    I thought your hearts were great. I spend ages playing on scraps building up enough courage to actually start on the quilt itself and usually after a few nervous minutes I can relax into it. I think freehand is such fun and no-one gets out a measure to check anyway ...

    I wrote the word 'sudoku' freehand on a lap quilt - thing is, the practice I did was miles better than the actual one! :oops: :lol:

    Thanks Marcia and Suzi - Suzi, if you've started doing them I'm sure you'll find they are not as difficult as they would appear - just care in lining the repeats up and cutting and off you go. And such fun seeing what the blocks end up like.

    There's a story there K, the last few months I have been knitting dog coats for the charity helping the galgos in Spain who are dreadfully abused and mistreated. And Rascal and Coco were really worked up over the red balls of wool and thought they were toys and kept stealing them. Soooo - I made them little coats and to see their excitement when we put the coats on them was just so funny.
