Hopefully Chris and the days of the week have caught up with each by now. Barbara has managed to find a cafe with wi-fi so has been in touch with C&B Towers sporadically – with photos to prove she is not idling her holiday away with sight-seeing, swimming and sunbathing. The latest one to arrive is one of the blocks we shall be looking at in our forthcoming series of Evening Classes held at Stone Station. Its called Scrap Violet and we think its rather fun.
This arrival of this photo means Barbara has made nearly all the ten blocks we will be covering in the 8 weeks. Chris hasn’t even started … there’s weeks and weeks yet, surely? But life at C&B Towers has been hijacked by another interest – Chris has recently discovered the British Newspaper Archive online. She has yet to sign up and hand over money to read anything in full ( it won’t be long – Barbara) but one snippet that probably will have to be paid for concerns a several-times great-grandmother who seems to have caused a traffic accident by leaving her cart in a busy street during the rush hour – in 1865 – where another vehicle crashed into it and was “immediately overturned” throwing everyone into the road … And there the snippet ends unless money is handed over to read the rest.
Perhaps though its time to knuckle down and get some of those blocks made. Ten 4-patch blocks can’t take too long can they? Except for the choosing of fabrics … and the placement of those fabrics … and the siren call of that newspaper article begging to be downloaded so we find out what happened next ..
