The women would congregate with their hair in "pins", their brightly coloured aprons tied tightly around their waists and they always seemed to be holding a tea towel :) Knowledge was gained from these little meetings;from how to burp a baby to how to grow the perfect lemons.
When hubby retires and the kids have moved on with their own lives, we will be ready for a change. Les would prefer a "sea change" but I would enjoy a "country change". Maybe a little town similar to the one my great grandparents lived in would be a good compromise for us; a coastal country town, close to the ocean :)I hope you like my interpretation of yesterdays block and the childhood memories that it evoked. The design measures approx. 18 1/2" square and would make a lovely wall hanging or a centerpiece for your dining table.
PDF patterns of the design, are available in my shop HERE.
Adapting blocks is fun and simple to do and is only limited by your imagination. Have fun playing and building your own designs by incorporating the basics and let your creativity flow :)
