.... after all those sneaky peaks.....

... being a proud Nana...

Happy Birthday to my eldest grandson who turns 10 today


I would like to be close by... and give him a great big squeeze

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

.... my charm pack runner and it is in it's new home with Sharon....

I used a charm pack of 'Sassy' to make lots of little pinwheels....


.... did a quilting design over each pinwheel block...

... and binding in a little black and white spot....


... and just because I think dappled shade is fun on quilts...


I am loving Michelle's alphabet stitcheries so I did one for Sharon
and hopefully she will find a little project to put it on



Sharon and I exchanged emails and had give sizes of table runner/toppers that we wanted

.... I was lucky to have both our swap items in my house at one time so I introduced them to each other...

...... both so different...



.... such a fun swap... 

Righto, Gotto Go......... trying  to make a stuffie toy!!!!
