クリスマスブロック My naked Christmas block

Last Friday evening, I suddenly felt like piecing a Christmas colors block. I had made my Christmas DYB blocks with glittery blue and silver fabrics but maybe from looking at Jakkie's very traditional red and green blocks I felt like that. I picked up fabrics from my plastic boxes and pieced with pins. Next Saturday morning, I handsewed and finished piecing.

Saturday evening my husband had his 60th birthday party his university collegues and graduates held, though earlier, for him in suburban spa. I was invited too and saw lots of familiar people. They would come to my house and drink and eat lots when they were students years ago. It was very warm and friendly party. I ate and drank lots this time because we stayed there. I was given a big flower bouque of glory-of-the-suns, callas and dark-red roses.

When I came home, I found the color scheme of the bouque was just the same as my block I had pieced just the day before. Was there any person who had ESP? Me? Or My husband's secretary who must have chosen the bouque?

What amazing colours.

I would love to be able to add your name to the contributors for Quilts for Leukaemia. Any chance?

If there is something I can do for that project, I would like to do it with pleasure. Please let me know what I should do.
