Thank you to Rosemary Margaret, Beryl, and Sheila's for your blocks, sorry my response has been a bit slow, I have had my friend from NZ to stay, and it's been a bit full on., will take a picture and pot over the weekend. Not to mention step brother in law passing away, andy operation being postponed. My head is spinning.

Sheila, thankyou so much for your cute nautical block, it did make me smile.

hoping to put them all together for a quilt for DH, as its 'his turn' for a quilt.

Glad you fixed it Rosemary, hope it holds up. My dh always uses grip fix, but he made a right mess of fixing my toybox my dad made me when I was five. W hen he stood on it many years ago. As you can't scrape off the hardened gunk. I still haven't forgiven him. And it's still a mess.

Oh my!

just thought about my kids sewing machine which stitched chain stitch badly ( i made perforated 'stamps' for my post office with it mostly) will have to dig it out from the cobwebs.

Also my mums old jones hand machine, just googled and depending on the model may be worth a few bob. I knew there was a reason I wouldnt let him indoors hijack it for mending sails!


NZ friend currently flitting around europe, despite this I am busy with Invoices and VAT, and pre-op visits to hospital, will be full on when she returns, as she is not one to sit still for any lenght of time, we have a gin distillery to visit, and tickets to Kensington Palace, and tea on her last day, as her flight is at 10pm!

DD had fun in Japan, soo many things went wrong, flight cancellations , lost equipment, lost custom made equipment, computer froze just as the show started.still she now knows all the music and technical shops in Tokyo. and loves the Japanese can do, no problem, we'll sort it out,attitude. Future problems will now seem a breeze ( i hope)

DH working all hours , cussing the weather and the part time attitude of the student pickers. my ears ache.

That is lovely Margaret, yes I have seen msqc, they always do lovely stuff, and suits me as it's individual accuracy.
My son (19) and I spent a while playing with the blocks to make all sorts of patterns. Not all symmetrical.

I know I'm jumping the gun here a bit, but I have a very busy few days ahead.

Here is the AUGUST block., it is a disappearing pinwheel, there are a lot of variations swapping the pieces, feel free to play around and choose your favourite.

glad to hear Katy is doing fine, love to her and the girls.rainbow

Good news, I have a date for my final surgery in september, for the permanent replacement. I will be trussed up like a chicken for a few weeks, but hopefully I will look like a bunny girl afterwards blush.

Always thinking of Fiona, hope all is going well with you. hughug 2

Hugs to everyone, and great work all round.

Blueberry season has started, looks like a bumper crop, so I may be a little quiet on here..

Emma, ditto what Winnie said.

Kimmers, calculating how much to save till next August, .. but how much for fabric and stuff...????££££

Glad the forum is starting to feel better, perhaps it just needed some hugs wink

Might go to Sandown national quilt tomorrow. If I can keep my purse in my pocket!!

Blueberry season is upon us, DH will be doing 18 hour days, I'm the support/backup to keep him going, I'll just have to speed up ,I have been very slack the last few weeks.
