One project that begins next week is a Round Robin in the Australian group, Southern Cross Crazies. There are to be 5 ladies working on the 12″ block. We have one month to work on a block portion before passing it on.
Some years ago I made a similar block in a RR there, and within a half hour of receiving the finished block I had made it into a tote bag, which was much admired for the embroidery on it – none by me.
Over time of heavy use some of the threads broke and the central button and some charms were lost, so I decided it is time for a new tote bag. Top photo obviously.
