I completed this flower block over the weekend so now have 12 finished. That's half.
Here are the others on the floor in no particular order . ( the photo is showing me maybe too much Ming blue ? ) ( I am trying some apricot in the next block I have selected the fabrics for. )I have also put them where they will be positioned to see what colours need to be used in the blocks I have yet to make.

It all looks so much better for my being there but I was really tired after I mowed up the residue - it's quite steep to push the mower.
Today is fine again so back to it all...the washing will dry.
