Blocks

There was a time when I was really into block printing.  I found it a great way to get my special needs students involved in textiles and in fact some of the students, especially those from the Torres Straight, were experts at making the blocks.  (Little did I know back then that this was a much practiced craft that their parents were engaged in.)

I also bought a bundle of blocks back from my times in India.  I still use them sometimes.

I have been thinking about embroidering my Xmas cards and thought these blocks might make some good designs but found that most of the ones I had were too big.  So, I went looking on-line and found this old book.

All the designs are copyright free, not too big, easy to download and trace and I think will do the job.  I don't have to use all of the design, just those parts that will make a small design.

Oh yes.  Trying to take large frames everywhere is difficult.
