I have decided to do group posts from now on for my City Sampler blocks. I am linking them to the sew sweetness city sampler along so they have to be separate for each block but it was driving me nuts so I am now linking from Flickr so I can do group posts here.
So here they are
That assignment I thought was due in 2 days is actually due in a month and two days :)
Just another roller derby bout that I NSOed in. I was the only NSO from our league and I was penalty box captain so it was a big deal for me.
Pick Pockets and Rascals
My brother organised a gig with some amazing musicians and arranged some of their songs to be played with a twenty piece orchestra, it was pretty fantastic and I was stage manager!
My Roller Derby league just had a home bout (the one I dressed up as a parrot for), even though I am not able to play yet I was still expected to help out. There were heaps of roles to fill everything from selling raffle tickets and cooking the sausage sizzle.
One game needs seven referees and about thirteen NSOs (Non Skating Officials)
I was one of the NSOs. I was penalty box captain. I was super nervous as it's a very important job and I had three other NSOs in the box to captain.
I had to remember so many tricky rules but I managed not to make any mistakes. I feel like I did a good job.
I named this block "Penalty Box Captain" to help me remember not to doubt myself which is something I do way too much.
Here is my second block from the book Tula Pink's City Sampler.
I named it 'Did I mention I'm a freakin white star'
In Roller Derby we have levels before we can bout.
I have just passed the first test so now I'm a white star. I never want to forget the feeling I felt when I passed so that is why I chose the name.
I love this book, it makes me feel all fuzzy inside.
I love that the blocks are numbered and not named. I am using this book as a journal. I am not very good at keeping journals I always forget to write in them. Each time I make a block I will name it after something that has happened in my life and write a little bit about it in the book.
I am going to use the lines marmalade and odds and ends as well as some scraps but each block will have some of this marmalade fabric to hopefully tie it all together as I am still learning how to match colours and fabrics.
I had a plan when I bought a few yards of this but I can't remember what that plan was so this is my plan to use it.
Here is my first block
I really like how it's turned out so far and I hope the rest look this good.
I named it "If all goes to plan" because I was planning to use it as my block for the sampler bee. I really like it so I will use it.
I hope all you Aussies enjoyed your long weekend, I know I did.
