Look what we found in the dark in the park
We will take him home
We will call him ClarkWell not quite, but other Dr Seuss characters have been spotted in the neighbourhood this week - swomee swans, humming fish, Brown Bar-ba-loots and even a Lorax!
So this week's task was to get the central park for my neighbourhood sorted out. There were a lot of conceptual challenges for me.
I was not really up for more paper piecing but I got some inspiration from Flickr photos of blocks with parks or playgrounds. I made improvisational blocks 8.5" square, the same as the house blocks.
Then I set about sashing the park with green grass and then a grey border.
I have yet to see 'The Lorax' movie but it is definitely one of the best of Dr Seuss' books. My kids and I love listening to the audio version read by comedian Rik Mayall (think 'Young Ones')
This week's stats:

I have not joined up with WiP Wednesday since June...so it's nice to be back.
