Miscellaneous ............

Cathy hosts our Christmas Block swaps and we had a Christmas in July little swap and this is what I sent my partner Jeneta (no blog) ... it has arrived in WA so now I can show you....

Happy little dancing gingerbread peoples.....

This is one of Allie's lovely designs..... there are 7 different ones found HERE - I know I will be making some more of these.... 

Thanks Cathy for organising this fun mid year swap and thanks Allie for the pattern


The army pirate has had his birthday party.... I thought I would show you this magnificent cake made by my daughter ......

I'm not at all biased but I do think it is awesome


I have also finished last months block from Michelle..... which is lucky because the next one is out ....

... and the blocks so far ....

they are all so sweet..... thanks Michelle.... by the way Michelle has just put out her first book... Fusion Folk Art.... it is just lovely and you can see it HERE ..... so of course I have to have one..... I have been stalking Mr Postie.... then the problem will be which one to start first!!!

Well done Michelle and all the very best for the success of your book......

Meantime I have fallen in love with this idea

Fusion Blanket Crochet

there is a Flickr group HERE with pictures

I haven't even started yet and I want to do some stitching and applique on the blocks first

oh dear... why do I do this?

I'm trying to loose some weight - I keep hoping the sewing will distract me from thinking about food

Righto.... Gotto Go....stitcheries to trace, salad to dream about
