Depression block for Carin in Sweden

Here is the depression block that I have made for Carin in her choice of blues, aquas and teal.  I had to pop some dark blues in there as well to make the pattern work.  I hope this is what Carin is hoping for.  Isn't the name for this a bit sad.  I know its a traditional block from the Depression using up scraps, but its such a pretty pattern. I really had to sift through my blues to get enough colours for this.


I think I must be spending too much time in the sewing room as DH seems to me missing me, look at him fooling around to try  and get into the picture, or just to get my attention.

Carin is my last PIF recipient for 2012, so I partnered with her this month so I can send her a fat package with other goodies in it too.  This will be winging its way to Sweden next week.
