Over at the Rural Office the focus is still on squares but there are signs that half square triangles may enter the picture in the near future. A week before everything came to a halt Barbara had cut a bag of 2 1/2inch squares and we’ve shown some of the blocks that have grown out of that bag in previous posts. The bag is now greatly diminished but proved a handy starting point to lay out some reference pics for an informal online challenge with a group of indefatigable hand stitching students.

A further progress report in a future Scrappy Sunday post – happy stitching!
