J is for.... Jump!

Here's my block from this weekend's SAL with Karen. It was J this week. Not my favourite of the blocks originally but I ended up really liking it as I changed it! I'm sorry the photo isn't very good. I seem to have lost my photo mojo...


First, I decided to change the boy into the middle into a girl for me. Then she had to have a red dress, red shoes, and dark hair. Then I decided to make the other figures my mum and dad - so blue for my mum and green and grey for my dad. We're all holding hands as we jump too!

I have a new SAL to start today. Lina and I enjoyed working on Strawberry Garden so much we're going to SAL together on some of our WIPs. First Winter's Eve, then Evening in the Park (Mystery VIII).

Thanks for the comments on my last post. Some of those are big things to share but it seemed the right time!

  2. The block looks great. And it's even more special that you personalized it.

    I've done Winter's Eve and it's a very impressive piece. It didn't even take that long. Good luck with it.

  6. I LOVE how you adapted Jump. I'd steal your ideas, but I'd have to put in two fathers, and that wouldn't fit. Actually, I planned to do my three kids for this one when I *finally* get around to stitching this project. ;>
