Did you ever eat these?
Some of the first sweets I probably ate as they are soft and less likely to cause choking. Probably much healthier stuff around now with less sugar and E-numbers!
Well I don't usually work in these colours but yesterday I did!
It started out as one lonely block I made up as a possiblity for the Modern Christmas Tablerunner Swap - the original one that my friend Susan was running and lured me into - yes it goes back that far!
Unfortunately my partner didn't notice or like it so it has been lying around on its ownsome waiting patiently for it's turn to get friends or be made into something.
|The cute little flower fabric was a gift from my then new friend |
Helen or Archie the Wonder Dog as we also know her !
I had to have a look to work out the measurements again but actually it is a very simple make and fun to see the pairs of fabrics become sweet little Scandinavian interlaced hearts - usually seen in red and white card on the Christmas tree full of sweets! Yum - back to Dolly Mixtures!
Anyway one became 12 and here they are

I was left with a little pile of triangles
But even I am not that stingy! They went in the bin!
Onto some borders now and maybe a finish in February and a crossing off my Lazy Bums and FAL lists! That's got to be good!
