New blocks and a finish

 A finished project for January! When I was making the QAYG blocks for Australia, I had to disqualify some of my blocks. One for using the same fabric in it twice, one for too heavy batting and one for using the finished size (10½") for cutting the backing which made a too small block. So I just needed to make one more block, cut them all to 8" and so I had this bright new cushion for a kitchen chair.

This week's 9-patches are in red and blue.

In the evenings I have crocheted some granny squares for Oz Comfort Quilts, and I will send my parcel tomorrow. The grannies are 10 rows making 10" squares.

We have still no real Winter as you can see. We had two new visitors, European Roe deer, never seen in our garden before. Sorry for the reflections, this was taken through the kitchen window when we all were having breakfast. The boy, on the left, has little antlers.

That little snow from Friday is gone again. No snow means depressingly dark days, cloudy days with rain instead of crisp snow with proper frost, blue sky and sunshine. I'm thankful we have not had those slippery wet ice conditions, but would love to have at least some weeks of real Winter before Spring can come.
