    Sometimes my wrists hurt also. I have both Tenosynovitis & Carpral Tunnel!. Sometimes I have ta just hunt & peck. Boy does that take long while. I love my wrist braces!
    PS Your blocks are just wonderful! (Did I say that I love blue?)

    Sew beautifully pieced. I really like how you are open to various shades of blue as well as the differing colors of "cream". Have you counted how many different fabrics of each in your quilt?

    Thank you. I like the contrast in this block. And so far I have done everything by rotary cutting and piecing. Wonder how long that will last.

    JeanieG ... that's what I like too ... taking the time to look at the earlier ones and see how each made them unique in their own way.

    W4Me ... thanks for giving us these trips down Memory Lane!
    And yes, the contrast and fabric combos are bang on for this one!
    Of course, I knew they were going to be with that burgundy .... why do you think I was SO anxious??? Thank you for indulging me!

    I had to give you your wish eventually QuiltE. I chose Pig's Tail because I wanted the burgundy/red all through the block.

    Thanks Anael. I have now cleaned out the store of the burgundy. They only had another 1.5 yards so I bought it. Also cleaned out a couple of other stores of some Halloween batiks.

    And I have some witch boot fabric sitting in a beet juice bath today. Wonder what it will look like by the time I get home?

    ...................did I just hear an evil witch's cackle coming from BC?

    hhmmmm ... just thinking .... W4Me ... maybe that new crockpot of yours will truly prove itself as a witch's cauldron and brew up some fabrics for you!

    I knew there was a reason I had to have the black one.

    So great having all this encouragement.
    The beet juice fabric kind of worked. When I got home it was quite a nice brown and the resist was breaking down. So, a quick rinse and leave to dry overnight. Well, this morning I have brown fabric. It leached into the design so there are no witch's feet at all. Still, I now have a nice colour to start another batch with. I started with beet juice and now I'm making lemonade.
