I'm a member of the Quilting Block Swap Australia blog and my partner for May was the lovely Kelly. You might remember I sent her this block:
During the week I received my block from Kelly, this lovely purple and green combo:
Thank you Kelly, that should be the last one I need to have enough now to put together. Not sure how I will lay them out yet, but I have a few ideas - watch this space!
From June I have picked this block to collect. Its a Scrapbuster block from the Little Miss Shabby blog here.
I thought I better make a practice block and it really is true what they say about scrappy blocks. It doesn't matter if some of your fabrics are a bit ugly, when you mix them all up (particularly when they are all tiny bits) it looks great.
Now I haven't blogged since Mother's Day and I know its a while since then but I just had to share a couple of photos! Firstly Mr Quilty Bits gave me these lovely flowers:
My older son Kieran made me brekkie in bed (sorry, no photos - I was in bed!), then my younger son Simon made dinner (which was part of a school project so hence the photos!). He made me this lovely Penne Carbonara:
Simon wants to be a chef, so in the interests of practice, I'm always happy to help test anything he makes. Here is the 'ta da' moment!
I don't often get a smiling photo of Simon so just had to share!
Hopefully I can manage to blog again this week, PC willing. Thanks for visiting my blog today,
