I haven't been up to much, but yesterday I received a delightful piece of fan mail from Lajla in Australia, with pictures attached of what she has been up to. She has my book and till now, never thought about reinventing random blocks. BUT -recently, while she was visiting a friend, she spied this orphan on a shelf and immediately went to work transforming it.
Here it is in the process of being improved:-)
When she had finished the piece, she put a sleeve on and it is now hanging in her friend's living room, looking a lot more fun and spirited than it did originally!
I simply LOVE getting photos like these, especially after going through the original Ohio Star block redo on my blog a few years ago, where so many of you participated. Amazing what a little surgery will do!
Thanks, Lajla! And thanks to all of you who were part of the original ugly block redo!
