Hive 7 February block for Cyndi

Hello! This is Carla, who sews and blogs under the not-so-secret alias of Granny Maud’s Girl.

Cyndi asked the Hive 7 crew to sew blocks with brightly curved strips on a white background. It was a fun block to sew and would have been really easy if I had not been so uptight about trying to make the lines look like they followed through.

I hope I have followed the brief correctly and Cyndi likes them!

Cyndi asked us, ‘Where would you live if you could move right now? Why?’

I think I would move to Britain. I am torn between a cottage in a rural village and a flat in the hustle and bustle of London (I am a farmer’s daughter, but I love the convenience and atmosphere of big cities) but I know I would like to spend more time in the UK. I was born there, but I grew up in Australia. It would be good to spend a few years getting to know where I am from better. I love pub grub, history and old architecture, and, at the moment, in the middle of an Australian summer, anywhere that is not so stinking hot looks really attractive!

Yours look much better than mine do! My son is visiting the UK in a couple of summers and I so wish I was going with him. I'll trade places with you here for a couple of weeks if you want to get away from the heat =)
