During March I have put in about 35 hours overtime when I would normally only work 64 hours in total so you can imagine I've been pretty busy and the work has, in the main, been a steep learning curve so needed me to expend lots of brain power - not that easy when there's little there in the first place :o)))).
Little surprise then that I've not felt much like concentrating on stitching too.
However I have managed to drum up a little enthusiasm for the next row of my Ostrich.
I was vaguely aware that by now all my ladies were almost caught up with me and so I ought to make some progress with Round 6 which I've titled 'Opposites'
I had started off playing with flying geese in two fabrics using the two shades as geese or background but I really wasn't impressed with how the block had turned out - it didn't shout 'OPPOSITE!' enough to me.
So I had a rethink and plumped for hearts in positive and negative opposing each other.
Here are the first two blocks - I will probably only use one of them and do others in other fabric combinations as there are seven in the row so somewhere in the middle I would have an odd one out.
Then here are the next two initial blocks ready for cutting down the centre and rejoining.
It feels great to pick up some fabric again although I have to say I think it will take a little while to get back into full swing again and recover some energy and enthusiasm. Good job I have two weeks off work :o)
