THIS IS THE SORT OF VISITOR...

I am happy to have in the garden...

This weekend as well as the birthday celebrations I made my mind up and MADE my UGLY FABRIC SWAP top!! OH YES!

The rotary cutter came out

I made these..

could be used as bunting for the Jubilee weekend..

then I trimmed..

and added a bit of this

NOW I have these blocks






that I made into a top.. (they are my dads toes peeping out from underneath..

NOW "all " I have to do is layer...quilt..bind... Hey-Ho back to the grindstone xx

Keep smiling
