After three weeks of sunshine, family and fun I am back to the cold wet reality of Portland… with jet-lag and suitecase full of Aussie sweets! It is the said “jet lag” that I am blaming for the lateness of Paper Piecing Monday…
For those of you who have not experienced the joy that is jet-lag, and in particular East Coast Australia to West Coast America jet lag it boils down to this…I want to be asleep when it is daytime and I am WIDE AWAKE at 2 am. Augh!
Enough whingeing and complaining and onto fun stuff…. this weeks block…
In my jet-lagged haze I named this one Simple Star, do not ask me why! The block is a 32 piece baby, and not really simple, but quite effective.
You can find the free paper piecing pattern for this 8 inch block here…simple star. Have fun with it.
Now that I am back home I promise that my posting will involve more than just green stars (not that there is anything wrong with green stars). A couple of months ago my laptop died and I have had to post from my husbands desktop…and for some strange reason I find writing posts in the office, surrounded by masses of Lord of the Rings Lego and Dungeons & Dragons books off-putting and un-inspiring.
But I promise to work through my discomfort and catch you up on some of the exciting things that have happened in my quilting universe in the last couple of months.
