OMG for November

Time to have a play around with that pile of  8 1/2" batik squares that I was given last month.   There is not enough to make anything big so a tablerunner it will be.    Having spent ages on Pinterest looking for ideas a decision was made to go with the pineapple blossom block.   


A few different colours were auditioned for the centre block and the radiating corners but black seemed to be the one to stand out from the others.  I have quite a lot of plain black in my stash to use up.  

My goal for this month will be to make a new tablerunner.   

We have hit the storm season again and true to form out goes the power again yesterday.   More storms are forecast for the next few days so I will make a start on some gardening while the ground is soft and the weeds offer no resistance  when pulled out.   Once that has been taken care of time to head off to the sewing room to cut and sew more pineapple blocks - hopefully we will not lose power again.    

Now that a lot of restrictions have been eased off due to COVID it is nice to be able to catch up with friends again to enjoy a meal together at a restaurant.       Hubs and I were very good during the week and opted for the healthy option when ordering.   I went with the Vietnamese chicken salad


And hubs the chicken ceasar salad

Happy sewing all

lovely block, batiks are so vibrant and the black is a wonderful contrast... have you got a hand crank or treadle machine.... they are useful!

I like your block choice!
Your salads look yummy. I love salads and eat them at least twice a week as a meal.
