WIP Wednesday [the one without much progress]

I can't even think of much to write. I'm not really feeling inspired to do anything at all really.....

I finished the hexagons for this month in the Get Your Hex On Bee - I love these fabrics and I've used them a few times in my own projects - it was so relaxing to put these together.

I basted a few more hexies too - still a few to go!

And I've made another two blocks of the City Sampler: Block #8: Square Sets: the name comes from ceilidh dancing where couples form square sets. On Saturday night we went to a ceilidh back home with my parents. My Dad plays in the ceilidh band (and I use to) and it was a great night, catching up with lots of old friends and making some new ones! The fabrics are Snow Queen (from Northcott), Kona Periwinkle and Natural Elements from Art Gallery.

And Block #9 Coproliters. This is the name of the band. Where I come from in Bedfordshire is an area rich in Coprolite - a mineral mined at the turn of the last century because it was a rich fertiliser. The men who mined it were known as ccoproliters. Coprolite is fossilised dinosaur dung!!!! The fabrics are Alchemy (Blend fabrics) and Flirt (Moda).

Block #7 is missing. I am really struggling picking fabrics for it..... so it will have to wait.

I'm linking up with Work In Progress Wednesday and heading over there in hope of some inspiration!
