Blogger's Block of the Month and more.

We are up to month 9 of Bloggers BOM and this month the block was designed by my friend Cathy of Cabbage Quilts.

Cathy created a jewel box block.

Here are my 2 blocks. The first in repro style fabrics.....

....and the second in brights.

It has been a while since I photographed all my blocks together, so here they are.

If you would like to see the blocks that other bloggers have been making there is a flickr group here with lots of great photos.

While I was sick I started crocheting a cowl for my DD. I has been a very long till since I did any crochet and it is amazing how quickly everything came back. Here is a photo of my progress. It will be a little wider and I will add more edging to the other side as well.

 Currently I am working on a Friends of Baltimore block. Today I plan to start adding buds to this block.

It is the second day of winter here. It was a cool start this morning. Now the sun is shining and it is looking like a beautiful day in Melbourne. 
Have a great weekend. :)


  1. Your Blogger blocks look great. Hope to catch up with you next week.

  2. I love the two versions equally, how neat to see them all together. Crochet looks very good, I got very rusty after years of not doing any but it comes back. Great progress on your applique.

  3. Your blocks look fabulous Miriam, so wonderful to see all nine of both your versions!! I cannot believe we only have three to go, where has that year gone? Love your applique block as always. It was freezing here this morning!! xo

  4. I love how the blocks look so different depending on color choice. That is a gorgeous cowl.

  5. Great to see the blocks in two colour ways, one is cool and the other very warm. Nice work.

  6. You definitely have some beautiful projects in the works!

  7. It's fun to see your two projects growing and how different they are in style and color - really fun.
    The crocheting is really beautiful!
    enjoy the applique' and the weather.

  8. You do such beautiful work. The cowl is lovely.
    I usually go with repros, but your brights are dots - they always make me smile!
    After severe thunderstorms Thursday night, we enjoyed a lovely weekend.

  9. Great blocks Miriam, I so love the blue ones! Wonderful cowl and the applique, looking good!

  10. It's so fun to see two different versions of the same blocks -- they're both o pretty! Your crochet is beautiful too!

  11. Gorgeous,Gorgeous, so looking forward to seeing more!
    Hugs - Lurline♥

  12. OOo! both colorways look so neat.
    Love that applique block.

  13. Miriam,
    I am way behind on catching up with blogs. I just read your latest posts and love all the projects you are working on! I haven't crocheted in years either but may have to give it a try again. So glad you are feeling better! Stay warm with winter over there!
