.. today xx

I had this beautiful block from Australia ..

and a little extra in the envelope will go down nicely..

I also received some thing to read..

LOVELY xx So it has been a good day to sew.. I made some swap blocks x First the SIMPLY SOLIDS block..

I am not a fan of all this improvisational sewing .. I ended up following one of the sample blocks! To me it is like a dishcloth! But if Cyndi likes it ... who am I to disagree xx lol

I also made my 2 Stash Bee #4 blocks x..

MUCH happier with them x

As regular readers will know my mum is not so well at the moment, she requested a bag.. so .. I went to my FREE fabric and made her one..

I had too.. she might beat me up if I refused!! lol ...

It has already been used ..

THE VERDICT... "very good just what I wanted ".. PHEW!!

She LOVES the lining fabric too xx

Keep smiling

Diane xx

I love the stash bee block in the turquoise and blue colourway. Great block from Australia and I suspect there will some projects in that magazine that get made. No wonder your mum loved the bag, who wouldn't. Hope she is doing OK.

All this and you haven't even retired yet :)
