue I used dried and really stuck as I tried to get the cardboard out. However that said a sampler like this is all about learning, and next time I try a block like this hopefully I’ll be a little wiser!
Clamshells was designed by Helen Stubbings. She sells English Paper Iron on Templates that would have been perfect for this block. But… I am not really an EPP kind of person so I made my own templates. If you are an EPP person you can find her design here.
Last week’s block is called Balance – we all need it right! I was at a craft group of friends last night and one of them – Jane, said to me as I went out the door with my embroidery – “Do you find this kind of work addictive?” I nodded because I do, and then
housework balance goes out the window.
