I MANAGED .....

..... to get some sewing done to-day... Woooo-Hoooo x

I made Jo's swap block for July...


that is going in the post in the morning x

I also made my Christmas Swap Block from last month into a cushion ..



(the pictures are dark here .. hope you can see x)

We have a Do-Your-Own-Thing day tomorrow ...organised by Congleton Quilt group .. and I have put my bags ready to go ... I always take a variety of things to do ...  I usually manage a bit of sewing in between the talking ,tea drinking, talking and laughter xx .... LOVE these days x

I printed off the Quiet Play pattern for this month .. its a koala this time .. but am not taking it as I need to CONCENTRATE .. and that just might be a bit difficult xx lol x

Many of you will know that I wage a WAR against snails in my garden... WELL .. I decided to see if I could like them a little better if they were FUN...




NOPE!! Still don't like them .. and they are NOT..


.... welcome!!

Hope you all have a good weekend x

You'll need a big bag of salt to squeegee that one!
Now you've got to admit it will make a lovely cuddly for a child so don't dismiss it... and I love the colour.
Love my next block and look forward to getting it.

Very cute snail!

I haven't got beyond laying out some fabrics to see if I like them for my koala. I'm glad there's a whole month before the next one arrives.

My garden gets all our egg shells to discourage slugs and snails. Sometimes I see them in the street walking around the outside of the garden. Can't say they are a favorite critter here either.

I am sure that snails have a place in creation... just not in my garden! But perhaps we would miss them if we had none?
