I have now bought the fabric for the sashing which is going around each block individually, black is the colour. Many thanks go to Susan who kindly did the sums and told me how much I needed, thank you Susan
I went to York for the fabric and when I got home found they had given me one metre short of what I asked and paid for, a quick phone call and the extra metre was in the post. Now to start cutting up 6.5 x 2 and 9.5 x 2 strips for each block, have washed it so no excuse not to start.
I have the october block for the CQJP challenge to do first and in a rash moment signed up for next year too.
I am also taking part in a round robin with 5 other girls from embroidery friends which is a group started when the EG stopped the forum on their web site, this group is open to non EG people as well just as well as I have decided not to renew my membership this year. My piece I started was based on gardens, I stitched a pedestal which I see as a bird bath and then sent it on to the next on the list, wonder what every one is going to do with it. Her is a photo of what I did.
so far I have stitched one more and today have received the next one to do so must get on with that too. One lady taking part is in Australia, one in the Netherlands and the rest in the UK.
