There's a snow storm outside, and I am sewing up a storm inside! I always like to have a simple sewing project for storms, as our power often goes out. String blocks are perfect, as they are easy to pick up again if you are interrupted. I had a few sample blocks leftover from a class I gave at the Nova Scotia Fibre Arts Festival a couple of years back, so decided I would add some more to the pile. I dug around the bottom of my Christmas prints to find some usable scraps.
