Whew, talk about last minute!

Where on earth did May go?  I'm sure it was only yesterday when I was sending out birthday cards for those in early May. Maybe I've been preparing for Winter and slipped into a touch of hibernation, but not before a mad panic to get block A completed. This time I got fed up with being so picky about my colours going together so those little squares all got put in a bag and it was lucky dip when piecing them. Again I've put larger pieces of my border fabric in the block - hopefully it will all meld together in the end.
I hope you are all not so surprised by the end of the month as I was.  From a chilly New Zealand, warm hugs. - Miche'le

Ooops, I just realised that I have put the two halfs together the wrong way around ^#%$#, I told you it was a last minute rush job. Chooky, I will unpick (ugh, that word!)and resew it the right way around.
yours in a daze, Miche'le
