No 3: Do some baking. Made Amy Gibson's chocolate chip cookies yesterday with Dylan, and a Takaka Ginger Crunch (that came up as a google search) with Nadia.
No 9: Make own dinner. Pizza night - so the industrious duo were chopping onions, salami, ham steaks, opening the pineapple tin, chopping mushrooms and grating cheese. All I had to do was make the base, supervise even sprinkling, and put it in the oven.
No 12: Go to the library. Never a problem for me :0)
Tomorrow we'll cover No 15: Go to a friends house, when we go to visit Charlotte.

The blocks just keep on coming, I can add some 12" blocks to the list. I've unrolled the other French General jelly roll that's been sitting in the stash for a few years - Lumiere de Noel. It has the same red as the Chateau Rouge prints, and a very similar style. It adds heaps more cream and beige tone on tone prints to the mix, which gives me a lot more flexibility.
I found that my blocks were becoming a bit harsh, either with very strong light and dark contrast, or tending to go a bit Darth Vaderish... towards the dark side. While there is nothing wrong with that (unless you are Luke Skywalker), this wasn't the way I envisioned the final quilt looking.
I'm a lot happier about the subtle nuances of colour I can now include. See, this block has the same floral feature fabric... but a much softer feel. These will slot nicely in amongst the other ones I have made.

|Coxey's army - well, pretty much - I had to make a few adjustments due to fabric limitations|
Do you have a favourite block?
