Santa can't come soon enough :)

You know, it's not usually until I take my Mystery Block of the Month block photo that I realise how...manky...my cutting mat is. You can't even see the worst of it...there are big chunks taken out of the middle of it, pencil drawings all over it, and general discolouration is everywhere.

But I'm kinda fond of it :) It was my first ever cutting mat, and I've been using it for so many years that a new one would really take some getting used to...so I persevere :) It's going to take a special cutting mat to replace it, and so far all I've found is dark green...bleh. Anyone know where I can find a really pretty one? Maybe I'll have to rely on Santa to source one for me ;)

Anyhoo...what I'm really here to show you is my MBOM Block Two all finished! It was designed by Sandy Gervais from Pieces From My Heart, and if I am totally honest, I don't really love it. Despite the obvious appeal of the polkadots, I'm not all that sure that I love the Avalon fabric that the whole quilt is made from either. Could be the brown?

I'm hoping it grows on me.

Well, that's a bit disappointing. Hoping it grows on you too, particularly if you can't back out of it. Or can you?

I'm sure it will look gorgeous when its finished and you will love it . I think the block looks great !!!!

Suzi the block looks great, but yes I can see that the brown might not be appealing... are you still early enough in the making of the blocks that you could add in something else that you like?
