The paper (on the back and not seen in these photos) is 8" square and the white stripes are 1¼" wide and 13" long.
I used a short machine stitch (1.6) so that, when it's time to pull the paper off, it will hopefully come off quite easily.
The first blocks I made using a single colour but I don't think I'll keep that up. I like the idea of more multi-coloured blocks.
This is how the blocks will join up showing how the white stripe meets making white squares. So far, so good.
Another thing I "made" last week were cinnamon rolls. The reason I put "made" in inverted commas is because I bought a tube of Jusrol cinnamon rolls from Asda's last week and all I did was open said tube, cut them up and baked them. Boy they were good!
Douglas isn't fond of icing so I left it in the bowl and just dribbled it on my own. Yummmmmmmeeeeee!
Finally, a funny thing happened to me today and I have to tell you about it. I was in my local fabric shop buying some dress net to make net Christmas trees like these:

As I was getting it cut, I noticed a lady on the other side of the counter looking at me. On my way out of the fabric department, that same lady came up to me and said "Excuse me. Do you have a blog?" I said "Yes, I do" and she said "I read it! I thought I recognised you and realised that's how I knew you!" I was astounded! This lady lives in a town about 20 minutes away from me. She doesn't have a blog but she reads mine and we met in the fabric shop in my town! Amazing! So, lady from the fabric shop, if you're reading this .... hello! It was lovely to meet you! Thank you for the compliments! :o)
