Two blocks... two friends... two gifts.....

Another couple of blocks for my North Pole quiltalong....

Even in the North Pole ice-cream is loved....


... and somewhere to play.... I called mine the Rumpus Room....


Val is hosting the North Pole quiltalong... such quirky fun blocks

 ... and I made something for a couple of visiting bloggy friends...
(the cushions are a design by Nicki Tervo of Brandy Gully)


...... and found the perfect mugs ....


Today Teresa and Michelle drove up the mountain - what a fun day we had - here they are having a browse around Quilters Angel


..... they came with wonderful gifts ....


love them all - thanks ladies
things to play, to smell, to eat, to use
perfect

we did go to lots of different places.... but I kept forgetting to take pictures - too busy chattering....

this is a subdued picture of us


(Marina my purse was much admired.... we all love your handiwork)

Righto, Gotto Go.....I want to go and stroke my new toys and hide those chocs before Hubz gets home....

It's ANZAC day tomorrow and although none of my family were with the ANZACs  many of my rellies have served in various wars .....

..... Lest We Forget the price that was paid .....

I am so jealous! I soooo wish I was there with you all. I was scrolling down your pics and when I saw the tops of your heads I was thinking I could pop my head in the background but you had my purse with you so I was sort of there. Love the gifts that you made for the girls, they are so gorgeous and your north pole blocks are great!
