Another UFO bites the dust

Having made 6 of a set of 9 blocks into place mats [ see previous post] I managed to find the ME design and make another 3 blocks. Funny how one job leads to another! I have now made the 6 blocks into coasters lined with heat resistant wadding.

Today I was up early and had my EM going full pelt by 6.30am! I signed up for a Summer swap and need to make 10 blocks 9 1/2 inch square using a design that means summer to me.
Having looked through masses of patterns I decided on a French cottage with geraniums in pots. We will be travelling across France this summer to Spain in our old Land Rover.
Whenever I join these swaps it always takes me ages to decide on a design and then another age to decide on the thread colours. I am pleased to have made the decision on this one, as each pattern takes quite a long time to sew out.

I now have a question for you all....
What can I make / do with these ten ME'd blocks they are only 4 1/2 inch square. I do not need any more bags or cushions and cannot think what I can use them for.
please leave me a message with any ideas you have

What about bunting for the garden or some room in house?

What a week of ups and downs

Sunday started so well as I went to church but then I hit an uneven curb in the church yard. The damage did not look too bad but it ruined ...
