I often forget that the blocks will be set on point so I probably should have fussy cut the centre differently but I'm not going to re-do anything on this block.
Looking at fabrics for the next block...
.... don't you just love it when you find the perfect fabric?

I punched holes in the papers that came with the BOM to pin to the fabric when first cutting out.

Hmmm, happy with the result, I quite liked this method. The papers were easy to take out and you don't have to remove the tacking stitches (they just lie underneath).
I have also been motivated by a recent blog post by Robyn at a Dog Named Banjo on cleaning and oiling your machine. Luckily I checked my manual first as my Husqvarna shouldn't be oiled but I should definitely clean it more often.

I like the recommendation to do this once every 5 bobbin changes - hope I can remember!
And yes, it would have been easier if I had removed the foot first :)
Hope you get some sewing time this weekend - and maybe even some sewing machine maintenance? Ok, I'll stop nagging now ;)
