I have received a few of my monthly swap blocks in the mail this last week – April and May blocks arriving around the same time - so thought I would show them all in one post.
First up is my April Christmas block from Ann (no blog) in Nova Scotia. I love this simple but beautiful block. Such a gorgeous star.
Next my April Adventure Block from Sandi in Kentucky. Love the bright colours of this block.
Sandi tried to make me a pinwheel block as per my request. She sent me the attempted block and it had issues with lying flat. So I did a little adjusting and now it is no longer a pinwheel block, but still lovely. More of those bright beautiful colours.
Then I received my May Adventure block from Sylvia (no blog) in Australia. It is gorgeous. I love the purple fabrics she used!
I also received my May hexie from the Inchy Hexie swap from Anorina, also in Australia. I love how the hexie colours correspond with the colours in the beautiful card she sent. Such pretty fabrics she chose.
That’s all for now, except for a picture of the progression of spring. We call these little flowers “honeysuckle” because you can suck the sweet nectar out of them. They are flowers on a plant commonly called bear berry – I think cause only the bears will eat them – but also known as Kinnikinnick. The berries are dry and flavourless. In my flower book it says “Their taste and texture is often compared to a mouthful of lint.”
Have a happy day!
Fun mail!! And I just now put it together that you (as in your blog self) are the same Janet as my June partner. :DReplyDelete
lovely deliveries by your postie.ReplyDelete
'a mouthful of lint' now that would be really tempting, not a good advertisement for the berries.
What beautiful blocks and I agree the first star block is so elegant.ReplyDelete
