I think it may have stopped raining

So it may have stopped. 36 hours of rain. 1.5 month's rainfall. Check out this photo - it's just a few miles from us! Like when it snows here, it was gridlocked roads rather than flooded roads that caused the most trouble - I tried for an hour and half to get to work yesterday (I can do it in 15 minutes on a good day), and failed miserably - worked from home instead....

I have also managed to get some sewing done. This time last year I started a jelly roll sampler quilt from Countdown to Christmas. One of Linda's friend's saw and put in an order. She bought all the fabric there and then (unfortunately I couldn't find one print in the UK - she wanted it so much we ordered it from the US and that meant I could justify adding all that Happy Mochi Yum Yum to my basket which I used for my Swoon).

I have finally started working on the quilt and made the first two blocks

Star Choice

and Rolling Pinwheel

I also have a Jelly Roll of Joy that I'm desperate to cut into. Maybe at the weekend.

Oh, could you please send the rain this way! In 3 months we had 2 days of rain. Nature is thirsty, we need water!
Nice blocks.
