hi talking about the block i messed up, i did have trouble finding the material. so might finish the rest and then see what i do.
 i am still working on the first block from the girls day out so cannot show that but can show another one that is finished. i did this one a while back.
had a visit from my son Gerard and his wife and 2 children this morning,it was a nice surprise as i thought i would be home alone as hubbie is playing bowls the whole day.
last thursday went to Stawell to the quilting group,and while there i always go to the craft shop to buy things and catch up with Cheryl from Cheryl's stitching. she sorted out some really nice material for the BOM from Bronwyn Hayes that is in the homespun magazine. i am looking forward to making that. i like the material very much. you did a good job Cheryl thank you

Hi. I have had a busy morning so far. first thing this morning physio at 9 am. some shopping after that with breaks for coffee of course. Had to pay some bills which i don't enjoy, but who does.
Some things got done on the craft front to.I have nearly finished the first block of Dolly and me. Can you use the excuse she made me do it if you follow some blogs and you see some beautiful work there?
 I also did a BOM i started about 4 years ago, i think. it is called Toujour. I finally finished the first block., and messed up the second, so have to go and visit the craft shop at stawell and see if i can get matching fabric.keeping fingers crossed.
i have to have a look at all the BOM's i have and decide which ones should be done first, I would like to finish some of them this year.

hi it has been a busy week, for me that is.
we went to Ballarat on Sunday,went to the market and bought some yummy dutch food,then we visited friends and went to youngest daughter.
the idea was to catch up with daughter who lives in Montrose, sort of meet halfway, but they all caught a cold and could not make it.
on the craft front i finished a block of the toy time circus. i could do a lot more if i could do machine applique.
after not being able to do much last year i am so happy to be able to do it now.
i am also finishing the Macca's farm quilt. it was supposed to be for a first birthday, but he is turning three next week. so not bad going.
