Bit of this and a Bit of that updates

Block Swap Adventures

I have only been in this block swap for two months.
Here are the blocks that I have sent.

To Shannon for April

She requested a Wonky Star in any colour and I decided to add the improvised centre.
(Woops.... edited to note that I think I might have already shared this block on my Blog, sorry for doubling up)

and for Linda in May

she requested either Greens and teals or blacks and reds with no specific block design.

I chose to open my Modern Blocks Book at a random page and make that block.
If I didn't do this I think I would have spend hours trying to decide on a block!  
I really like it but I am also liking solids and word prints at the moment :o)

Incoming I have received this block from someone ....... 
there was no info on or in the envelope so thank you to who sent it. 
Please step forward so I can give you full credit for it. :o)

and I have also received this lovely block from Kelli as part of the 
Modern Sampler Bee.

Thank you Kelli, it is perfect.

Mug Rug Swap

My Mug Rug has arrived from Anorina over at Samelia's Mum

I was also spoilt with some lovely thread and a cute note pad and cover (already in my bag)

I Love my Mug Rug and it has a new home already on my Mini Wall :o)

Thank you Anorina.

Don't forget that tomorrow night is ....

I know I will be working on finishing my Boy Story Pillow but after that
 I do not know but if all things go to plan (Aiden and Declyn, are you listening? lol) 
I PLAN on starting my FNSI activities when we get home 
from the Specialist/Physio Friday afternoon.

Have a great day and I will "see you" some time Saturday :)



  1. You will deserve a nice quiet FNSI tomorrow.
