Churned mint chocolate, among other things.

I am pleased to tick another finish off the list. This quilt is made from blocks collected over a twelve month period in the six and twelve inch block swaps of QBSA. It reminds me of mint slice biscuits which is how I named it.

I have also started playing along in Lori Holts new Farm girl vintage quilt along. The official start in this coming Friday but I have been having some fun with practice blocks.

First I made a table runner which I have called pumpkin in a barn. Pretty original name lol.

Then I wanted to try a few other blocks so I made cherries, pears and a strawberry and turned them into a cute cushion.

It's nice to get a couple more projects finished. It's been pretty cold and Wintery here, but every now and then there is a spot of sunshine.

I have also picked up,a crochet hook, it's been years since I have crocheted anything, let's see where this journey takes me.
