Almost a month ago now I attended a workshop with Adele where we made these blocks:
The pictures don't do justice to how good these look :-) They are about 7cm square and look great on my shelf. After finding out how easy they are to do (and after finding out that my husband has a drop saw and can cut the blocks for me!) I wandered off to Bunnings and bought some wood, and made some more smaller blocks for my Visiting Teaching sisters for Christmas. These smaller blocks are about 4 cm square (42mm to be exact...)
Then I made some blocks for my brother and his wife for their anniversary (just because I could!)
Thanks Adele for your quick and easy idea!
