Just a quick one

I seem to have been running around like a headless chicken making things but have nothing really to show. Another block for the Quilt-as-you-go. I'm two blocks behind on the ladies at the class, I've done the patterns but not the block!
I think this block would make a lovely all-over design but you'd need a coloured chart to work from. This is next week's design. I just realised I can screenshot directly from my Affinity Designer programme. Well I never!
Loving the rainbow effect - yes I know there are eight shades in the block....
Hilary was asking about a workshop for a Christmas Box - this is an old one I dug out and will update   the fabrics.  The box is a 6" cube and I'm going to make a 4" cube with some stitchery on the front face too.  I did the little designs this morning and will prepare the materials this afternoon and evening. I've got so many things spinning round in my head but my hands just won't keep up with them.

I re-made the Ferro Rocher cake as cupcakes this week but they didn't translate so well, a bit dry.  I'm not sure whether I cooked them too long or the size just didn't work. The looked pretty although you will have to take my word for that - I forget to take a picture again!

So this is my short post this week.  It seems only five minutes since I drove home from work and I am just about to go and prepare some things for lunch tomorrow. A little smoked mackerel and beetroot salad with horseradish dressing. Yum, but I'll have to get some chewing gum to freshen the breath.  I don't want to breath that on the clients!
