Spring sprouts!

In the Bee a Brit Stingy bee the lovely Di asked for some scrappy-sprout blocks!

Have to admit I have seen these around and been tempted to make some as I love the work of Orla Keily and these so remind me of her multi stem pattern


Anyone got a spare £650 to buy me this rug!?  No!?  Shame!   Maybe I'll just settle for her mug then at £8.50....both available from John Lewis if you are interested!




Or maybe I'll just make more of these....




And here is my siggy block - ok I goofed a bit as you have to turn you head to read it but maybe you could see that as exercise!??  I did add a wee sprout growing up the side cos I think I can draw - well simple stuff anyway and I bought all these different coloured Sigma pens ....got to make use of them




Hope Di is happy....but if not I could be starting another project putting them in my orphan box!
