The story behind the block for the Grandmothers choice project this week was about the ladies who opposed -in a very discreet and ladylike way of course - the entire concept of giving women the vote.
The block we have is Granny's Choice which shows as a large X mark such as might have been used to mark a ballot paper perhaps. The project began in week 1 (last September) with the Grandmother's Choice block which is quite different.
These photos are a bit of a mystery however. The day is very overcast and there was light rain for several hours which has only just stopped. But yet the photos, and in particular my block, look as though they are bleached out by strong sunlight. Earlier in the afternoon I posted a new discussion thread on the Grandmothers choice flickr page asking others to comment on how they take photos of their blocks. I will be very keen to read any responses.
