Klosjes update (week5)

Reporting a very poor progress this week I'm afraid as only 2 more spools were added to the pile!

It was such a glorious day here yesterday that I finally ventured outside & sat in the garden to sew a little. I've started making them up into 9 patch blocks now as I go along, which will help me decide exactly how many more spools I need to make to complete the top.

Unfortunately, sitting outside has made me notice that the garden really does need some attention, so today as it's another beautiful day, I need to crack on with a bit of tidying up before I can sew some more.

Hope you all had a lovely Easter, I've had a little computer break for the last 2 & a bit weeks as I'm looking at a screen all day at work & sometimes it just gets a bit much. The up side of this is I have had a little more stitching time in the evenings!

Fancying a little change from pastels last weekend, I allowed myself to play with some bright funky colours & have a go at a new technique - fussy cutting.
This is Block 1 (nearly appliqued to the background) of the Brigitte Giblin BOM run by Material Obsession. I wasn't going to sign up for this but once I saw it was EPP, that was it, my resistance crumbled.

My Klosjes haven't been completely abandoned though:

Week 3 - 28 more spools
Week 4 - 22 spools, this brings the total to 97!

Thank you for all your lovely comments & suggestions, they're all gratefully received & I will be replying to all in due course.
