June Blocks...check me off Chooky-Susan!



Chooky, Susan and the SAL Gals...I am so sorry for not keeping up with the comments.  When June rolls around I go into survival mode as I am the Head Secretary at an Elementary school.  June is a'crazy' month at my school.  There is so much to do to close up the school year and prepare for re-opening in September.  But I did it!  I'm done now until the end of August.  I promise to be a better commenter.  I am coming to your beautiful Land Down Under!  We will be staying with my cousin in Wurtulla but traveling around to see Melany, Noosa, Fraser Island and at some point down to Brisbane.  We won't be renting a vehicle because I don't think I can drive on the wrong side of the road.  LOL  I sure hope we can meet up Susan.  
See you soon Australia!

I love your blocks! I too am in the school system and will have a bit more time in the next month to prep and applique! Have fun on your trip. I hope that you get to meet up with other like-minded quilting souls!

Hope you enjoy your visit. We are pretty friendly in Aus. Feel the same about driving when we have been in USA. Let hubby do the driving then.

I want to thank each of you for your warm welcome to your beautiful country. I wish I could figure out how to reply to each comment. I used to be able to do that but now that option is not there? If any one knows how to fix this please advise me.
I just realized after seeing all the posts above mine that I forgot to give my ladybugs legs and a head! Oh my! How disrespectful of me! I must complete them asap....poor little critters!
I should have mentioned too that the monograms on my patchwork blocks are in memory of my wonderful parents....M for my amazing Mom and D for my also amazing Dad. Just had the need to include them in my work as they both inspired me to be creative.
