Scrap Attack Strings QAL - show and tell number 4

Last month I was lucky enough to win a gorgeous charm pack from
Thank you Chrissy.
This spurred me on to make a lot more of my string blocks.  I have completed 49 and sewn them all together.  I ran out of usable white fabric so decided this would be enough for me.  I am not sure what I will do with it next but have been fussy cutting the flowers that I have sitting on the flimsy.  I still have a few more to cut out.  I am thinking a nice floral border would look nice - perhaps a nice hawaiian print.

Foto Finish - Red

The red in this photo are red hot pokers flowers around the edge of Lake Mangamahoe.  This lake is about 10 minutes drive from our city and is more famous for an iconic image of our local Mount Taranaki which is taken from the other end of the lake.  There is a lovely hour long walk around this lake.
