more patchwork

I am adding my latest Tula Pink challenge blocks this morning, seem to be keeping up with them, have actually done next weeks yesterday too but will not put them on till they have gone on the sew sweetness site.
                                                               block 22
block 23

                                                                   block 24

I am pleased with 22 and 23 but 24 leaves a lot to be desired!!  When I upload them to the site there is a cropping tool which I have now found and this does make them look a bit better but 24 was beyond help!

We are enjoying the most glorious weather here in the UK at the moment, how I love to feel the warmth of the sun on me, must admit would rather be sitting in the garden than walking about and it must be quite unpleasant working,some of the spuermarkets, shops, offices etc etc do not have air conditioning the air is pretty poor in these places,    the staff seem to be coping, our little Sainsburys is very bad but it is closing for a refit at the end of the month,   wonder if they will install a cooling system then as they really need it. Mind you we do not often have weather like this, they have said on the radio this morning it is the longest spell of hot weather we have ever had.

Enjoy the good weather, and enjoy sewing your tula blocks. Don´t be upset if it doesn´t work out perfect some time, the important thing is that you are having fun creating them.

Nice blocks, expecially the blue/turqoise one. We have some nice weather here too and also no AC around. This is very different in the States, where even private people have AC in the house.

The warm weather is lovely, but definitely not conducive to going anywhere or doing anything! My sewing/quilting productivity has suffered!

I like #22:) That fabric is yummy. I will be curious to see what this all becomes when it is put together. I am a bit envious; I need to spend a little time in the fun room.

All the blocks are lovely. I specially like # 24; you have done the variation in blues very nicely.

I like your first block, simple but very effective. It's hot here too and they say it's getting warmer this weekend!

These blocks are all unusual (to me at least) but I like the first one best, too.
Do keep some of that glorious weather; I'll be in the UK in three weeks' time. The weather here in Stockholm is stunning!!!

Funny how every eye sees things differently. My favorite block is #24 with the gorgeous blues. Each block is wonderful and you are really sewing along keeping time with your challenge. Stay hydrated dear...
