Modern Blocks Book

This book is now available to buy from Amazon (and no doubt other book sellers).


Here are a couple of pages from the book showing the two blocks I contributed: Just Jack, a 12" union jack block.


And Windmill, a 12" double circle of flying geese block.  I chose the name windmill because it was catchier than "Double Circle of Flying Geese" and because my Mum spent many of her working days in charge of the Windmill and Watermill section of the British Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings.  Occasionally she comments on my blog under the psuedonym "Windy Miller".


There are lots of other wonderful blocks in the book some of which you can see on the front and back of the book.  And if you put your reading glasses on and go grab a magnifying glass, you can even see my name on the back of the book which, oddly, was pretty exciting for me.  I have never been in print before so I'm ready to leave multiple copies of this book in multiple locations around my house for people to stumble upon and say: "Oh look, she's got the same name as you".

  39. When I first looked through the book I saw the Union Jack and sat up straight in my chair thinking, if ANYONE'S name other than Lynne's is on there I'll beat her up! I'm truly glad there was no need for violence. YOu and the Kristas so totally rock. And Angela, well, she must have stock in REdbull.
