YOU MAY REMEMBER....

.... not so very long ago I said ... I'm cutting back on swaps ... !!!! OK .. it didn't last long .. but here I go again xx lol x This time it is with just one person .. Jo , who lives in Liverpool .. and wants to get involved with swapping xx ... we are starting with a Block-A-Month for 6 months to see how she goes on x.. I made her this block..


and now she is having a go x

I made my Christmas Swap block (yes.. same block x).. it is in the post to Australia..


I ALSO made this months Quiet Play block..


....this little fella was easier than the flamingo .. but I have decided my animals will all have SQUARE eyes xx He-He xx

Before I began sewing .. I got baking ....


..... they were in the oven while I was sewing xx ... the one on the left was from an article on what to do with left over mincemeat .. the one on the right is a lemon madeira cake x ... Only half of each as my mum and dad have claimed the other half !! lol xx

WHILE I was slaving away (!) the Postman brought me 2 more Brit Bee blocks ..


the lime green is FABULOUS x This is going to be one wonderful quilt x


Hope your day has been as good as mine x

The green does POP with the blues.

Now I must say that first block is MINE ALL MINE and I love it. Thanks for sending it and for getting me started with swapping.
My return swaps are ready to post but I'm taking them in to my group on Wednesday before I post them to you.
Super post with lots to see. You've been so busy.

You certainly have been a busy girl! Love all those blocks you have done, and received!
Would love some of that nice looking cake that you shared with your mum & dad, have to go and bake one myself I guess.

Lovely blocks and no wonder that your parents claimed half of the cakes.

You are definitely making the most of your freedom! Love your penguin:-)

Cute penguin! I haven't even chose fabric for mine yet. Will do that today.

Janet said...

Lots of fun at your house today! Mostly work for me. I think I should visit my daughters and claim half the cake too. Except I don't think they make cake very often...

I am really pleased you and Jo have found each other! She is a lovely person, and does some inspiring things!

I love your penguin and the square eyes look great! I may follow your lead.
