We had a great day on Wednesday, as we have another challenge. We are going to do a round robin.The only rules are-there are no rules! The challenge is going to be to make sure we do not get the same block twice. LOL. I received this lovely block from Shirley, I have already started to add my mark. Look out Shirley:-)
This was my teeny block, which has gone to Rosemary, more of that lovely pattiserie fabric!
Here is the birthday cake that my artistic friend Kate made for Pat, Rosemary and I. (I am the one in the middle, nice and cosy.)

These were all the blocks. Margaret made the stunning tumbling blocks, a hexagonal challege for Pat. Pat made the lovely lilac star block, a yummy challenge for Shirley. Rosemary made the lovely subtle green blocks, certainly a challenge for Kate who likes zingy colours. Kate has done the seven sisters block with 6 sisters as there are six of us, another hexagonal challenge. The others are Shirleys and, yours truly, of course, this is very exciting.
Watch this space!

Sorry folks, have been really bad at posting, have had family, friends and housework to deal with, and visitors again this weekend, so this is a quick catchup.

Here is my work in progress, I am knitting for a change, I hope to reveal all soon.

I made these new clean tea towels to go with my new toy. I used some strips left over from my baguette bag. I think they are lovely. Too nice to use.

Thanks to all my wonderful friends at quilt group for these lovely goodies, for my birthday, what a wonderful group of ladies. Thank you, thank you.

Here is a picture of my new cooker, it feels like forever since I've been able to cook properly. Hope I can always keep it this shiney!!

Hope to catchup with a couple of finished things soon
