I have not had my sewing machine out for an age so I took advantage of the fact that I was spending a quiet Mother's Day at home to dust off the machine.  I desperately needed to catch up with my Around the Block quilting bee blocks for April so that is what I worked on.

Rachel from the Four Wise Monkeys blog is making quilts for her boys.  I loved the fabric she sent out and it was fun to play with in trying to come up with a couple of blocks withiing the style she requested.

Then I worked on a couple of blocks for Susie at Yarnplanner.  More great fabrics to play with!  I love the fabric Susie had printed with her son's name it, pity my month is next, I don't have time to borrow that idea...

Having finished April's blocks (finally) I am back up to date.  Pity May is nearly half gone so I had best get moving on Rita's blocks and then cutting up and packaging my fabric because my turn is next!  I am both nervous and excited about this!!


  1. Glad to see that the machine is humming - love the blocks.

    Thanks for the comment on my top - it is actually a dress that loos like two pieces but is just one - you know that ones with the belt at the waist (or should I get a photo of the whole thing for you:) My bardin buy as part of my birthay gift from Tim and the kids!

  2. I love that first set of blocks. I want to thank you for your words over my blog. It feels good to know I am not on this traveling bus by myself.


Thank you for your welcome comments.
