MY DAD...

... is a child of the war.. so he doesn't throw "stuff" away ... EVER ..because .."it might come in handy"!!  For this reason I blame him for the size of my stash!! .. well I'm NOT going to take responsibility for it!! lol x

When my mum saw the little tree..


she claimed it! I said ... that's OK ...I'll get the stuff and make another ..WAIT .. said dad .. off he went to the shed and came back with ..


SEE "stuff" does come in handy xx

To-day I made my very last blocks for the Stash Hive ..



I thought they were going to be a pig and a nightmare! However lots of concentration .. and they were done xx Off to America they go xx

Keep smiling ( and hording xx)

Love these blocks - and your other recent swap blocks.
I know what you mean about the family tradition of saving everything. I grew up the same way. Although I seriously had very little when I emigrated to Australia, it appears I've made up for it.

See, your dad does have useful traits and obviously you have inherited this one.

Love your blocks as I'm sure the recipients will do.
