Phew….this week has gone by like a firestorm, hasn’t it? I can’t believe it’s Thursday already……but, I must admit, I have had to work all three days this week so far, so really, this is my first day of catch up at home…and there’s so much to do! (How on EARTH did I fit in full-time work before, I wonder?)
So here’s a quick rundown of what’s been happening here….
I sent off a parcel to Claire for her birthday this week……it was part of our Birthday Club swap and she was the lucky girl who I had to make a gift for and really ‘glam’ up her birthday, rather than just the normal fat quarter we sent each other…..
Quite inconspicuous, and it really doesn’t give a clue as to the surprise inside…….fully charged with Claire’s favourite colours…..red and aqua…
I really hope she likes it…..I just love a birthday, don’t you?
Then I was the lucky one….I won a prize in the Patchwork & Quilting Celebrations…totally unexpected but very very happy…..it arrived on Tuesday and how surprised was I?
This HUGE box filled to the brim….
I’ve got great plans!
I received a couple of blocks in the Scrappy Bee Block challenge….
…and I’ve even managed to make one myself…
These blocks are soooo easy and quick to do and take very little fabric….good for using up the scrap pile, as each take only a strip, 16in x 2 1/2in fabric in 6 different colours. NOICE!!!!The ‘recipe’ to make this block is HERE….a nice quick scrap buster!
I have managed to keep up with these beauties…
Now, today will be spent sewing them up into a wall hanging….can’t wait to get behind ‘the boss’ again today! It’s been too long!
