Being cheeky .......... March finished

I'm getting in early..........

Just in case I am a little naughty and struggle to post again this month I am getting in early, here is my March blocks completed.

I have never been this early in any SAL (hope it makes up for me being late Chooky).



I was so enjoying putting the blocks together I just had to keep on going.  How much fun I am having seeing the quilt come together.  I hope you like my colours, my kids arn't convinced, saying it is very different to what I normally do.

We have had bushfires burning in my suburb of Baldivis for the last month, unfortunately they have been deliberately lit.  It is so scary and they are burning too close to homes, schools and putting lifes at risk and putting  a stop to our main freeway system.  Monday's fire was too close to our home, lucky the forest has gone and we have vacant land.





Back to my studio to have fun.

Happy Stitching

Gee that's terrible about the bushfire. Just shocking - glad you are ok. The blocks are lovely and good on you for being early!

Well done - I hope those bushfires stay away from you and all the houses.

I am really looking forward to doing the pears...not so sure about the stars though.
