Sidetracked again!

Mooching around other people's blogs, I came across these on Helen's blog. I was suddenly reminded that I have a set of scrappy cat blocks from a swap several years ago, and so off I went in search of them thinking that I could combine the kitties with some other scrappy blocks. I didn't find the little furry creatures ( I know they're hiding in that room somewhere!) but I did find these little blocks instead:

As they are quite seasonal I thought that I'd put them together and create a wall hanging at the least. I will be taking a machine quilting workshop in 2 weeks with Sonia Fox - I can machine quilt sort of straight lines, but that's about it. I know I will need to practise ( a lot ) to become in any way proficient and so a couple of smallish project ready and waiting seems like a good idea. This also gives me goal to work towards as well ( never a bad thing for me, I could procrastinate for Britain! )

As well as putting things off, my other vice is changing my mind! And, so I've done it again. I have changed my mind about the fabrics for my 4 Seasons swap. I would show them to you, but the feature fabric might give it away to my partner. Perhaps when I've made up some of the blocks I'll post a picture.

Today has mostly been taken up with getting ready for the kids to go back to school - who would believe that hair cuts and school shoes could take up most of the day! Still it does mean that we're done and tomorrow can be a bit more relaxing.

The colors in this log cabin quilt are really nice. Amazing how many fall quilts are showing up all over blog-dom!

Hope your DH did well in his race!
