All play and no work?

Playing is not always all play; not if you are a quilter and get to play with colours and shapes. The Plus Plus blocks from this post is still among our favorite pastimes.

Remember I said you can use these little plastic puzzle pieces to design quilts?

You make a little plastic quilt
and try out different layouts and colour combos
and replace borders or centre when you’re pleased.
Take photos along the way and you might have a design for a new quilt, or study them and use what you learned in future projects.
Wouldn't you love to live in one of these little houses?

    This is a comment about your post yesterday- putting up a flag when you are at your cabin. I think in U.S., we would not do this- too much worry about dishonest people who would break in when there is no flag up.
    Having just finished the Stieg Larson trilogy, I am looking for other Scandinavian mystery writers. I just read Nemisis by Jo Nesbo. If you have any favorites, I would appreciate learning of them.
