So if you remember, last weekend I started playing with a new pattern.

Drop Dead Gorgeous 

It has taken me all week to get around to finishing it but here it is. In all it's Bonnie and Camille glory.
Then yesterday I had a thought ....... It didn't hurt so it's ok :o)

Then last night this started to happen.

Three hours later ...........
The original block is 16" and my new block is 8"

again, in all it's Bonnie and Camille glory.
Not sure what to do with them now but what I do know is that there is a LOT of pieces in that 8"block
and I may have lost my sanity there for a while :o)

In other news, I finally made it into my LQS and actually remembered to pick up these.
Month 4 of the Cottage Garden Threads Club,

Oh yeah, we had a birthday in the house :o)
Miss Keegan turned 12.

I really have to stop blinking as these kids are growing way too fast.
The Birthday Cake brief was:-  Chocolate with cream and pink icing, no jam!

Birthday girl loved it and it tasted yum.

So it's a long weekend here in Australia. Mine has started already with the girls
 having the day off school so a PJ day it is :o)  
Hope you find the time to do something you love 
and please, if you are on the roads, stay safe.

hugs Sharon
