Broken Dishes ~ block 11

Yesterday was Monday, wash day! The result ... less time to sit and stitch.

Block 11, Broken dishes was another easy block. Half the fun is sorting through my stash for fabrics, bearing in mind I am trying to keep more or less to the colour scheme in Laurie's book.

Envisage my floor ... the contents of a plastic container lying on the lid while I search for a suitable fabric. Why I don't sort the next two or three blocks I am not sure ... perhaps the exercise of looking helps me get into the mood for a particular block.
Reading the letter connected to each block often sends me back in time leaving me to wonder just how much things have changed, yet remained the same.
