oh no you didn't

Oh yes I did!

Despite my wtf post last week I started (and finished) something not even on the list.

Shocking! - but I couldn't resist making those bell pepper coasters from 'Patchwork Please!' by Ayumi Takahashi and joining in the Zakka Along 2.0:


I only meant to make one but they are so quick and easy I made 3 - I couldn't do yellow because I didn't have any more yellow scraps - I better start using some yellow fabrics in projects to rectify that!




I did manage to make some blocks that were on that list though:

I made two Scrappy Trip blocks for the lovely Collette, I now know why everyone loves making these - so fun!



I finished some more bear paws, added them to the Flickr group and did a tutorial on how I'm making mine:



now I have to get back to work...

  23. I do like those peppers, we call them capsicums down here. They'll make a lovely table accessory. Even if it meant starting a new project, at least you finished it!
