Powerless ……

We woke on Saturday morning to widespread power outages in Adelaide, courtesy of the wild, stormy weather that had come through late Friday night.  It was quite tempting to stay in the warm bed until the power came back on but we dragged ourselves out of bed and got the fire going before having breakfast and then settled back and read the paper in the warmth of the fire.

Luckily for us the power came on after a couple of hours, although there were people in Adelaide who were still without power late last night.

I managed to finish a couple of triangles this weekend.  For the one pictured above, I did the applique on a separate piece of fabric, then paper foundation pieced the top part of the triangle before joining them together then I trimmed it to size.  For a triangle like this it is easier to do the applique on a larger piece of fabric and then cut it to size.

  3. Your blocks look so good. I also do the work on a larger piece and then cut the triangle. Thank goodness for the triangle ruler!
