Couldn't resist!

When my husband and daughter went off canoeing today I found myself with a couple of free hours...should I clean out the wardrobe? No. Should I fold and iron the washing? No.
Should I make Vicki's second block? YES!!!!
So I did. :-)

I used the same background fabric as the block I made yesterday, and the same for the heart, but I found a piece of dyed 'stuff' I'd cut out of an old damaged fairy skirt I'd rescued from the charity store years ago, and it looked just right!
And of course, I added another Swarovski crystal, a pink one this time.

Now to find two wooden frames...and then I know exactly where I'll hang them!

What new things have you been creating today?

Hugs
Jenny

Not only can I break records moving trunks but also deciding not to clean and sew instead! and no wonder it didn't take you long to decide cause these blocks are so cute, I like your finishes.

I'm going over to Tozz's place to read her.
