Old Time Delights

I have finished Block 4 for my 
Girls Day Out Quilt

I am not going to add the sweets to the jars until the shop is ready to open,
or in other words, after it's quilted.

Had some more happy mail yesterday

and the first block for this one might have also arrived.

"A Day in the Country"

No plans to start it straight away, it is very tempting though :o)

If you are also stitching this one, Sue has set up a blog to help keep the girls
stitching it motivated. It is here if you would like to join in or follow.

Is anyone else stitching this one. If so i would love to know so that I can 
come and watch your journey.

Tonight is "Friday Night with Friends" being hosted by
Cheryll over at Gone Stitchin so pop on over and sign up.

I'm not sure what I will be working on yet, what about you?

Hugs, Sharon
