and some shopping.
It has been quite hot here the last few days, so I spent the afternoon at my sewing machine.
These are the next blocks for Blogger's Block of the Month. This month's block is by Amy Smart of Diary of a Quilter.
Now I have 6 blocks in each colourway.
I also finished my last 2 blocks for the Civil War Quilt.
I have been playing with arranging the blocks in several different ways, but I still haven't decided which way to go.
Recently I had a morning in the city and after seeing this shop referred to a couple of times I decided to take a look. What a treasure trove of goodies L'uccello is!!! I could have spent hours in there!
Here is what I came home with.
A lovely collection of wool felt, ribbon, thread and some Barbara Brackman fabric, all of which will be used for a needlebook....or three. :)
Does anyone remember this book???
This is my very well loved copy. I've had it since I was five years old. I can remember my Mother reading it to us at bed time. A year or so later a teacher read it to us at school. Later still I read it on my own...several times. :)
Weeeelll, look what I found at Spotlight yesterday.....:)
Aren't they cute!!!! They are going in to stash until there are Grand babies! :)
