I am in a strip swap on the Popular Patchwork forum,,, and we are swapping 14 red strips of fabric. I received my strips yesterday.
The colour is a bit 'off'. It is quite hard to photograph reds! I also went to my local fabric shop on Friday and bought another 7 reds,,, all washed and pressed ready to be cut into 2.5 inch strips. I have a project in mind and will be starting it this afternoon.

There are thirtyone stitchery blocks, and threehundred and seventytwo  2.5 inch squares to cut from my strips!!! I think I have enough fabric!! And although I went shopping before I got my strips,, I have no doubles!!!!
The weather last weekend was non-stop rain,, as it was in other places! I decided to go for a little walk into the village,,,,the sun decided to come out!!

The top photo is a field,,,and the water could just get under the bridge. The day after it had gone back down to high,, not overflowing!!
I am off to get some of my stitcheries started,, looking forward to making this!
