Two blocks

I have had a productive day in the sewing room today and have made my two partners a block each

Partner #1 is Beatrice from France who requested either Army star in country colours or Strings in neutral colours. I have noticed that most people have made Bea the strings so I thought I would do the army star for her.  We are also exchanging patterns, so I hope Bea likes what I send her.

My second partner is Brenda in Ohio who has had a run of bad luck with swap partners so I wanted to make sure she got her swap ok this month.  Brenda request was a paper pieced block Storm and sea in browns, blues and green.  I am still learning paper piecing and this came out 1/2 inch undersized so I will have another try in a day or so, but still proud of my effort all the same.
