Thank you for your wonderful comments. It seems we are agreed that our blogs are about so much more than just our craft, they are a source of inspiration and friendship too, and often a sanity saver.
So, after using my highly technical random number generator (here son, pick a number)........the winner of the red pin cushion and fabric bundle is Wendy in NZ and the blue pincushion is on it's way to Carole......congratulations and thanks for joining in. Send me your addresses ladies and your parcels will be in the post.
I had a lovely time in my sewing room on Friday thinking about future projects and how they might fit with my current fabric diet. This sweet little block is the result. It may be the beginning of a new long term project......my own red and white(ish) version of Dear Jane. I have had the book for years but never the courage to start, mainly because I couldn't decide what colours I wanted to use. So red and shirtings it is. I'm only going to make the blocks I like , and will probably add some appliqué blocks of my own. It will be interesting to see if it ends up as a nine block mini, or a quilt!
I had a quick visit to Dad in Bathurst yesterday, and this is what I came home to for afternoon tea. Carrot, orange and almond cake. It is the first cake my husband has EVER made, and it was absolutely scrumptious.
Hope you've had a fun weekend and found some time to sew.
