Behind but started....

Good morning.... and here we are in July... have you started your next block???? No pressure!!!

Well, I was on holiday in June - thank you Raewyn for all your whip cracking!  though it doesn't look like much was needed - so many wonderful blocks already - I have just been looking through them ....

Well done ...... I just love all the different colours of this quilt....

I went over to the UK - where I have lots of family including 2 of my 4 children and 5 of my 8 grandchildren - it was just lovely spending time with them and we visited a few beautiful places too.  Back again - delays in airports and a 1.30am arrival home but we are catching up on our sleep and I am busting to get back to my sewing.

I did my stocking before we left.... the block is not finished and I will get the piecing done this month done as well as the Pudding block.....


It's such fun..... I am so looking forward to having this quilt in my home....

Keep up the great work - I am inspired by you all...
