To the end of his days Bilbo could never remember how he found himself outside, without a hat, walking-stick or any money, or anything he usually took when he went out; leaving his second breakfast half-finished and quite unwashed-up, pushing his keys into Gandalf's hands, and running as fast his his furry feet could carry him down the lane, past the great Mill, across The Water, and then on for a whole mile or more.

There And Back Again
Block of the Month
There and Back Again is a collaborative effort between four Fandom In Stitches designers, Michelle Thompson, Lilja Björk Sigurdórsdóttir, Schenley Pilgram, and Jennifer Ofenstein.
This month's pattern has been designed for your stitching pleasure by Lilja Björk Sigurdórsdóttir.

All TABABOM patterns are paper pieced. A little lost? We have a full list of tutorials and other helpful information about paper piecing on our Help! page. If you have questions about the site or our Block of the Month, please check ourFAQ page.
You can join us on our adventure by posting your photo of each month's block to the Fandom In Stitches flickr group. The first Tuesday of each month, a winner will be chosen at random from those participants that contributed photos. That winner will receive the prize donated by our awesome monthly sponsors!
Remember, to be entered to this gorgeous handspun yarn from Fateful Fiber, add your There and Back Again block photos to the Fandom In Stitches flickr group! Only photos from the flickr group that are posted in December will be eligible for the drawing.

When I visit my parents later this month, I'm going to try printing on their printer - hopefully I'll have better luck with the sizing issue.
