GETTING THERE



Its been a while since I had time to do some of the stitch a long as I had other commitments.



Here is the friends block and it is one I really liked doing.


The shoe block for me became a pair of comfy slippers block as I  dont wear high heels and I am pleased with how it has turned out, my dear friend Dawn designed it for me so thankyou Dawn.
I also did the cat block but as a dog  and then I cut it wrong so now I am off to do it again. and I hope to have the whole row together by the weekend.
Bye for now Jude from judesstuff

Very comfy slippers! good idea really - I mean - let's get real - how many of us SALers could actually wear those high heels???

Comfy slippers are much better for our feet than those high heel shoes! I am going to do something else for my shoes too, and I have done a dog instead of a cat for my block as well. Slwly but surely, we will get there.
