A new WIP

One of the tasks of sorting through Moms effects was sorting her sewing room.  She has / had many projects on the go and I'll show some of these as I unpack the packages that I've shipped from South Africa to Yorkshire - when they eventually arrive.

I have benefited so much in inheriting good scissors, needles, a few finished projects, a completed tapestry that is not mounted, many amazing sewing, patchwork and other craft books and magazines, as well as some unfinished projects.  

Mom had all her wip's and crafty stash sorted into labelled ice cream containers.  Amongst these was one unlabelled ice cream (project) container.  When I opened it I found this assortment of blocks and a small pile of fabrics.  The smallest blocks measure just under 2 inches, the middle sized blocks are 3 1/2 inches, the two big ones measure 6 1/2 inches and those four stripy ones measure 2 1/2 x 2 3/4 inches.   Unfortunately there were no notes to indicate what she had in mind but I will play around with them and hopefully find a layout that would make a pleasing mini wall hanging or maybe 2 placemats.  They're not my colours but they are scrappy and that's good enough for me.

Edit:  I originally posted this on 4th January from my android mobile using the Blogger app.  Well it got stuck while 'saving' and I couldn't get it back no matter what I tried.  It also caused my blog to freeze somehow and only after googling this problem today, and finding some ways that have been put forward to mend the problem, was I able to fix the problem.  Hopefully it won't happen again.
